The worst almost happened.  Here we were on a Saturday night, tired of eating meat for shabbat and then for lunch today and looking for somewhere dairy to go for dinner.  What is our best location option? Ugh, Cafe Muscat.  After about ten minutes I finally convince my fiance to go there.  We arrive at around 10:00pm and what a surprise – the line is out the door.  Did I forget to mention that it’s raining?  So we make a reservation “it will only take twenty minutes” and coincidentally park the car in the same spot we sat last week – and we wait.  Twenty minutes passes by and we decide to go in and see if our table is ready.  It’s not.  We float around and wait and finally decide to go down the street to Benny’s Pizza.  A place that my fiance claimed had the best kosher pizza around.  We leave and then we notice some people outside mentioning that they do not want to wait and leave themselves.  The girls jump at this opportunity and start calculating if we can get in any faster.  After hearing “they told us it would only be 20 minutes an hour ago” from some others waiting outside, I finally convince everyone to go to Benny’s.

When we get there it is my kind of place.  No line to order! Yes! We quickly grabbed a table and went up to the counter to order.  I ordered a veggie burrito, spinach slice, and a order of spicy curly fries for the table.  The burrito was not so great – it needed more cheese and beans.  It was basically just some white rice with veggies, I would definately not get it again.  Next time I will go with the cheese quesadilla to fill the mexican food void in my life.  (PS.  can someone PLEASE open up a kosher dairy mexican food place? Bravo to C’s and G’s for opening a meat place but I would do anything for some queso dip and a beany cheesy burrito.)  The spinach slice was excellent – although I wish I would have ordered a regular slice because that is the only way you can gage and compare one pizzeria to another – although now I have a great reason to go back!  My fiance got the Eggplant slice which was HUGE and tasted great as well as a falafel which was pretty good.  My friend and his wife with us both got the thin crust personal pizzas which looked great and at $4 each they can’t be beat.  They also got a caeser salad which looked kind of lame – this place doesn’t seem much like a salad place at all.

The employees were all nice and helpful and were pretty patient with our ordering.  Something I really liked unlike some kosher pizza places – I won’t name names this time.

Right around when we finished eating we got a call – it was Cafe Muscat, our table was ready (lol).

We didn’t pay until we left which was the best part – only $32 for everything! I like pizzerias that let you order like a king, eat, and then go up and pay at the end

I definitely see myself back here again! Great place!
