Jerusalem is a vibrant city filled with people from all different cultures, so it’s no surprise that this would inevitably shape a fantastic culinary culture. But it’s not all about the savory delights. You’ll find the city’s most decadent treats at these bakeries and dessert shops.
After serving three generations of happy customers, Magdaniat Pe’er stands as Jerusalem’s oldest bakery. It is most famous for its age-old challah recipe, but it also offers a variety of cakes, cookies, pastries, and danishes. Luckily, this bakery has two locations within central Jerusalem: one in Mahane Yehuda Market and the other in the German Colony.
