Walked past without knowing. The entrance to the cafe is half way up the steps. Have added photos to help locate it. The cafe is a great place to relax with stunning views over Amman. The collection of art is eclectic.

I live nearby and I love visiting this nice art gallery and beautiful garden. I enjoy the ruins of a Byzantine church below. I enjoyed recently an exhibition on glass fishes, that was really fantastic.
