Tangier Café - Great Barrington, Massachusetts

Tangier Café (formerly Fuel coffee shop) on Great Barrington’s main drag is a Moroccan-inspired eatery, which is apparent before you even walk in the brightly painted entryway complete with gold leafing. The distinct aroma of cardamom and other “exotic” spices sets the tone at the new spot, which is run by the co-owners of the longstanding Xicohtencatl Mexican Restaurant, Toni Bergins and Angel Espinoza Jimenez. The menu is heavily Mediterranean, and most everything is drizzled with high-quality olive oil. Among the many offerings — small plates of hummus or baba ganoush with roasted vegetables, specialties of kefta (spicy ground beef slow simmered, tagine style) with poached eggs, chicken kabobs, veggie couscous, even a breakfast menu that offers a plethora of eggs with herbed sauces and vegetables. Sweetened mint tea served in a silver pot with two small jewel-colored glasses. The lamb burger comes in a warm fluffy pita, crammed with greens and red onions and drizzled with yogurt sauce. A plate of roasted vegetables — peppers, zucchini, eggplant — shimmers with the signature olive oil and is served with a few pita wedges. It’s a place you’ll want to return to.
