Hate to give bad reviews, but this place deserves it,
A nice place in the mamilla quarter of Jerusalem. We went for coffee and gave up after thirty minutes. There were two other couples there and lord knows what happens when they are busy. So give this place a miss!

Great lunch location - beautiful outdoor seating - great menu and business lunch specials. Salmon and burghul salad with root veggies stand out on the menu!

we visited the Mamilla Cafe on a dark evening in December, we were immediately impressed by the stylish decor, menu and attentive waitresses, who all spoke excellent English. The menu was "milky" ie no meat served. We ate a tuna salad as a starter, followed by pizzas and pasta. All extremely well cooked and fresh. Each table had the cutlery, serviettes and individual herb pots as the centre pieces. Highly recommendable

Best value meal we have had in Israel. Light (olive oil was apparent, but well used), tasty and inventive Israeli cuisine, great salads, pastas, excellent bread & spreads, high quality wine by the glass, didn't try pizza or fish. Extremely friendly about catering to kids needs. The first "nice" meal of a number in Tel Aviv and Jerusalem for which I felt good about the price.

Excellent food and service, esp. the Greek Salad and Pumpkin (yes, pumpkin!) Pizza. The salad will feed 4 or 5, so order appropriately, but it is the number 1 salad that I've had in many months. Note: the hotel stiffs the wait staff if you charge it to your room or pay the whole bill with a check or credit card. Be sure to check with them that they will get your (well deserved) tip.
