    I wanted to get here for ages. We came early in the morning on Friday from Tel Aviv, line was long but bearable. Everything looks super pretty on the pictures, but unfortunately, nothing was special or even tasty. For example, croissant with halva and chocolate, was so small and DRY, with almost no filling inside, just few chocolate chips, that supposed to be melted but were hard like stone. The croissant wasn't good as well, didn't play on out taste buds. We also ordered a pastry with strawberries and cream pattisier(okeish) and savory croissant (best out of all). We took one cake home, with cheese and crumble. I would definitely recommend it, very good. So, overall the experience was upsetting. My husband and I are hunters for bakeries, so we can compare. Maybe it was just an unlucky day, but place with such name is not supposed to have these days.

    I felt like the place was very overrated. Because it's an iconic Cafe, they allow themselves to be ridiculously expensive and there's always a massive line of people waiting to sit or even to just order take-away. The price for 2 large coffees, a croissant and a small pecan mousee was almost 100 shekel which is more than double the cost from any other cafe around. The desserts were good, but I didn't find them particularly different from any other respected Cafe.

    Arrived around 10AM on Friday and the place was super busy so had to get in line. My number was 26 so I decided to take a stroll around the area and see some shops and other stuff (which turned out to be a good decision since it took a whole hour and 15 minutes to get our table). After the waiting was over and finally sat down, everything turned out for the best. There’s quite a big variety of breakfast options on the menu so you can find anything g from the classical breakfast, croissants, salads, toasts and more. We took two dishes with some fresh juice and it was very good and fresh. Later we decided that there’s no way we don’t try something sweet and here I implore you to go inside and see what catches your eyes (for me it was almost everything) and get some recommendations from the staff. Everything was delicious and so good that we already decided to come back again ASAP. Some tips: Try to come early in the morning and be prepared to queue up. The good thing is that they work with an app that shows you your turn in line live. Take a stroll around (get water as it’s hot), see some shops and boutiques and random artists and musicians. Be patient with the waitresses as they are under huge pressure and it can be seen they lack some more employees (we had to wait about 10 minutes for someone to take our order and then another 10 for the bill). Overall I remember the good experience, amazing food and yummy sweets.

    Expensive but tasty. The food was quite good but it was around 20 euros for a plate of pasta at lunch. Tap water was offered. Service was a bit cold but efficient. Decoration is good and has a great vibe.

    Great local hangout, very French style patisserie with not only amazing croissants and other sweet indulgences but also a full menu with Mediterranean dishes and egg breakfasts. Highly recommend the Croque madame followed by a pain chocolate!

    It's been a while since I wanted to try out this place but it was always packed and I don't like to order ahead of time. This time I was in the area early around 8:30 so I was able to sit outside. Service was nice but a bit slow.. Breakfast was tasty but not wow as I thought it'd be😅 idk if I'll make an effort to come here.maybe at night it's different. A bit more details - there's sitting area inside and outside. When you wanna add something to ur dish the option costs extra. And on top of that you pay more money on the addition itself. The location is close to the city hall and the railway but there's no view to this road.. (see in picture)

    We have ordered croque madame and "alim" with cheeses. The dishes were super duper small and were just ok. The prices here are disconnected to the value you get, quantity and quality wise. The line is the longest I've stood in for quite a while so I guess my opinion is the minority. But if you don't want to be hungry after spending over 200 nis then skip this place or be disappointed. btw their coffee and pastries are super expensive as well.

    Cafe Kadosh is a landmark coffee shop in Jerusalem opened by Meir Kadosh and has been in business since 1967. Today The café is owned and managed by Meir Kadosh’s son Isack and Isack’s wife, Keren Kadosh. Everything made at Café Kadosh is made in the restaurant kitchen from the breads to the pastas and pastries. The pastries are not only beautiful but they taste unbelievable. The gnocchi I ordered was the best gnocchi I ever had, so light, fluffy and flavorful. It was hard to choose which pastry to order since they all look delectable. I had the pleasure of meeting the owner Isack Kadosh who was so pleasant and approachable. I thanked him for running such an excellent business and he said “for me it’s not work when I love what I do”. I hope he continues loving his work for many more years to come so we can all continue enjoying Cafe Kadosh’s amazing food. For more on restaurants and food follow me on Instagram @dining_withdina

    If you would like to feel like a groupy on stand in a line longer that the one at Disneyland this is the place for you. The pastry is fine, but it is not worth the wait. It feels like the staff enjoy seeing such a long line. The could easily add a separate selling area for takeaways, not the choose not to.

