After enjoying a tour of the "real Nazareth" of today our Pilgrimage Group enjoyed lunch at Liwan. Very enjoyable Palestinian meal and a very warm welcome. Cannot recommend it highly enough.

Between the ancient alleys and the lively market lies this small, charming coffee place, with a welcoming warm, young and unique atmosphere, excellent coffee, delicious cakes and superb hospitality.

This coffee shop, and café is in the old part of Nazareth. The welcome is wonderful and warm in the coldest of circumstances. The food, ambience and coffee are really good. Can't wait to go back there.

If you want quality Palestinian cuisine, this place has it. And they can tell you about the ways that Palestinians in Nazareth are struggling to create economic opportunities. Highly recommended.

What a beautiful and fresh feel you get when visiting the Liwan in the old city of Nazareth. Welcoming, friendly, informative, and heritage focused. Thanks to all who served and welcomed us during our visit last month.
