Got the Israeli breakfast, lots of variety and the presentation was great. Delicious! Just remind them to bring your coffee at the end of the meal.

We stumbled across Cafe Yehoshua on the way to our accommodation when we first arrived in Jerusalem. Greeted by a friendly waiter we decided to eat here after taking a quick look at the menu. The whole experience was really enjoyable with great service from the staff and excellent food from the kitchen! The atmosphere is really relaxed and comfortable.... More

I've lived near Cafe Yehushua for almost 4 years and have eaten here very often. As time passes the prices just keep going up but the quality does not. Even though they market themselves as a neighborhood restaurant, they never greet us as though we are familiar and they never offer discounts for neighboring students. The last couple of times...

(just for an example in the last 18 months the minimum wages have increased 3 times.) We don't give student discounts but... More

The place is small and nice. Good Athmosphere, and food is good. However lately change their "welcome" policy. It because they become successful and the place is small they become very nervous with the sitting. We set in free table of 4, half restaurant was empty, the Shift Manager start noting us and demand our attention that we must accept... More

We were there just 2 night ago and everything was almost perfect. The food is extremely good and fresh, the place is clean and the atmosphere is nice, the space between the tables and the chairs are really small which make it hard to go in and out but we made it work. The service stuff is a bit unfriendly,... More

The food in Yehoshua is always good without fail. The produce is of good quality, the staff is professional and kind, and the dishes are delicious. The only low point is the price - some of the dishes are quite small considering the cost, though most dishes are reasonably priced. The fixed lunch menu is a good option, as are... More

Café Yehoshua was in the neighborhood were we were staying. There are several tables outside with most seating inside. Eat here 3 times with all meals being excellent. Food included the new Rueben sandwich and the better Philly steak sandwich with cheddar cheese added. Chicken schnitzel, span cakes, and drinks. The service was friendly and competent. Recommend and will return,... More
