While walking in Jaffa street home from long day in Old Town, this is a perfect stop for the last (??) coffee of the day. It was nicely warm inside in the cold evening. Macchiato was good and quality. The girl behind the counter was pleasant and smiling. We will come again. With at least 2 tables inside it would... More

I'm not much of a coffee or tea drinker, but I wanted to buy some quality coffee and tea for my family for my return to the States. The young ladies here were very kind in helping me pick the best from their selection, and I was able to purchase a good amount for a fair price. Highly recommended!

I happened upon You Need Coffee during my hunt for a French press (I'm living in Israel for a few months and forgot to bring mine over from the States) and saw that they had quite the selection. I found the French press I wanted and bought some coffee to test it out, and figured that would be the last... More

So, when passing by i entered "You Need Coffee". Coffee was excellent, and there were a lot of varieties to chose from (tea as well!). Variety of edibles was too limited and not too good (i.e. 3 sweets. however if you need savoury food to complement, there a a few next-door options). Not much room to sit, especially on a... More

When I was in Jerusalem about eighteen months ago, I chanced upon this tiny coffee shop and enjoyed my couple of visits here so much that I sought it out again on my return here this week. It wasn't just that the coffee was so good, it was the lovely atmosphere of care and friendliness which, as a vistor to... More

conveniently located on the way to and back from the Old City, just a hop from the tram stop , this little place offers a cup of strong fresh coffee, the smile of the curly owner and some special cookies to go with your coffee.
