Take Your Meds - Neomonde Opens in North Raleigh


Hookah Me Up!  Our options for a healthy, Mediterranean diet just got one better.  Neomonde Cafe and Market is celebrating its 35th Anniversary with the opening of a 3rd location at the Harvest Plaza shopping center, at Strickland and Six Forks roads in North Raleigh.  NeomondeFounded in 1977 by the Saleh brothers who came from North Lebanon (Sam, Joe, Mounir , & DeGaulle), Neomonde has become an institution serving fresh breads and Mediterranean foods in a communal, family atmosphere.  The new deli and grocery features all the Neomonde favorites (Menu) plus an open fire oven serving hot pita bread.  Yum!


From Humble Beginnings:  With help from an uncle, a converted pizza oven, and space rented from a Raleigh strip mall, the Saleh brothers opened Neomonde Baking Company in 1977.  The now famous Neomonde pita bread started making its way into the hands of loyal customers and wholesalers.  Armed with their mother Cecilia's recipes, they opened the Beryl Road deli in 1989.  Also by popular demand, they launched a small Mediterranean grocery so that fans could purchaseHot Bread at Neomonde all the exotic staples and spices to prepare Middle Eastern cuisine at home.  Flash forward to today and Neomonde bakes over 200 different varieties of breads and pastries for about 300 wholesale clients out of its highway 54 Morrisville bakery/deli location and serves over 750 daily diners from its restaurants.  An American success story whose numbers are sure to grow.


Family Tradition / Authentic Taste:   Here's your first lesson in Arabic ... Kibbeh, Hummus, Tabouli, Baba Ganouj, & Falafel.  Utter those words Neomondeand you will eat like a king.  Lesson #2: Stuffed Grape Leaves, Labneh, Calamata Olives, Spinach Fatayer (pies), & Tahini.  Now you're cooking with olive oil.  Finally, master the dessert dialect ...  Baklava (walnut or pistachio), Knefee, Mamoul, and Bird's Nest.  These traditional Middle Eastern delicacies are tiny works of art and a delight to the senses.  And the smell of fresh baked Pita bread? ... Nothing finer.  The deli menu serves all these and more plus traditional roast beef, turkey and ham sandwiches.  The grocery offers a wide selection of spices, olives, seeds & nuts, dried fruit cheeses, Pita bread, and other Mediterranean specialties. The family friendly staff is there to patiently guide you and will have you speaking "southern" Arabic in no time!

Advertise TheBeltlineBuzz


TheBeltlineBuzz items are selected by our editors.  No one can pay to be featured on TheBeltlineBuzz. That's what advertising is for, and it's always labeled as such. Selling ourselves (literally) would destroy the legitimacy, integrity, and fun of TheBeltlineBuzz. Plus, we'd never earn your trust that way. So we'll never make a dime off your meal at a restaurant nor a penny from the sale of the latest accessory we told you about.
That said, on occasion, we will send out "Dedicated" e-mails on behalf of sponsors. You'll recognize them from the subject line: "TheBeltlineBuzz Dedicated E-mail." Yes, these are paid for.  And, no, we would never sell our subscriber list to anyone. Not for any amount of money.
We hope that you continue to enjoy your BeltlineBuzz. We look forward to delivering it.
