Located on the edge of the Christian Quarter, this spotless, pleasantly decorated place, set in an ancient structure, is a good choice for a tranquil break while exploring the bazaars. The menu is wide-ranging. You can order a fresh omelet, pasta, spicy chicken wings, an assortment of Middle Eastern salads, chicken breast stuffed with feta and herbs, or the highly recommended California/Arabic-style wraps and sandwiches. Great espresso is served, as are local treats, such as karabij halab (a crunchy biscuit with marshmallow cream made by the owner’s family) or freshly squeezed tangerine juice. There’s a wine and beer list, a bonus in the Old City. Major credit cards are accepted.
