A crepe is the French word for a thin and large pancake, Salad / Omelet.
We all know what that is served with Zaatar Bread Toast.
We use only the best and freshest ingredients in the market.
All our dressings and cooking get the greatest attention,
using high quality Mediterranean olive oil and aged balsamic Vinegar.

Our Kafe is always organic and so are some ingredients when available.


Icosium was the original name of modern day Algiers (Capital of Algeria) or Al Jazair in Arabic. North Africa with it’s Atlas Mountains, standing as a barrier to the crawling vast Sahara, in the south was and still is a fertile ground to the best fruit, vegetables, grains, oils, meats, fish, game and dry climate to store it all.

That is why lcosium was called” THE PANTRY OF EUROPE” Belkacem El Metennani, native of the lcosium Region and the mind behind the lcosium Kafe experience, is bringing some of the wide variety of dishes “TAGINES” that North Africa is known for. From seasonal or regional Cous cous, to Merguez, to Mechoui (wholeroasted lamb) to Boureks, to Shorba, to Harrira, to Tagines…to cite the most popular.

Please come and enjoy something different, from food to music to atmosphere.
