Lawrence's Cafe Moving from Buford Highway to Decatur

The Lebanese restaurant will open on downtown's West College Avenue early next year.

Buford Highway is losing one of its ethnic restaurants.

Lawrence's Cafe is moving from the relatively grungy but long-celebrated stretch of diverse eating establishments to downtown Decatur early next year, according to a Tweet from Oakhurst Realty.

The Lebanese restaurant will open at 910 West College Ave.

Here's a summary of what the joint offers from its website:

Lawrence's enticing menu includes soups, salads, kabobs, gyro, chicken, beef and seafood dishes; and a large selection of vegetarian meals. Specialities include Lawrence's Platter, a combination of six different dishes, and Seafood Tahini, large shrimp and sea scallops sauteed in tahini sauce. And of course hummous, baba, grape leaves, kibbie and much, much more. The lunch menu offers numerous entrees (large portions) and sandwiches. Desserts include 2 different kinds of Baklava and mouth watering date mamoul (naturally sweetened with dates), with Lebanese coffee.

And if you want to check it out before you'll have to drive down to Decatur, the site also offers a coupon for $6 any purchase of $25 or more.
