NileGuide Expert tip:
Try to get a patio seat at the Mamilla Mall branch--fabulous view of the Old City.
Any Jerusalemite will tell you about Cafe Rimon. The family-style cafe that has separate meat and milk sections at the same location has been in business since the early 1950s, offering up a solid selection of tasty meals in pleasant surroundings near the Ben Yehuda pedestrian mall.
An upscale branch of Rimon operates in the Mamilla Mall, but the Luntz Street branch maintains the feel of a traditional Jerusalem cafe. Now strictly kosher, the clientele often includes young orthodox couples on a date as well as groups of tourists out on the town. Healthy portions, good milkshakes and desserts make this one a winner if you're in the downtown area. A favorite with the young, ultra-orthodox set.
