This place. They really take pride in their food. It's so delicious and consistent. I think they have the best Kababs in the area! Thank you Cafe Elegante!

My tummy is SO happy!  Cafe Elegante presents delicious Persian dishes you don't commonly find in restaurants.  Not just the normal kabobs, but more of the home cooked dishes I really love.  So glad I paid attention to recommendations.  It was brought out to my car and the owner even brought me some extra treats because I was a first time customer.  I'll definitely be back!

What a find! After surviving the gauntlet that is IKEA, I was in search of real food for dinner and we found this gem. Great food and even better service. Everything tasted fresh and delicious. It was packaged properly to go and included all the utensils and condiments. It's not located in downtown Burbank where so many eateries are clustered, but Cafe Elegante is definitely worth seeking out.

If I could give them more than five stars I would. The food was hot, tasty, and flavorful. The service was superb. The manager went out of the his way to make sure we had everything we needed. They did a great job with preparing our meal as take out due to Covid restriction. Excellent!!!

The food is fresh and healthy! Love the taste and the people who manage it. I miss eating inside the restaurant. I will continue to support it with take out orders!

Great food and the owner is just the absolute sweetest person. I loved the salads he offered as samples because it was my first time there. All of the kabobs were delicious and the rice was perfection. Will definitely be back.

The food never disappoints. Excellent food, friendly/family atmosphere. It may be the only restaurant that the whole family agrees on when the debate begins of where to go. Family owned and just the nicest, kindest people. Did I mention how amazing their food is?


I am coming here for about 30 years.
It is the best Mediterranean/Middle Eastern food I have ever had anywhere and an international travel is my hobby.
This place is famous for excellent  food: tasty kebabs, rice with sour cherries, veggie platter, e.t.c. and friendly service.

You might live in Burbank or near for years and not know about this place because of the the location but people who work nearby know and love it.
Many businesses in the area were ordering from Cafe Elegante before going on working at home schedule during the pandemic.

It is always nice to see Greg, the owner. He is a very nice and
kind person. He works very hard and takes pride in his business.
You cannot find a better place for Mediterranean/Middle Eastern food!

I am writing this update review to let Yelpers know that during the coronavirus the restaurant is open for take-out orders only and they are great!
We are ordering 1-2 times a week and it is always a great experience.
I phone in the order and 20 minutes later it is ready to be picked up.
There is an ample parking right outside the door.

Try it - you will not be disappointed. I am always looking forward to tasty kebabs and rice with sour cherries - my latest favorite there.

There is a choice of lunch portion (1 kebab skewer) and dinner portion (2 skewers), lots of rice in both.

This place is AMAZING. The soltani plate was perfect. The both meats were perfectly cooked and flavorful. The rice is fantastic. We tried a few sides and they were all so good: from the eggplant dip, hummus, yogurt and Persian salad. The baklava was also very tasty. We will definitely be going back.

We LOVE Cafe Elegante! We always get the chicken kabob and it never disappoints. So delicious, mixes and matches with whatever you serve it with. For us? Some veggies and smeared in hummus... Light, healthy and affordable. They're SUPER kind as well, cannot say enough nice things about our neighborhood restaurant. Let's keep them in business...

Ordered to go. The owner is friendly and amazing, even offered me anything to drink. I'm glad to help this business who stays positive amidst the pandemic. Resilience at its best! Keep fight Cafe Elegante!

This place is so good that when my friends suggest Mediterranean/Middle Eastern food from any other restaurant, I am kinda not interested... I'd just rather have Cafe Elegante!!The best of the best: Their chicken breast kabob and chicken koubideh are magnificent. So flavorful and fresh! Their vegetarian appetizer sampler is BOMB! So yum. Trust me, you need to get this and share it, or if you're a vegetarian, this is the perfect meal choice for you.Their beef luleh and salmon kabob plates are also delicious. *** The man who owns the restaurant is a DELIGHT! So friendly and wonderful and he really takes pride in his business and his customer service. This is so rare these days and is a delightful extra! ***The only thing I would change about this place is the decor... I meeeeaaannnnn... it's kinda dated and could definitely use a refresh. Also, considering that it's always pretty empty when I go there (even before Covid), they should strongly consider downsizing their establishment and moving to a location with more visibility. Their location is in the middle of basically nowhere and can't really be seen too well from the street. But this is just my layman advice; I'm no restauranteur or anything. I just can't help but feel like they could be doing more business if they wanted. The food is SPECTACULAR. Truly. The best there is in LA County for Mediterranean/Middle Eastern food, and one of the best restaurants in Burbank of any cuisine type.A+
