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.

Fast, efficient service, tasty flavours, healthy, variety, cost effective, eat in out takeout. My personal favourite is the lamb swarma. Pick your own toppings and enjoy.

We were happy with the tasty mezze platter for 2, which consisted of 4 main choices, salad, humous, and pitta bread. Staff were very friendly and the food was quite delicious. Definitely worth a visit (or two) if you live or are passing through Kerikeri. I will return!

Good food. We ordered a chicken and a kokta meal. They came out quickly and were good. Hummus was excellent, wished there were more. Pita bread looked store bought. Nice food.

I first visited Café Jerusalem about 15 years ago - and have been an occasional, casual diner whenever passing through or staying in Kerikeri. Having been working in that delightful town for the past six weeks, I reacquainted myself with Café Jerusalem, and was happy that, little had changed.

Had lunch outside here a few weeks ago. Nice courtyard for the good weather. Excellent hummus and tasty flatbreads. Enjoyed a lamb pitta too, good flavours and reasonably priced. A friend told me to try this place and so glad we did! Cool place, good job Cafe Jerusalem
