Sweet outside patio. Had three meals here. Best was a mashed potatoe, mushroom & fried cheese. (Sorry can't remember the name). The little patio street side is lovely.

The very broad menu means that there is something for every age and taste. The portions are huge so you can consider sharing. It gets crowded during regular meal hours.

What a terrific cafe/ restaurant. The atmosphere is buzzing but you can hear yourself think .. it's not over the top. The food comes out fast and the food is always fresh and very tasty. We love the oreganato section.. huge bowls of fresh goodness....More

We wondered over to the German Colony for dinner and decided to try this restaurant. We had the absolute best salads ever. The green Sharshuka was excellent. The wait staff was excellent. It was a crowded evening during Pesach and everything was fantastic!

A very nice place in a lovely botanical garden of Jerusalem. The food is pretty good but the environment is lovely.

I accidentally discovered Caffit a few years ago, and ordered their Foccacina by chance. It's literally one of the best breads I've had in the world, and I travel a lot. Warm, soft, with a delicious sugar glaze and tasty dips. Really amazing. The whole...More

I would say best soup in Jerusalem but I haven't eaten all the soup in Jerusalem yet. There's a wide variety of dairy offerings, and the soups are really terrific. If you are running late on a Friday, these guys wait until the last minute...More

We love the German Colony. It's artsy atmosphere makes it seem a light year from the rest of Jerusalem. We stumbled upon Caffit looking for lunch and we were blessed by our experience. The whole place was buzzing. Our order was promptly prepared and perfect...More
