Description: Opened in early 2014 JAVA Café is already creating a buzz. Just steps away from the beach in Central Tel Aviv, complete with wooden architecture, bright colours and lots of greenery, JAVA gives the sense of sitting in a beach house on a tropical island in the Pacific (look closely and you’ll even see monkeys “hanging around”). With its summertime soundtrack, giant beach umbrellas and unique lighting, JAVA promotes a diverse atmosphere. Come on a date, come for a business meeting, come one, come all – bowties, surfboards and sandy feet are all welcome. Friendly wait-staff welcome you to wander in to taste the eclectic menu. Some customers like to pop in for a coffee, a fresh juice, a shake or an Acai-berry breakfast, while others enjoy an original take on Israeli classics like Merguez-sausage Shakshuka or Burekas with fried egg and avocado. The kitchen is open from morning-till-late, offering meals such as Green Cous-cous Salad, Slow-cooked Stews, and if you can’t decide on one item, have a bit of fun with the original concept of “sharing dishes”. “Sharing dishes” are served on specially-designed platters – order 3 mains and pay for 2, order 4 and pay for 3 and so on. JAVA is fully-equipped with high-chairs and sofas, but don’t be fooled – this beach café transforms into a beachy-sheik hangout with a full-bar featuring house-bottled wine named “Cheap”, “Good” and “Great”, all at the lowest prices in Tel Aviv. Passers-by slow to a stop with wide eyes taken in by the décor, aroma and down-right feel-good vibes.

The waitress told us that it is possible to have a gluten free dish but that they use gluten in the kitchen. We took it as a general warning and took the risk. Since my girlfriend is a celliac she reacts very fast and sensitive on even the tiniest amounts of gluten.

But she had no problems after eating her salad.
I ordered the curry and it was very well prepared.

The smoothies are very good and ice cold. Especially on a hot day a necessity.

Worth a visit!

Wonderful fresh bakaries and good coffee. A typical Tel Aviv cafe. Amazing to sit outside in a sunny day. Good service.