    Amazing pastisserie shop with so much care on the small details. We arrived on Friday morning and we knew it would be a bit crowded so we registered and waited while we talked in Jaffo st. till we received an SMS that our table is ready. We ordered three amazing deserts, I can't remember what they called but there were so delicious! Service is top notch! Waitresses are very polite and informative. The place is very clean, we seat out side the breeze was good. We fore sure will return to Kadosh Pastisserie again! Great job to all staffs and chefs! ❤️

    A joke, 19 ils for a regular croissant, 42 for an individual lemon pie. Where are we ? They are good but for this price it's not transcendental. It's even more expensive than in Tel Aviv ! Unbelievable

    We didn't rely on Google and just wandered the streets, finding this cool cafe that seems really popular! The pastries looks awesome, though we didn't try them, we had lunch and it was great, though didn't know that it was mostly a vegetarian menu, loads of cheese but still pretty good!

    We came early on a Thursday night, and were seated outside. Great atmosphere - lots of helpful and attentive staff, and the food is beyond delightful. They’re pastries are on a whole different level that any other bakery - and their fresh homemade pasta was such a treat. We tried a few of the dishes, and loved them all - there are only good options here. Breakfast served all day, too! :)

    Great breakfast cafe. Almond croissant and lemon/pistachio/raspberry tart are delicious!

    Very expensive cakes (one piece was 45 shekels). The one I tried was good, but not wow, I definitely ate better cakes in other places

  • 5/5 iris w. 1 year ago on Google
    Fabulous place, I come here every time i am visiting Jerusalem. i love the old fashioned decor and atmosphere, and the food is glorious. It is not the cheapest, but more than worth it. The pasta dishes are to dive in 😍, and the desserts/sweet dishes addictive !!! I prefer coming in the evenings, since it is a little calmer,but whatever time, GO ! You will not regret it !!!

    The absolut best pastry / cakes / breakfast and overall dining. A culinary landmark in Jerusalem! A must visit. GUY SAYS GO FOR IT!

  • 5/5 Dan A. 1 year ago on Google
    Came for coffee and desserts in with a few friends visiting from abroad, and it was a pleasure! Atmosphere - great! Service & Recommendations - spot on! Desserts themselves - delicious! I forget what we had, but whatever the beautiful young waitress said - without a moment's hesitation - was the #1 & #2 best choices were absolutely excellent. If you're looking for a fun place to have some special sweet - it's right here

  • 3/5 A S. 1 year ago on Google
    Really nice kosher cafe. (Tzohar supervison) I got the tortellini, homemade pasta it was really really good! The pastries are beautiful though I didn’t try them. Recommend to go at night to beat the crowds. Tried to go here a few times during lunch time and there was a long wait, at night there was no wait at all. Very great place Edit: second time here was not so good so I changed my rating. The bruschetta wasn’t very good and the salad was just plain lettuce with nothing, not even a dressing.

  • 5/5 Yahel B. 1 year ago on Google
    It's a lovely place, the Cafe is in a french fashion, with a bit of Israeli influence. The outcome of this combination is a very special and unique menu. The food itself is fantastic - every dish is delicious and well made. I recommend ordering a salad as an appetizer and do not skip the dessert! Choose the dessert by hunch, don't over think it.

  • 5/5 Eric L. 1 year ago on Google
    This place is so, so good. My server was incredibly kind and patient with me. I asked for a recommendation, and she said the tortellini. I absolutely loved it. I grabbed an almond croissant to go. Best croissant I’ve ever had! Mind blown. The atmosphere is fantastic as well. Highly recommend this place!

  • 5/5 Matthias H. 2 years ago on Google
    So wonderful for breakfast! The crunchy smoked salmon is a favorite, and of course the pastries, coffee and fresh juices are amazing. I also like their version of salad niçoise with smoked tuna for dinner.

  • 2/5 Michelle F. 2 years ago on Google
    Expensive prices for a pitifully small breakfast. The cheese filled pastry with poached eggs on top was very good but when I asked for the salad that comes with all the other dishes (for some reason my dish came with a different salad than all the others and the menu did not specify the ingredients), the waitress said she would ask and never returned about it. This is after waiting 15 minutes to order and never receiving the glass of water I asked for, with the order. When I told about this to the waiter and then to the manager, I received very bland responses. I will definitely not be returning here!

    The bakery is nice, but even the take away line is so long, It's just not worth yout time.

  • 4/5 Rom A. 2 years ago on Google
    Been there for breakfast, everything was tasty, good selection of desserts, service was quick and efficient. The place is small, but extremely popular- sometimes lines with 2 hr wait, including take away, to avoid it try to come before 9am. High, but reasonable prices.

  • 3/5 Kim B. 2 years ago on Google
    The place was crowded and full, estimated waiting time for a table is 2 hours, So we had to TA pasteries. Prices were expensive and pasteries were delicious. It is definitely a one time visit only.

  • 4/5 Eliran S. 2 years ago on Google
    Amazing baked items that worth try most of them. The place is fully occupied during the morning hours, and reservations are needed here. You can get your coffee and bake as a takeaway and try to seat nearby and enjoy this quality time and good coffee.
