This small restaurant (3 outdoor tables seating 2-3 each) is in the center place of Safed. It is run by an American lady, so no language issues. The menu is limited but great for us vegetarians. Even a stir fry with rice could be had, or Quinoa. It is not at all the typical Israeli affair. Quesadilla was without cheese... More

We arrived there after reading all the review and expected some nice vegan/ vegetarian food. Well the food is super simple, my husband dish, the asian stir fry was tasting of soy sauce only and some of the veggies were still frozen, had to ask the waitress to warm it again. The pizza for my daughter was a joke. It... More

Two of us ate at ToL. Most all of the seating is outdoors in a square (kidar), surrounded by three fast-food establishments. Have no illusions, ToL is not a fast-food place even though it is not a fast-food restaurant. One young lady took our orders, prepared the food, took our cash and presumably washed the pile of dishes in the... More

Located on a square in the Artist's Quarter of the Old City, this little cafe was staffed by one hard-working young woman, who acted as waitress, cook and dishwasher. When there is more than one table filled (there were, when we ate there), service can be understandably slow. But the young woman didn't get harried. The food was quite good... More

What a great culinary experience! So many delicious choices for vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free food in Safed. The quesadillas, homemade veggie burgers, and stir fry with tofu and brown rice were incredibly delicious. We enjoyed every bite of our meal and can't wait to come back and try some more of their wonderful dishes.

The meal was delicious but I agree with previous comments that too expensive. I warmly recommend larger portions for the existing prices or lower prices for the existing portions, I am sure business will blossom because it's centrally located, appears to be a family-run business with lots of kindness and good intentions. The food really is delicious and wholesome. Will... More

On a hot August day, we enjoyed DELICIOUS vegan smoothies. Many choices of fruit and vegetables. Soy milk available as a base, as well as yogurt, milk, and apple juice. Prices are reasonable: 20 NIS for a large fruit shake; 24 NIS for a large milk/soy shake. The service was excellent: very friendly and attentive. We highly recommend Tree of... More

Wandering through the Old City, gets exhausting up & down, nutritious green smoothie was the perfect refueling drink while satisfying hunger pangs, topped by a chewy date based cookie, allowed us to continue our hiking

Great food and friendly owner! Nice place to get some more american tasting food, like quesadillas. It was expensive for the amount of food, though, and also isn't a great place to eat if you're in a rush.
