My favorite place growing up and still holds magic as a this really tiny piece of jerusalem goodness. Locals know of it as the best place for dessert and winter outings. it's really cramped and small but you always meet new people and good music...More

Babette used to be one of these places that people came to Jerusalem especially for. Think of it as the Soup Nazi of Waffles. People would line up outside this tiny joint at 11PM mid-week to get their tasty, crisp Waffles with unique home-made toppings...More

Waffles are tasty, but surroundings are tacky. No plates, no napkins, no place to sit. If you're under twenty, you'll love it. Over 20, pass.

This place is a central place in becoming a local here in Jerusalem. Even though it has changed a little over the years the awesome waffles are the same! I think the simpler the better, the butter cream is my favorite topping!
