Jerusalem Travel Tips

Jerusalem is truly a most wondrous city to visit, and Ben Yehuda is no longer the "place to be". Try Emek Refaim Street for a wide selection of restaurants from "Aroma" coffee bar to some more up market fancy establishments. Best deal for Summer 2011 - "Tufinei" - breakfast for 25 shekels per person on a cosy and shaded veranda that runs alongside the restaurant.
Opposite the Dan Boutique on Hebron Road ( in the old train station area ) is a blooming restaurant area, with a selection of buzzing restaurants, some open on Shabbat. We recommend "The back-yard" which has an outdoor bar and a large grassed garden just like an English pub!
The recently opened Mamilla Alrov shopping complex adds a new dimension to shopping in Jerusalem. A brand new outdoor ( for now ) shopping parade with luxury shops stretches from the bottom of Jaffa Road to the Jaffa Gate. In addition to the wide variety of shops, there are also several restaurants. Our favorite is "Cafe Cafe" that has an excellent value breakfast for couples, with omelettes, salads, avocado, tuna, cheeses and hot and cold drinks. "Roladin" is an excellent pastry and light food restaurant. "Rimon" caters to the more religious crowd with Glatt kosher food and finally there is "Aroma", with excellent value sandwiches, salads and coffee. A new branch of the GREG chain has recently opened.
A new restaurant! has opened by the swimming pool in the Givat Ram University Campus. The restaurant is named "HAIVRIT", and is highly recommended because of the warm ambience created by an outside wooden decked veranda, and a cozy interior together with a varied and most reasonably priced menu that includes salads, sandwiches, toasts, quiches, pastas, fish and more. The restaurant is ideal for sportsmen using the adjacent athletic track and swimming pool. The complex is located opposite the science museum and has plenty of parking.

The NEW HaIvrit Restaurant

The NEW HaIvrit Restaurant

Jan 2009 - The most scenic new restaurant! has opened up in the Botanical Gardens in Jerusalem. The restaurant  - KAFFIT - has opened a new branch ( in addition to the branch on Emek Refaim street ) by the large lake in the Botanical Gardens. Parking is free, and can be accessed via the gas station on Herzog Street. The restaurant's location is perhaps the beautiful in Jerusalem!
