Bucke has a real neighborhood restaurant feel to it: with friendly waiters, a local clientele, and a simple yet delicious menu.

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

Located in Neve Tzedek, Dallal is a really special place to go for breakfast. The atmosphere is relaxed, the decoration meticulous.

Orna and Ella

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.

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.
