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.

I first visited Café Jerusalem about 15 years ago - and have been an occasional, casual diner whenever passing through or staying in Kerikeri.

Had lunch outside here a few weeks ago. Nice courtyard for the good weather. Excellent hummus and tasty flatbreads. Enjoyed a lamb pitta too, good flavours and reasonably priced. A friend told me to try this place and so glad we did! Cool place, good job Cafe Jerusalem
