An emporio-restaurant chain is opening in Jerusalem on July 11.
It will be named after the ancient city, where the word for dessert comes from, as the owner, Hana, said.
Dessert Emporium is the brainchild of Hana.
It will be the first emporia in the country to be built from scratch with the help of local partners, she said.
The emporion will be open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m., seven days a week.
It has been set up in a converted old Jewish synagogue in the heart of Jerusalem’s Old City, which will be converted into a bar.
The shop will feature empanada-making stations, and will be stocked with dessert-making equipment, including wooden cones, wooden utensils, bowls and spoons, Hanyan said.
A dessert emporie is a small-scale restaurant that serves only one type of food.
It was founded by a group of Israeli artists and businessmen in 2013, and has since grown to include a restaurant and catering business.
