Here's an American aliya story: An American psychologist and her physicist husband have opened a cafe restaurant in Jerusalem. What could be more 21st century than that?

Nina's Bagel Cafe is a charming American-style dairy restaurant/cafe in the Ramat Eshkol shopping center. Nina brings her California mind-set to this new venture. She has created a nice place to sit, with American coffee-shop foods, American style service and American music.

"There are other cafes in the Ramat Eshkol center, but they are more like bakeries. Our goal is to offer a cafe that is a nice place to sit." So says Nina Green, an American Olah from California, who has opened a Cafe/Restaurant in the Ramat Eshkol shopping center.

See the new multicolored menu.

Nina's menu offers a delightful selection of foods not often found in Israeli Batei Cafe. The menu offers bagel sandwiches, salads with different dressings, soup, munchies, cold and hot beverages, and desserts. The menu is constantly expanding and it now includes belgian waffles, pastas, quiches, and a selection of deliciously prepared fish each week (such as broiled salmon with mango salsa, salmon in sweet ginger sauce, etc..), pasta (fettucini alfredo, pesto-feta fettucini), lasagna, quiches, low-fat muffins, and much more.

What's so California about Nina's?
The cafe offers all the yummie creamy goodies that you would expect to find in a cafe, but there are also fat-free and sugar-free foods. Breakfast is available all day, and Nina will be starting an early-bird special for the early morning breakfast crowd.

Then there are the bagels. You can have a bagel sandwich at the table or you can take home a dozen. Enjoy a bagel specialty like a New Yorker, with lox and cream cheese, or the Italian special, with Mozarella cheese. The menu also has a section called Munchies, including the munchie "Nachos Grande" which is a mound of tortilla chips with melted cheese, guacamole (in season) salsa and sour cream.

You don't have to buy frozen yogurt at a stand and eat it on the run. Have a seat at Nina's and order it from the menu. And there are lots of great drinks, including steamed milk that you can have flavored with cinnamon, chocolate, and other creative flavors. The drinks are great with a delicious dessert, that come from a popular American food supplier in Jerusalem.

There is both indoor and outdoor seating, and seating at the bar. Take your choice. Stop in at Nina's Bagel Cafe and enjoy a little piece of California in Ramat Eshkol.

Delivery is now available free for orders of 150 NIS or more. NIS 20 for delivery for smaller orders in areas near Ramot Eshkol. The restaurant does catering on and off site.
