Loved by girls and boys alike, Benedict is a breakfast institution in Tel Aviv.

The freshly baked hot bread fills you with warmth, topped with delicious chocolate spread. Remember to book in advance or be prepared for queues… you are not the only one with the Benedict craving!

Central Tel Aviv | Ahad Ha’Am 91
Bucke has a real neighborhood restaurant feel to it: with friendly waiters, a local clientele, and a simple yet delicious menu. The best definition of the food is ‘Israeli breakfast’ – eggs and salads, fresh juice and warm bread. They have a great sharing plate with loads of little salads, and one of the best shakshukas in Tel Aviv! Read more
Central Tel Aviv | Frishman 54

Dizengoff 197 | Central Tel Aviv
When you sit in Nola (which stands for standing for New Orleans, Louisiana), you feel like you are sitting in a diner in the American South. All the breads, cakes and cookies are freshly baked in their bakery, and the rest of the menu is filled with American treats, complete with hash browns. Read more
South Tel Aviv | Montefiore 36
Hotel Montefiore’s Restaurant serves brasserie cuisine in stylishly elegant surroundings. Unlike many hotel restaurants, the Montefiore’s is an attraction in and of itself: trendy locals and well-to-do business types are among the worldly clientele that flocks here to enjoy lavish breakfasts. Round off your cosmopolitan breakfast with a delicious morning cocktail. Read more

Lehamim is a chain of kosher bakeries across Tel Aviv, with many kinds of breads inspired by bakeries from all over the world! They have amazing cakes, burekas, sandwiches, pies, and cookies. In their sit-down branches (Hashmonaim 103 and Ibn Gvirol 125) they also have one of the best breakfasts in Tel Aviv – order your breakfast tray before they run out, with loads of cheeses, fruits, cakes, smoked salmon and tuna, and of course loads of different kinds of bread!

Neve Tzedek | Shabazi 10
Located in Neve Tzedek, Dallal is a really special place to go for breakfast. The atmosphere is relaxed, the decoration meticulous. Similarly with the food, the choices are simple, but with a delicious gourmet twist. For the summer there is a lovely outdoor patio, and for the hangovers there is an extensive cocktail list. Read more
Central Tel Aviv | Shenkin 33
There’s something refreshing about Orna and Ella. Crisp white table-clothes, very simple décor, hipster waiters, and homemade food. Their breakfasts are simple yet fulfilling, their shakshuka is not huge but definitely delicious, and the dips for the bread are fantastic – they even have a few extra ones if you ask nicely. Read more
Central Tel Aviv | Nakhmani Street 23
The Norman Tel Aviv brunch is like a glimpse into the life of the rich and the famous without breaking the bank. The outdoor seating area is right out of a magazine and you get to enjoy the fresh air and sun while brunching. The brunch includes an extensive buffet of breads, pastries, spreads, mueslis and more, as well as bottomless coffee, tea and fresh squeezed juices. In addition, you order one item off the menu.

Check out other breakfast places we love!
La Gaterie King George – A little bit of Paris on King George. La Gaterie is more of a café than a restaurant and they only serve croissants – but wow, they know how to make a croissant! On the savory side take your pick of poached egg, and lots of different cheeses and hams; for the sweet-toothed check out the croissant with chocolate mascarpone. Comes with a nice strong coffee. King George 97.
Sandwich Shel Itzik V Ruti – The place is almost as old as Tel Aviv. It’s only open until about 11am (sometimes even earlier if they run out of food), there only a few things to choose from (lechmania or pita filled with either shakshuka, tuna salad, carrot salad, eggplant salad), there’s nowhere to sit, and usually a little queue – but OMG the sandwiches are amazing! Shenkin 53.
