I was in High School when these guys set up and they're still in business, and I still come back. Just visit this restaurant. This restaurant has been in Kerikeri for soooooo long it'd actually be rude not to. Quaint location in the middle of town; great for dates, a casual pita, lunch, dinner, or an outing with the fambams.... More

It was such a pleasure stumbling across this down a cute stone paved lane. This would be my favourite place in Northland to eat... so far. The food is ALWAYS fresh, the taste is exotic but not overbearing and SUCH good value for money. Honestly. The portion sizes are generous, and exciting. Theres a lot going on but not so... More

Everything made fresh when you order. Salads and dinners are quite large. If you want less they have starters and pitas.

Don't under- estimate this cafe as it doubles as a restaurant and the food is excellent. Not a large number of tables so book early and the front of house staff are friendly and knowledgeable.

Kebabs were delicious. Price a little high for the portion size but I will definitely be returning to try the platters.

Stumbled across the Cafe Jerusalem food van at a market and thoroughly enjoyed a late breakfast of a pita wrap. The food was so good the hubby and I decided to take a detour on our road trip to Kerikeri to have lunch at the restaurant. We ordered the mezze platter for 2 and everything was delicious. Was a delight... More

Great food and location but unfortunate service with a sour,unfriendly person.Some good vegetarian options but I was not able to have my usual combo as the serving person disagreed with me and could not give me my request.Disappointing as this has always been a favourite lunch spot.
