"Don't Pass Me By, Tea and Pie" in Jerusalem
I don't know if this place is still in business, but it was certainly the coziest, most eclectic spot in all of Jerusalem in the early 1990's.
You walked down an alley and up a narrow staircase to a tea room that was cozy and warm. Lots of varieties of tea and hot cider. At least a dozen types of pie. Owned by Argentinian brothers, I think, "Don't Pass Me By" was known for it's quiet music and congenial atmosphere.
It was definitely an out of the ordinary spot for downtown Jerusalem, which is more well known for its Israeli cafe's, pizza shops and ethnic restaurants of all kinds. This little tea shop was a top location for Jerusalem's locals and visitors to converge.
If it's still around, its definitely worth the visit.

Stephanie, this sounds like such a quaint tea room. I love the name, how could anyone not stop in here to investigate. Finding good quality teas and wonderful pies would have me visiting there often.
If anyone knows if "Don't Pass Me By" is still in business, let us know. Our international travelers would love to give this tea room a try. We would like to let readers know the address and any other info that will make finding it helpful.
