Owners Yanki and Shmulik named their cafe after the character in the Rocky Horror Show. Apart from being a very comfortable place to hang out (newspapers to read, an internet, a games machine and backgammon sets), it is open round the clock – seven days a week, 24 hours a day. Is open to gay clients and serves bacon. The clientele varies with the hours, but it's an anything goes place frequented by Israeli teens, European travellers after a bacon and eggs breakfast and drag queens. There is a large bar and 29 different sandwiches are available on either brown or white ciabatta. Fillings include BLT, goose breast, halloumi cheese and avocado to name a few. Credit cards only accepted for purchases above NIS 25 and the average cost of a meal is NIS 40.
This small cafe was the only thing open on Shabbat, our last day in Jerusalem. We were on our way to the Old City and we were hungry. What a treat! Definitely non-Kosher (Kosher food is great, but so was this. :-) My wife had a ham and cheese sandwich that was exquisite, and my roquefort and walnut ciabatta was fantastic. Her favorite part of the meal was the milkshake -- it tasted just like a 3 Musketeers bar and was easily the best shake we'd ever had in our lives. Riff Raff is a must!
