Imagine a marriage of fresh Middle Eastern cuisine with English sensibilities and you have Grand cafe. Food is fresh and presentation appealing. I had "healthy breakfast" which combined fig tahini with salad and fruit with granola. As in many current Israeli restaurants portions are large. Fresh juices are outstanding.

A Cafe par excellence. Great coffee, fresh juices and wonderful food. A marvellous place to work, ruminate, drown in caffeine, or just talk. It is large with modern architecture and furniture and because of its kosher cuisine it enhances the already great cafe scene in Jerusalem . Bravo Grand Cafe!

The Grand is a great Cafe for indoor or outdoor coffee and cheesecake. On a sunny day it's fabulous to sit outside. The staff are helpful and friendly ( and speak English) and their coffee and cheesecake are really good

The staff are very friendly, easygoing, helpful, the menu is special and the portions are generous. On Friday morning we got there at about 8:30 and it was already so crowded that we had to wait outside. Best to reserve a table in advance!

Staying at the Rafael Residence which abuts the Grand Cafe at 70 Derech Bet Lechem, we often popped in for a coffee and cake or one of their wonderful and creative salads or pasta. The Grand Cafe bustles at all hours, but never more so than on a Friday morning when Israelis are both rushed and relaxed before the onset... More

We have eaten here twice recently. Salads are generous and full of fresh tasty vegetables. I had an excellent potato/leek soup. Fresh fruit juices are a treat. Service is good and the inviting ambience will likely draw us back.

Flavourful dairy and salads. Very popular. Very good coffee drinks. Lunch and dinner reservations are recommended as it is always busy.
