An unassuming hidden treasure

I've wanted to try this place for a while, but due to their very limited open hours, I only recently found myself in the right place at the right time. After struggling a few minutes to even find it, my family and I were welcomed into the tiny (and a bit uncomfortable) space by the friendly staff who outnumbered the clientele. Not everything on the menu was available, but we understood that as an informal community center and activist hangout, they're not trying to be a full-fledged restaurant. The service was bumpy and confused at times, but eventually the sandwiches, soup and salads arrived and we were pleasantly surprised - very yummy! What they lack in formality, they make up in attentiveness and taste. And the prices are unbelievably low. This probably isn't the most convenient eatery in town, but I'll definitely be back.

Pros: Very simple, healthy & yummy food, Extremely affordable, Kind & attentive service

Cons: Fairly cramped & uncomfortable seating options, Limited hours as a public cafe

Nice Food / Lovely Conversation

A great place for wholesome and tasty vegan food and intellectual conversation.

I ordered a lentil salad and soup. Both were delicious.

Most interesting space in Jerusalem

First of all, whatever you do - take the smoked tofu, and have a cake.

This is a small co-operative, so all the waiters are the co-owners. it's a safe space for activists in different struggles: animal rights, LGBTQ, and of course against the occupation. There is a political library, many events, and tasty food for very cheap (its a non profit).
So if your looking for a real alternative look at the city, or a place to eat/drink/chill, this is the spot.

Pros: interestign, cheap, chilled

Cons: sometimes the service is a bit slow
