Café is situated in a beautiful building in the Sheik Jarrah area. Their menu is very basic, sandwiches, salads and a limited choice of pizza's, but I was happy to have chosen the Anchovy Pizza! Really nice, bit salty but so nice. The café is housed in a nice building + garden. Cleaning the garden and the premises would certainly... More

My friends and I have made this cafe our regular in Jerusalem. The seating is very pleasant, whether outdoor or indoor! The place offers great food; a rich variety of salads and sandwiches. The cafe is suitable for brunches and lunches with a small group of friends or even for studying or reading. However, I do not recommend this place... More

I had a chicken sandwich and it was the best that I have had for a long time. The garden is tranquil and beautiful it is a nice oasis in Jerusalem with great service.

The terrasse is really nice, though, close to the road. The food is ok but nothing special. However, their lemon-mint is really nice !

One of my "livingrooms". Helpful and friendly staff, good pizzas, salads and smoothies and coffee. Not the cheapest but worth the moneyin my opinion. Plus you can meet interesting people. Can recommend for breakfast, lunch, evening chill with friends and everything in between. Nice terrace with view over East-Jerusalem neighborhoods.

Nice food. Great terrace. But having to order everything inside and pay for everything in advance is just annoying and not very customer focused.

Really one of few Cafés in East Jerusalem, and one of the best anywhere, their coffee is great, the old house atmosphere is amazing, and their chocolate cake thing is to die for. Parking is descent (depends on when you go) and make sure you get that card thing.

The food is fresh, the location, the place and the view are amazing, and the prices are very reasonable. Good place to make friends/meet people. Its comfortable to be there without a company as well.
