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.

Not just a very dirty place but bad service. Also, the food wasn't that yummy. Please go and find other places around! The waitress charged more food than it was.. Bad experience!
