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

When I was in Jerusalem about eighteen months ago, I chanced upon this tiny coffee shop and enjoyed my couple of visits here so much that I sought it out again on my return here this week.

conveniently located on the way to and back from the Old City, just a hop from the tram stop , this little place offers a cup of strong fresh coffee, the smile of the curly owner and some special cookies to go with your coffee.

This is a really nice place on Jaffa Street for getting a very well priced coffee, also the owner was most helpful when i needed directions, to the point where he went on the pc to show me the route. Excellent

Located near city hall and opposite the main post office, perfect place to have a decent cup of coffee. A couple of small tables outside let you people watch while you are enjoying the coffee. They also sell a large variety of coffee beans. Recommended

Israel is not known for their coffee, period. Anyone who says, "oh, it's the best I ever had", has never consumed anything good. You Need Coffee is either an after thought or you went there because you eliminated all the other lousy coffee shops on Yafo Street or in the area. One reviewer said the coffee is weak. S/he is...
