Cafe Nadi

Kosher (Rabanut, not Mehadrin. )

Easily the best breakfast in Jerusalem, Cafe Nadi really stepped it up with their new location! Now on Hillel St., Nadi has the feel of a trendy coffee shop on the Upper West Side with the menu of your classic Israeli dairy cafe- only better.

With dishes ranging from about 40 shekel to 64 shekel, it is comparable to most nice dairy cafes in Jerusalem. They offer gluten free bread, lots of vegan options, and the perfect ambiance for anything from a business meeting to brunch with your Bubby. (or even a break-up, I did that once.)

What to order?

Their green shakshuka is easily my favorite in all of Israel. It is light, with crispy greens that become the perfect crust for poached eggs and massive amounts of feta. 

Last time I visited, I split the Sadan for two with my grandma. It was her favorite thing she ate in all of Israel. It comes with dozens of spreads, yogurt, salad, fish, an egg dish of your choice, bread, a hot drink and a cold drink! All that for just 159 shekel total. 

We upgraded the eggs for like 25 shekel to the green shakshuka and it was a POWER MOVE. (Though they only serve breakfast until 13:00, this dish is available all day!)
