This is my go-to place for non-dairy pastries. I cannot eat any dairy and am in heaven when I go here. The chocolate croissants, chocolate and hazelnut croissants and apple strudels are all excellent. They also make very good pretzels.

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).

After getting up early and walking from our hotel to the Old City of Jerusalem my family and I got pretty hungry for breakfast. Not far from the Jaffa Gate, inside the Old City, we enter this bakery shop/café and had some of the freshest,...More
