Coffee Bean

Rates: 15 min: 6 NIS, 30 min: 8 NIS, 45 min: 10 NIS, 1 hr: 12 NIS

Coffee Bean offers its customers free wireless internet access. Just make sure when you've connected to your wireless connection that you go to www.google.com and then click "I accept" on the Bezek screen that appears.

Coffee Bean has many tables with plenty of space between them (so it feels like you’re in an actual American café), but it fills up fast, especially on Thursday nights and Motzei Shabbos.

A word about the Coffee Bean "scene": Coffee Bean is a popular hang out with the American seminary and yeshiva crowd. Don’t go on a date there unless you want everyone you know to know about it.

NOTE: Although this access is usually good, it tends to cut out from time to time. It's not your computer - it's Coffee Bean's internet access.
