Great Coffee Roasted on Site

We discovered this gem our last day in Jerusalem which was sad, sure wish we had found it sooner as we would have started every day there. The coffee is excellent and they take the art of brewing very seriously; none of that 'just buy it and grind it' mass produced stuff. The service was very... read more

While walking in Jaffa street home from long day in Old Town, this is a perfect stop for the last (??) coffee of the day. It was nicely warm inside in the cold evening. Macchiato was good and quality. The girl behind the counter was pleasant and smiling. We will come again. With at least 2 tables inside it would... More

I'm not much of a coffee or tea drinker, but I wanted to buy some quality coffee and tea for my family for my return to the States. The young ladies here were very kind in helping me pick the best from their selection, and I was able to purchase a good amount for a fair price. Highly recommended!

I happened upon You Need Coffee during my hunt for a French press (I'm living in Israel for a few months and forgot to bring mine over from the States) and saw that they had quite the selection. I found the French press I wanted and bought some coffee to test it out, and figured that would be the last... More

So, when passing by i entered "You Need Coffee". Coffee was excellent, and there were a lot of varieties to chose from (tea as well!). Variety of edibles was too limited and not too good (i.e. 3 sweets. however if you need savoury food to complement, there a a few next-door options). Not much room to sit, especially on a... More
