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 for us. We'll be back on our next visit to Jerusalem.

Had dinner in Emek Refaim. We ordered soups which were pretty good. When the bill came the charge was higher than the menu prices. When I complained to hostess, I was told that there was a "special" this week. Needless to say I never heard of a special where the price rises, especially since I did not want the added... More

I recently stayed in the German Colony for a week, and was thrilled to discover Caffit just a couple of blocks away. I first went there for breakfast, with my son and I ordering the "Caffit Breakfast for Two." My first taste of an Israeli breakfast, and it was fantastic. So many little things to try, and we couldn't even... More

For our main dish we had the grilled salmon fillet with potato wedges and green beans. It was an excellent choice. We also had the pasta in a great creamy sauce. We will... More

Caffit is located on Emek Refaim. Has a varied menu. It's a good place for brunch, lunch or a light dinner. You can dine inside or outside.

They offer gluten free bread. You can get salads and fish and just have them take out the croutons. Make sure the waiter double checks what is ok.

This is a very pleasant place to eat and meet friends. But not if you need to wash your hands or use the toilet and find stairs a challenge for whatever reason. What happened to accessibility?

We ate here and loved it! It is a dairy restaurant with awesome dishes. Get ready for huge portions! In addition to the food, you are overlooking the Jerusalem botanical gardens! Overall a great breakfast, lunch or dinner place.
