This restaurant is a really good spot for breakfast - they have got some good coffee, a lot of delicious pastries & bagels, and several shakshukas to choose from (they were not the best we have had, but pretty good).

Just 10 mins outside the Old City and easy to walk to. It has an excellent bakery, also making sandwiches and wraps with fresh ingredients each day. We ate here on numerous occasions and always enjoyed the food and the attentive service. The prices are...More
