Went in for lunch and got one order of chicken swarma and the plate that gives a sample of several different foods. We really enjoyed it. The decor is nothing fancy and the restaurant is pretty small, but we will go there again when we are traveling through Vancouver (it's pretty close to the freeway).

We have been here several times. We usually have at least 7 of us, but have had as many as 13. The service was awesome. The staff really does know about the menu and make suggestions that we know we can trust. The Turkish coffee has no equal. We haven't had anything on the menu we haven't enjoyed. Great find.

I wouldn't say that the Jerusalem Café is going to set the culinary world on fire nor that it is the best Near Eastern food in the Portland-Vancouver Metro area, but it is tasty and lovingly presented by a friendly and helpful staff. It's a very nice family run place with reasonably priced food. The restaurant is very clean, if... More

Stopped in for lunch and ordered one of their lunch plates. The menu is Middle Eastern/Mediterranean and the lunch plates provide a small sampling of a variety of salads and side dishes from the region. My wife was recently in Israel and was looking for some great dishes from the Middle East region. Food was just average - probably because... More

We are very lucky to have this classy, understated little restaurant in our neighborhood, as well as it's brother restaurant in downtown Vancouver, Wa. The food is Middle Eastern and super freshly prepared. It is delightful and suprising cuisine with great bursts of flavor. Very good and absolutely authentic. The Jerusalem Mazza Platter is our favorite, and any way they... More

Leaving late I was sure we'd miss having lunch here but no they are open all afternoon! Bravo. I had been dreaming of their fresh Babaganoush and it did not disappoint. We had a Mediterranean Salad and the eggplant with pita and it was the perfect meal for two. This place is a gem, I shall be thinking about it... More

We stopped for late afternoon lunch and were pleasantly surprised. The location is convenient - just a few blocks off I-205 at the Mill Plain exit. The owner is delightful and put together a very good Middle Eastern meal for us - we lived in the Middle East for three years and can vouch that this is good and authentic... More

When I see you all voting Elmer's & Red Robin as your favorite places up here, it disappoints me a bit. Try something new. I've been visiting this location and the one downtown since 2001. Great food, fair prices, and you're supporting a small local business.
