Comfortable place to wile away an afternoon with a delicious latte. Outdoor seating reminiscent of cafes in Paris.

Stopped for evening coffee. First, service was not very friendly, not rude, but close to it. My wife did not like her mint tea at all, tasted off to her. Coffee with soya was okay, but nit as it once was.

After some disappointing visits to other places in the area we came across Cafe Hillel and the young girl actually smiled and welcomed us. That is special in Jerusalem! Coffees etc were OK but service inside was only average.
