“At a loss for good brunch in Jerusalem? Come here.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2013

Israel's capital is overflowing with good food, but if you find yourself experiencing falafel overload or loathe to think of having one more eggplant-tehini appetizer, you'll be relieved to know that Cafe de Paris is here to switch things up, European style.

CdP is a kosher bistro that sits on its own quiet corner at the entrance to the Rehavia neighborhood. There is a large outdoor patio in the front, tables that circle around a well-stocked bar and even a lounge area/smoking section towards the back. I came for breakfast so to be honest, my review is only based on morning food. However, they are open throughout the day, serving lunch and dinner, and the few times I've passed by in the evenings, I have thought to myself that it would be nice to even sit outside one evening with a glass of white wine.

There are classic Israeli breakfasts, for one person or two, and I went for the healthy breakfast: two poached eggs, fresh bread and butter, yogurt with poppyseeds, salad, quinoa salad with cranberries and onion, cheese, tahini and halva. They have eggs Benedict! With spinach! So I guess its Eggs Florentine...anyway, this is news for Jerusalem. I was always craving a good brunch during the two years I called the city my home.

The presentation is very artistic and although you are getting a little of this and a little of that, you will be totally full by the end of breakfast and need the coffee to roll yourself out of there. I also had bread pudding which was overkill after such a big meal, so I saved it and had it for dessert tonight. I totally recommend it- it is delicious.

They should translate their menu to French given the number of Parisians who seemed to have flocked to the place, but I'd also call this a "local flavor" place since most of the clientele sitting outside was Israeli.

Free wifi!
