This is my go-to place for non-dairy pastries. I cannot eat any dairy and am in heaven when I go here. The chocolate croissants, chocolate and hazelnut croissants and apple strudels are all excellent. They also make very good pretzels.

While walking on Jaffa street I came across Sambooki. There was a very large selection of cookies and pastries. I purchased one of many different types to take home. Everything was delicious. I look forward to going back.

Our family wanted a quick, inexpensive lunch when in the Jewish Quarter. We remembered that Sam Booki had a store near the Cardo so we went there for lunch. My daughter and I had a personal size pizza and a soda and shared a jell-y...More
