Our dining experience was pleasant, with delicious, unique food, and comfortable pillows to sit on :) The service was polite, quick, and helpful, and the prices were very good! I would go back for the hummus alone!

We had spotted this little restaurant the night before when we were walking around town after having eaten dinner at a different restaurant and I really wanted to try it, so we returned on our last night in Asheville. I was certainly not disappointed! We were able to sit outside (one of only 4 tables outside) and watch the activity... More

Love this place. We pass this place every time we are in Asheville. This time we stopped and it was well worth the visit. Everything was fresh and delicious. The service was excellent as well. We will be back.

We had a great meal. The vegetarian plate was delicious, along with the egg gyro. The inside is really nice. Not what we expected at all.

We were visiting in the Asheville area from Canada and came upon this restaurant for lunch. We wandered in, not sure what to expect, but it looked interesting. There were three of us and we ordered three different entrees: the grilled salmon, the Jordanian chicken, and the lamb shawarma. All three entrees came with warm pita bread slices, the best... More

Different type of restaurant, but the food was good and had a friendly wait staff. Not very fancy, but comfortable.

After eating so much in Asheville we wanted something healthy or a salad. I looked up Jerusalem Cafe and we decided we could eat some Greek Salad, Tabuli and Hummus. When we saw it, there was no one there (scary sign for a restaurant). But we had just talked with some girls who said it was good so we went... More

First, best thing my husband and I love is that lunch hours go until 5 pm. As we sometimes like a late lunch,early supper, this is perfect for us. We arrived before 4pm. Sometimes it is nice to have a good dinner, on the less expensive side. The falafel appetizer was good, nicely fried and served with a yummy sauce.... More
