We found this place open as everything was closing for Sabbath. It was a great find. The pizza was made with fresh ingredients & well made. The con panna coffee was fantastic & the strawberry milkshake & hot chocolate came highly recommended by others at the table. The only downer was the lethargic & almost uninterested wait staff.

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.

My family of four stopped in to Cafe Hillel one morning for breakfast, and we were not disappointed. We were able to sit outside and enjoy a meal of eggs and salatim (salads), breads and pastries. The wait staff was very nice and multi-lingual. I wish we lived closer... I'd be there all the time!

Nice place to hang out at daytime for its outdoor seats. But the cuisine lacks of professional quality and skills. Though staff is friendly but not professional. One waiter spilled oil on a client's clothes and the house did not offer to launder it. Food is edible but nothing to write home about.

Really great food! Fried fish batter was full of sesame seeds and well cooked. Salads and focaccia was also fabulous. Almost too much food! Well priced too. We sat out on the sidewalk and enjoyed the scene.
