Village Voice's Description

St. Mark's stalwart Cafe Rakka has spawned an offspring on Avenue B. And the kid is as good as the parent, maybe better when it comes to coffee. When you get the cardamon-scented cup of java, it comes with a free refill cradled in an elegant brass pot. Note to caffeine fiends: You're supposed to leave the mud in the bottom.

    No better cheap lunch in the East Village than the mujadara at Cafe Rakka, a fluffy salad of cracked wheat and green lentils, dressed with flavorful olive oil.
