This review is about the branch in Mamila (relatively new one) Caffit used to be a monumental institute. Once in a while when in Jerusalem we used to visit and enjoy the fine food and atmosphere. The new branch in Mamila Jerusalem is not even a reminder to the legendary original Caffit. It is more like coffee to go in... More

Me and my wife really enjoyed the food over there. The prices were a bit high in my opinion but since the food was that good it was worth it. I really recommend this place to anyone in the area.

Located at 36 Emek Refaim St. in Jerusalem, Caffit is a lovely, little cafe. It offers patio seating, outside (sidewalk) seating, and indoor seating. The indoor seating is comfortable and air conditioned. Kashruth is Rabbanut. The restaurant serves dairy foods. We were hesitant to go there, because we had read too many reviews that said the service was not so... More

This is where local artists meet their parents and other funding sources to drink morning coffee in a (usually) relaxed atmosphere. The coffee is delicious and the food also is good, especially the salads and soups. Caffit is in the heart of the Moshava Germanit (German Colony), a lively area with a fascinating history, plenty of grocery and wine shops,... More

Did not expect this heat in Jerusalem but after a very long walk we stopped into.caffit. Their iced coffee slush is delicious and refreshing. We just had drinks but it was a very nice experience and all the food that was served around us looked yummy

We ended up filling a room with all of us so it was like a private event! The salad was soooo good. I shared their signature salad with asparagus with a friend. Also ordered the roasted cauliflower. Portions were large. Service was slow but we were having fun so no worries.

We enjoyed greek salads- crisp veggies and plenty of creamy feta! Cappuccinos were also delicious. Service was poor, she forgot water and our take out request but overseeing manager was nice to step in and assist.

My husband and I had dinner at Caffit during a visit to Jerusalem. We waited for over half an hour for one of our entrees and received no apology. We were largely ignored (no checking on our dinner or offering a second drink) despite a large staff largely standing around. No quality of the overpriced food could make up for... More

Had great dinner at Caffit last week. My husband had some mushroom and cheese dish and said it was delicious. I had grilled salmon on skewers and it was perfect. Kids loved their pasta cream sauce.
