    The Los Angeles kosher community can use a really good dairy restaurant as there’s a shortage of dairy eateries. Any investors interested?

    Sounds incredible

    Please bring some of this amazingness to LA! Sorely lacking and something like Basil or Zak or would be so successful! Crown Heights has enough.

    I’m a shliach in a small town in USA I am so hungry, but there are no restaurantS around. So I took a bite at the burger place below the Chinese place, and now I just helped myself to some dessert at the new place on top…Please would any of these places deliver?
    Thank You…

    I’ve been to many KMR programs and the Werners pay attention to every detail. Udi Ezra makes the best gelato in the kosher world and I’m sure it’s comparable to a NYC gelato place. He makes amazing pastries and desserts. Very excited to try the place. The Werners and Udi are some of the nicest people there are so I wish them all the hatzlacha.

    Bringing heaven down to earth in Jerusalem

    we have an upscale ice cream parlour in Machane Yehuda Shuk in Jerusalem–Rose Petal Ice Cream, Saffron, Pomegranate and Cocoa/Mandarin ice and more. done very well and not over the top. after you eat it, one doesn’t feel sick, but nicely satiated. And at another store all kinds of halvah, you wouldn’t believe. it’s a win-win situation. you are home, supporting Israel. Further by being here and eating these delights it’s like bringing heaven down to earth

    I’ve had his cheesecakes before and they are amazing, I’m still dreaming about the dulce de leche one! He definitely makes the best ice creams out there. For a place at the Werner and this chefs level in CH, this is big. Can’t wait.

    How very exciting is it to hear about a classy venue for a breakfast or for a good cappuccino opening in CH; definitely something we’ve been missing for a while.

    Looking forward to patronizing you!

    He makes the best kosher gelato and desserts out there. Tried all the big dairy and Parve places and he’s on a whole other level. Also makes the best Cholov Yisroel croissants and scones, I used to get them all the time when he was at Basil, I really missed them. He was the one who first made basil ice cream!

    Wow

    such good news re the corn bread

    such good news re the corn bread

    Yes the ice cream sounds excellent, delicious, superior – and as healthy as you can get…but what caught my eye as a wheat-free person was the corn bread! thanks so much. It’s frustrating in so many kosher places to find no substitute for the wheat bread. So wonderful that there will be corn bread available. I can’t wait for my next visit to Crown Heights. Hatzlocha Rabo Werners!

    Sugar

    Hey, all that’s missing in Crown Heights is a little more SUGAR!!!
    Hope there will be some gourme foods made naturally without natural sugar!!!!

    agree with 24
    Guest
    agree with 24

    We need some high quality food without sugar. A place like that would not only be very successful but will be doing a huge favor for the health of the community. Food does not have to have sugar for it to be top quality and tasty. Sugar is poisoning the population and is the cause of many health problems

    Healthy?
    Guest
    Healthy?

    Seriously? So don’t eat there! Going out to eat doesn’t mean every meal, it’s moderation. I feel sorry for you that you deprive yourself of treats sometimes. Look at the French they eat whole fat dairy and drink wine, and cheeses and eat pastries and aren’t fat. Everything in moderation. You want healthy food eat at home, some people want to enjoy and have an ice cream once in a while, at least with this cafe it’ll be worth it bc it’ll be the best ice cream.

    Whatever Hashgacha they take will be the best because I’ve worked with KMR and Udi and these guys take kashrut very seriously, very profesional, and are very careful, clean, and machmere. Stand up guys.

    Waiting anxiously
