This place is Okay for pizza but not recommended for anything else. The salads are nothing but iceberg lettuce, the fish is tiny, overpriced, and poorly cooked, and the pasta is slopped on the plate with unrecognizable sauce (we ordered penne ala vodka and got something that was spicy, bright red, and had a pile of half cooked onions in it). The service is essentially nonexistent (we barely got the woman at the counter to stop talking on the phone long enough to take our order) and the place is old and dirty. That said, the pizza seemed fine and the kids enjoyed it, so if you are kosher and in the area, by all means bring the kids here for pizza... but don't expect to get much else.

Cafe Eilat's food is ok for an out-of-town kosher pizza shop. They do have sushi which I've been told is pretty good.
If you want pizza, you will get better and fresher pizza by ordering a whole pie instead of getting slices.

It's a great non meat Kosher place. The price is fair for Kosher food, the pizza is good, and it's a great solution for a big crowd with Kosher restrictions

Although this is called a "cafe," it seemed more like a pizza store to my friend and I. But they have a nice menu with other items besides pizza, like sushi and salad. The food was very good and the service was pretty quick. We took our food to go but just from taking a quick glance around, it seemed very clean!

Ordered a normal cheese pizza to go. The sauce was dark in color. The dough was not cooked all the way. There was not enough cheese or sauce. It basically was horrible in every way. They didn't even seal the pizza box with tape, so it opened a bit in the car. I would not recommend this place and I would not return.
