Been here for ten years, this place has been here longer but still remains as good as ever. Relaxed casual dining with excellent coffee, the takeaway platters are also highly recommended. Check the menu here http://www.cafejerusalem.co.nz and get your mouth watering. Shishlik, Schwarma, kofta's - all flavoursome and cooked to perfection. After all they've been doing it since 1999.

We came upon this cafe by accident and we're delighted to find great, fresh food. We especially liked the freshly made pitta and fab salads. Finished off with lovely Turkish coffee and divine Turkish delight.

This is one of our local haunts - every time we go to Kerikeri, we have lunch here, and we bring friends each time too! High quality food, everything has a very authentic taste and amazing flavours. Highly recommend it.

a very unique little cafe, with some interesting middle eastern dishes at a reasonable price! It's a little bit hard to find if you're not actually looking for it though! The names off the menu almost put off a little, as I had no idea what anything was, but the descriptions of the dishes calmed my nerves a little and... More

The food was delicious especially given that it was a take out place with a few tables in courtyard. Service was less than stellar and the young woman working at the counter needs to learn to smile!
