After enjoying a tour of the "real Nazareth" of today our Pilgrimage Group enjoyed lunch at Liwan. Very enjoyable Palestinian meal and a very warm welcome. Cannot recommend it highly enough.

This coffee shop, and café is in the old part of Nazareth. The welcome is wonderful and warm in the coldest of circumstances. The food, ambience and coffee are really good. Can't wait to go back there.

If you want quality Palestinian cuisine, this place has it. And they can tell you about the ways that Palestinians in Nazareth are struggling to create economic opportunities. Highly recommended.
