Food and Views. What else can you ask for? Climbing to the roof allows you excellent views within the Old City. The coffee and cake at the cafe was real nice afterwards.

Their apple cider (non-alcoholic) is highly recommended, especially in the winter. The hospice has beautiful views of the Old City and seems like a very friendly environment to... More
