Al Amin Sweets & Bakery

Bakery in East Jerusalem

Al Amin Bakery brings Jerusalem together to literally break bread. On any given day Palestinians, Israelis, Ethiopians, Filipinos and tourists of all kinds pass through this Palestinian-owned shop close to Damascus Gate for some signature Jerusalem kaak (circular toasted bread) or baked goods filled with meat, cheese or zaatar (a blend of spices that includes hyssop, sumac and sesame), among other homemade specialities.
