Cedars Bakery

A Southwest-side bakery first and foremost, Cedars nevertheless offers a small and intriguing menu of Lebanese flatbreads called manaeesh and shawarma specials on the weekends. The sojok flatbread, with a topping of dry beef sausage, tastes like beef chorizo and begs to be ordered again and again, as does the zaatar and cheese flatbread. This "half-and-half" is best enjoyed with a bowl of lebne, soft cheese, on the side so be sure to order that as well. And remember to take a tray of cookies and a bag of pita bread with you before you leave; that's what Cedars does best, after all.
