I stumbled into this place to ask for directions to the nearest ATM. I left ~45 minutes later - after having a delicious coffee and fascinating conversation with the staff and a few regular customers. Highly recommend a visit.

If you want to access a wide selection of books on Israel/Palestine this is the shop for you. There are many books which will help you get a wider understanding of the political situation there. Be warned books in Israel/Palestine at expensive by British standards.
