Over the years, I’ve enjoyed meals with friends and family at Café Rimon at Ben Yehuda Street in Jerusalem, Israel. Café Rimon, an iconic name in the Jerusalem dining scene, has a rich history. Located on Luntz Street, just off Ben Yehuda Street, this restaurant is a staple for both locals and tourists.

The original Café Rimon, established in 1953 has evolved into a renowned chain, with additional branches at the Mamilla Mall in Jerusalem and one in Beit Shemesh. Initially a meat-based establishment, Café Rimon transitioned to dairy in 1983, while the Rimon Bistro, opened in 2007, serves as the meat-focused establishment of the chain. Café Rimon has continued to thrive, known for its commitment to quality and inclusivity in employment practices.
