Thanks guys! Went to both. Cherry was the one I returned to afterwards. It moved recently (<5 years). & the location is superior. Its a happening time in Tvaria now, & Cherry was at the center of things. Food was probably better too IMHO, but maybe because at C-Cafe I tried to eat Pasta for breakfast.

don't ask! I wasn't paying... But we stayed in the Galei Kinneret for $240/night. No hangers in the room, no late checkout, no desk in the room, nothing in the mini bar. Horrible attiude.
The hotel waterfront is amazing with hammocks etc., and we had a great time!
