We were told by locals that this was a must-do. The place is a hole in the wall and is jam packed! The staff were all wearing Peace tshirts and were putting on quite the performance selling up a storm. We bought an assortment of baklava and some cookies. They threw in tons of freebies including one of the best... More

First we went to the bakery and got some lovely fresh Arab bread and a bit of bakhlava (very seeet and sticky with sugar and fat, not delicate). Then we crossed the street and saw the inviting restaurant. Decided to have lunch there. Service was fast and efficient, sometimes friendly, sometimes with a touch of arrogance.

Apparently this place has been open almost 150 years. The breakfast sandwich and pastries are super good. Lastly try the cheesecake! It is amazing! Definitely a must visit while in Tel Aviv
