This restaurant is a wonderful place to dine and relax with good food and good atmosphere. The combination of restaurant and a book store works great.

It is located inside an old house with courtyards in the centre of Jerusalem so it may take a couple of minutes to find it (keep asking). However, it is really worth while. It is a cosy, nicely decorated place with both indoor and outdoor tables and it has a romantic, old-fashioned atmosphere. The quality of the food is very... More

Although this café is somewhat difficult to find if you are tourists as we were (you access it not from the street, but from the back alley went), it is well worth persisting in your search. The food is vegetarian and delicious. I am not a fan of Borscht soup, but the beet soup they served at Tmol Shilshom changed... More

T'Mol Shilshom is not a secret for Jerusalemites, but it might be challenging for tourists to find. Make the effort. This is a lovely bookstore, cafe, restaurant in a quaint old Jerusalem building. Go for coffee, go for lunch, go for dinner, just go! You'll have trouble deciding on what to eat. Try the T'Mol Shilshom tea - it's memorable.... More

I know this wonderful place since my days as a student, although nothing has changed and only good memories I have , it is still a great place to grab a coffee or to sit with a beer and a fine book,

Best breakfast we had in the city. The ambience is beautiful. Service very good. It is not easy to find it, as you have to entered some little streets from a main one. But it is worth it.

A bookshop-cafe with grandma furniture, to fellowship, eat or drink. Good food for a little bit too high price. A place to be in the shoppingcenter of Jerusalem.
