Description: Nocturno is a homey coffee house, popular with Betzalel art students and other creatives. Nocturno is not far from the bustle of Ben Yehuda Street and Mahne Yehuda market, but feels far more local and authentic. It was one of Jerusalem's first espresso bars, and now has over 15 years of experience to its name. Located on Betzalel Street, it also has tables on the street, which give a taste of the city's exciting urban spirit.in the menu you can find special sandwiches, pasta, salad and a new special vegan menu. Nocturno located in "Designers In The City" complex.The Designers in the City complex displays exhibition of the work of about 20 chosen designers in the studio where they create, put together, work and sale their products to the general public. The complex includes designers of various disciplines - ceramic design, industrial design, jewelry, fashion design and more.

“The best plug-equipped café in the town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013

Best choice if

-You are a hypster or enjoy watching hypsters. Nocturno is a stronghold of Bezalel Art Academy students and all the people who attribute themselves to Bohemia.
-You need a plug. Every table, and even bar counter, has at least one. So come over for a date with your laptop.
-It's rainy and windy outside and you seek to warm up. They serve the coziest hot beverages in the town!
-You are a good judge of interior design.

Wrong choice if
-You want good food. The menu is characterized by overpriced pasta and stale sandwiches.
