Any idea about the hechsher at Cafe Cafe? And how far is it from the beaches and/or Ein Gedi?

Unless you were hoping I could make out what the Teudah says from the pics on their site, that link didn't help find out about its kashrus. But thanks for the coupon!
Map didn't get an exact location of the restaurant, but it seems like it's 1/2 hour drive from Ein Gedi, which means I might as well go back to Yerushalayim for food. Thanks

Ein gedi is about 20-30 min from the dead sea, jerusalem is at least an hour, plus dont you want to see the dead sea at all?

Supposed to be a decent hechsher. It's about a 45 min walk and 4 minute drive from the le meridian.

I guess I assumed Ein Gedi was closer. From my trip there in Yeshiva it felt like a 5 minute drive, but obviously I wasn't paying attention.
So hike in the morning, lunch at Cafe Cafe, afternoon at the beach?

Suggestions for getting 5 adults from Yerushalayim to Ein Gedi and from Dead Sea back to Yerushalayim?

Thanks, still want to verify that.

Renting a car will be much cheaper. PM Hocker. He has great rates.

Dont believe you have to book in advance. Not sure about which path is the best.

No need to book, it's a national park.
When you get there, you'll pay an entrance fee and receive a map, you can decide what to do based on the weather,  time, and difficulty factor.
