|Ramallah, West Bank, Palestine Territories|
While the news offers real pictures in real-time about war-torn Palestine note most of the devastation has occurred in the Gaza Strip near the ocean. Palestine territories also include the inland West Bank, where it is peaceful and where La Vie Café is located.
La Vie Café specializes in vegetarian cuisine and has created quite an impressive menu of delectable vegetarian meals. Very few coffee houses in the world are as diversified as La Vie Café. Here you’ll wander into a burger joint, a fine on-premises farm-fresh gardens, restaurant, wine cellar, entertainment stage, rooftop dining, and a full bar that serves fine espresso drinks.
For that in the States, you’d have to visit three or four different places. But since this is a coffee column, the quality of their espresso is especially brilliant, however, they also provide top-quality cakes, pies, burgers, and fresh juices. La Vie Café thinks of itself almost as a farm-cafe; they feature a rooftop organic garden where they grow almost all their produce and harvest their own honey. Their rooftop garden area is open in the summer and is the ideal place to sit and relax in the sun.
Downstairs you’ll find a tapas and cistern wine cellar. Many nights live entertainment is offered. Hours: Brunch daily starting at 10:30 am and a lunch menu from 11 -2 for dine-in only. Dinner is served until midnight. Closed Sundays.
