We came to the Jerusalem Cafe in Westport with friends and family, all together about 10 people. The waitstaff was friendly and patient with us while we tried to decide what we wanted. My husband and I shared the hummus with pita meat, which is actually an appetizer but was plenty big for both of us. It was very, very... More

One of the best dish ever tried. If you are KC, don't miss out this. #tawookmashwi But don't go alone, they don't serve for one, it will be a to-go. I know, it sucks.

Food is good, price is good. I used to visit the one on 43rd street, there is also one in Westport area which is more of a restaurant. Haven't been to that one.

Two visits separated by a year- the Mediterranean sampler platter is enough for two to share for a light lunch, and the price is very reasonable. The hummus and baba ganoush are tasty, the pita bread warm and fresh, and the tabouli salad is spectacular. We had the chicken kabob and the gyro platter, both of which were incredible. The... More

We ate there for the first and probably for the last time. The food was OK but nothing special. The ladies bathrooms were dirty and very old. The hookah café on top of the restaurant was better with good music and nice atmosphere.

Whatever, you do don't pay buy credit card at there food truck in Westport. They will tell you that they can't give you a receipt and then you will notice that they will charge your credit card a dollar or 2 more than the correct price. The basically just hope you are drunk and don't notice or remember.

Used to be a fantastic Middle Eastern cafe in the heart of Westport. Now it is soooooooo average and barely that. I had been there about 8 years ago and loved it, couldn't wait to return and have time to make the trip downtown to eat at the Jerusalem cafe. Took 3 friends and was actually sorry I did. There...
