We really enjoyed our lunch at Jerusalem Cafe. It was quite busy when we arrived, but the wait time was very reasonable. Service was friendly and staff took initiative to advice us on what may be too spicy for kids.

The only minus was the Argentinian woman... More

Best place to get an Israeli feeling and taste. Well done. All the dishes were excellent!!! I arrived with 3 kids and in laws and we all enjoyed. It was Hanukkah so we asked for a manorah and got one. Happy new year to all travelers.
