About Us

Café Izmir is a small, neighborhood restaurant located on Lower Greenville where guests can enjoy home-cooked Mediterranean fare.

We opened our doors in 1996 with a book of Mama Nazy’s recipes, eager friends and family at our doors and a mission to introduce Mediterranean “Tapas” to Dallas, Texas.

Our concept is simple; fresh, healthy food prepared daily and available seven days a week. Mama Nazy’s old world recipes capture the essence of Greek, Turkish, Lebanese and Persian cuisine.  Word of our delicious food spread throughout the area and Café Izmir Regulars were born! Not only does our famous Hummus keep guests coming back but they also crave it as soon as they leave!

We have live Spanish guitar music on the weekends and daily specials for our guests.  We can also  cater off-site or host a great party at our place! Our catering kitchen can help with your catering needs.

Whether you dined with us in 1996 or recently, you will still get the consistency in food and service. Have a seat in the main dining room or enclosed patio; Café Izmir provides an upscale, casual environment that highlights the sights and aromas of the Iranian culture.
