I visited Christ Church Coffeehouse with my family several times during my stay in Jerusalem. It is a remarkable space just across the street from Jaffa gate. The generously-sized desserts are delicious (especially the carrot cake, chocolate cake, and scones), as are the drinks. I recommend the chai latte and the sahlab (a regional drinkable milk pudding with nuts and cinnamon and coconut). The staff - especially Elias, who served us several times - are friendly and hospitable: I felt like a valued guest, not just a customer. The clientele seemed to be both locals and tourists, and it was a very relaxed, friendly atmosphere. Highly recommend as a place to take a break while wandering the Old City. I also recommend the bookstore - they have good postcards and souvenirs.

Stumbled upon this beautiful little cafe while exploring old city in Jerusalem. Very nice service. Ordered coffee and had a sit. Went there again the next day and bought some croissant too, which was also very good! Also tried some local tea drink with cinnamon, do recommend! Also they have soy and almond milk,...

Also they have soy and almond milk, so it is great for vegans as well! :)

While touring different churches at Christmas time, we went to visit the Anglican Christ Church, one of the oldest "modern" (1830's) churches within the walls of the Old City. It is truly a worthwhile stop on any tour of the Old City. Its little museum holds a number of large models of Jerusalem structures/neighborhoods made in the 1870's by Conrad Schick. The church itself is a peaceful place which invites one to relax. There is a garden in which one can rest and order a meal. Inside is a cavernous eatery with a street-side entrance. There is also a guest house. All within high walls shutting out the street noise beyond.
