We’ve been coming here for years and it never, ever, disappoints! Fresh food, well cooked with great service, what is not to love! Try the Levivot, the mezze platter for large groups, and then focus on the baklava and the coffees! But, please make sure...More

This Israeli cafe serves delicious food at a reasonable price. At dinner, I had the lamb shawarma. It came with rice, hummus, tahini sauce, salad, tabbouleh, and pita. The homemade lemonade was lovely.

Simple, delicious and healthy Israeli/middle eastern food in a relaxed setting for a reasonable price and open all year round. It's good to get something good and different in small rural towns in NZ.

Wonderfully fresh, tasty, healthy & delicious with friendly staff. Definitely once a week for me ! Proud to take guests from around the world to Cafe Jerusalem. Lamb shawarma is my favourite but plenty of choices

On the outside there's nothing flashy about this restaurant, but their food is something special and great tasting. And if you order lemonade, it's going to be real lemonade, not Sprite.

Really great food. Thoroughly enjoyed our business lunch. I had the Dukkah Dip and Jerusalem Morav. All lunch items can be served in a pita, as a salad or as a main - which gives you so many options. We also had a glass of...More

The cafe is open 6 days a week and is run by a husband and wife team, they close on Sundays as otherwise they would never have any family time!
