I came here specifically for the rugelach, and was incredibly happy that I made a point of doing so. They have rugelach in different flavors - I like the chocolate and the cinnamon the best: they're moist and tender and make your mouth feel loved....They do also carry other products (such as the eponymous marzipan, which I also loved) .More

If you like rugaluch, don't miss this spot. They are served warm and fresh and melt in your mouth. The same rugaluch are served elsewhere in the Mahane Yehuda Shuk, but only this bakery finishes them with a sugar syrup wash that elevates these treats...above all others.More

Their chocolate rugelach are the very best - moist, and baked with lots of excellent chocolate. We buy them for ourselves and to bring back to the states.

The best rogalach in the world!!!! Both the chocolate and the cinnamon are to die for. They are also parve. And, they freeze very well.

Was this place a revelation? Eh. But the parve rugelach and other goodies are certainly above the average for Jerusalem. We liked almost everything we had here; of special note was the apple + cherry 'rose cake' (really, cinnamon rolls filled with fruit instead of...cinnamon)--sticky and delicious--and actually the less-mentioned savoury pastries, including the little feta/Bulgarian cheese pastries and the tiny 'pizzas'. The spinach pastries were a surprising flop, with the spinach being overly bitter and soggy (this is usually my fave elsewhere). We got challah elsewhere, but the bread was quite good as well. The prices, however, are fairly steep, and the service is dismissive at best, taking the rating down a little. And if you grew up on kosher bakeries from the Tri-State area, you're not going to be blown away by these. But if you're in Jerusalem, definitely worth a stop in.More

so , we didnt find any marzipan in marzipan- just an awesome purely heavenly hot chocolate dripping rogelach - it is a machne yuda institute for years and definitely worth a visit!

Bakery with every day fresh bread and pastry - people very helpful and very good price. Choose the rogelles, it is with chocolate and it is not too sweet they also have pastry with halva that are very very good.

I go to Israel 1-3 times per year and always, yes always stop at Marzipan for the chocolate rugelach, It adds a nice touch to a Shabbat dinner.

Hi- It will stay fresh for a week or so at room temperature. If frozen, which is what I do when I bring it back to the states, it can stay fresh for months.
