…For nearly a quarter of a century Café Barada has been serving and creating freshly prepared Lebanese dishes for all to enjoy.

The Salameh family first opened Cafe Barada in a small location in the town of Arlington. The name Café Barada is derived from Haouch-Barada, a small village where our family is from in Lebanon.

Our opening day in 1985 would not have been made possible without the help of Afifi Salameh,
our mother and grandmother.

So while the restaurant has changed locations several times since it opened, our goal has always remained the same to bring a little bit of our home and culture into the lives of our patrons. From our family to yours we thank you for your patronage over the past 24 years and we look forward to serving you for many years to come…
