About the Restaurant


Tony Chebib grew up in Falougha Mount-Liban, Lebanon. As a child he was eating the same healthy and tasty dishes which he is serving today. When going back home he still enjoys watching the chefs prepare local favorites.

Lebanese cuisine is simply good for you. The Mediterranean diet just got named one of the top three best in the world by U.S. News. Tony says, "Many of our dishes are traditionally vegan and gluten free. We use lean meats. It's all about the food we serve back home. People keep coming back because it tastes delicious and nutritious."


His secret ingredient is simplicity. By combining the freshest ingredients from the farmers market with recipes handed down through the generations Tony has recreated the Lebanese experience worthy of the Decatur pallet.

Tony has been adding his personal touch to Lawrence's Cafe since 1990. He started on Buford Hwy and has been wanting for the last 10 years to move his restaurant to Decatur. He says it's because, “People in Decatur really appreciate good food and value diversity, and individually owned restaurants."


In January 2013 he found a new home for Lawrence's Cafe right here in Oakhurst.
