Don't under- estimate this cafe as it doubles as a restaurant and the food is excellent. Not a large number of tables so book early and the front of house staff are friendly and knowledgeable.

Healthy tasty food. Menu hasn't changed but why change for the sake of it, when it is so good. Prices very reasonable, quality consistent,

Kebabs were delicious. Price a little high for the portion size but I will definitely be returning to try the platters.

Stumbled across the Cafe Jerusalem food van at a market and thoroughly enjoyed a late breakfast of a pita wrap.

Great food and location but unfortunate service with a sour,unfriendly person.Some good vegetarian options but I was not able to have my usual combo as the serving person disagreed with me and could not give me my request.Disappointing as this has always been a favourite lunch spot.

Fast, efficient service, tasty flavours, healthy, variety, cost effective, eat in out takeout. My personal favourite is the lamb swarma. Pick your own toppings and enjoy.

We were happy with the tasty mezze platter for 2, which consisted of 4 main choices, salad, humous, and pitta bread. Staff were very friendly and the food was quite delicious. Definitely worth a visit (or two) if you live or are passing through Kerikeri. I will return!

Good food. We ordered a chicken and a kokta meal. They came out quickly and were good. Hummus was excellent, wished there were more. Pita bread looked store bought. Nice food.
