Restaurants in Jerusalem
The best view and best Sacher torte are on top of the Austrian Hospice, tucked away in the Old City.
The coffee house is owned by a pair of Chicago-born cousins, Debbie Katz and Rosie Nathan. The walls of the tiny outpost, which sells coffee and tea from all over the world, are blanketed with covers from The New Yorker.
For lunch, order a chopped salad with feta, peppers, onions, and olives and a side of house-made hummus.
Everything is anchored around a taboon (stone oven). Try the baked breads and whole fish. The veranda here overlooks the Mediterranean and the West Bank's Judean Hills.
