While the convenience store portion of Loon is pretty standard (and more than a bit trashy), I found the falafel and hummus here to be unusually tasty. The pita falafel sandwich ($5.34 with tax) was not only cheap, but perfectly filling. It didn't feel heavy at all and consists of four or five pieces of garlicky falafel, chopped lettuce and tomatoes, and tahini sauce. The pita was soft and didn't get chewy, and the falafel was crispy without being crunchy, if you know what I mean.
The price was great (cheaper than nearby Falafel King or Lyndale Grill and Grocery). It also wasn't burdened with over-sized chunks of zucchini or cauliflower, and ice-cold tahini sauce, like at Holy Land Deli. Loon Deli has an understated, simple touch to their falafel.
I am impressed with the food here (if not the grubbiness of the joint). While both of the cooks are friendly and talented, I find that I slightly prefer the falafel made by the bald gentleman who adds lots of fresh herbs to the mix; the other cook, a mustachioed gentleman, does a great job, but leaves out the herbs.
