The owners Barry, Nadine, and Kobi opened the restaurant in 1992 to provide an eatery for the city's vegetarians. The result is a popular, canteen-style restaurant along the busy Jaffa Street that provides wholesome food made from fresh, natural ingredients. The Village Green draws an eclectic crowd which includes religious Jews (its menu is Mehadrin Kosher), healthy eaters, students (who want a cheap, chock-full of vitamins feed), and tourists. The menu includes hot dishes of the day, such as vegetable and seaweed pie, sweet potato quiche, and spinach lasagna. The cream of butternut soup comes highly recommended and Salad is 5 NIS per 100 grams. Chilled water is free, as is the delicious homebaked, whole wheat bread. There is a good range of desserts and herbal teas.
This restaurant gets the coveted 5 happy faces :):):):):)
from our family. The food is wonderful, the service terrific & the whole atmosphere is one which makes every diner feel like family. Even the driver who delivers for them (on those odd occasions one does not want to walk through the streets of Yerushalayim to get to this lovely dairy/vegetarian restaurant), Asher, makes you feel good.
Eat there with peace of mind. Don't rush. Just enjoy!

This place is blessed. It welcomes you through its calm clean bright warm functional interior design: high ceilings, lots of natural light, wood, acoustics...I don't know what they did for acoustics but somehow here you don't have to shout to communicate with your company. The choices of food are natural, hearty and
and mouthwatering: Dairy pies on whole wheat crusts with an variety of vegies, stuffed veggies with various whole grains, pizza pies with/out cheese. An array of fresh seasonal raw vegetables for making your own salads seasoned with your choice of oils and vinegars or ready dressings. Then the cooked veggies: steamed, sauteed, braised, baked, grilled... yum! plus toffu, tempe, rices and beans galore, and always the delicious gamasio and the home made breads and butter on the house. How can you not like Village Green? Oh! I cant belive Iforgot to mention deserts. Home made cakes and fruit pies, fruit salads, are simply irresistable and healthy. Here you can find the freshest produce and grains fashioned into such a clean fresh, appetizing and satisfying meal to inspire you, to make you want to Thank Your Creator for the amazing variety of tastes and pleasures He Showers Us with Every day and the people behind this who are courteous, friendly, helpful and smartly good.
I eat here more than any other place in Jerusalem!

Village Green is one of the friendliest, cleanest, and all-around best places to eat in Jerusalem! What's not to like? Their selection of soups is more than most places (usually 5 or 6 different kinds), & in the summer, they have 2 delicious cold soups. Their muffins are a real treat in the morning with coffee. This is the only place that I know of in the city where I can get lowfat milk in my coffee.
The salad bar items are always very fresh, with foods not normally offered elsewhere, like red cabbage or a wonderful avocado-garlic concoction. The hot foods are hearty & delicious, satisfying my non-vegetarian college-aged sons.
My absolute favorite at Village Green is their breakfast. For NIS 35 (about $8.20), you get a properly prepared omelette of your choice (I especially recommend it with mushrooms, onion, & a bit of cheese), a tall glass of fresh-squeezed orange or red grapefruit juice, a tasty salad, two large wheat rolls with jam, & a coffee.
The staff is very friendly & eager to please. English & French are spoken in addition to Hebrew. This is a very popular spot, so if you don't want to wait in line, try to avoid the heavy lunch crowd. But even if you do wait, it will definitely be worth it!
