Nola American Bakery

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

Check out other breakfast places we love!

Lechem vShut – Ain’t no carb like an Israeli carb. Lechem vShut is hands down one of the best bakeries in Tel Aviv. For the early risers who pass by their doors, the frosted aromas begin wafting in the early hours, and are countered by the lines out the door every evening thanks to their half off specials after 19:00. From pizza to blueberry muffins to shakshuka-stuffed bread bowls, Lechem VShut is an ever-inviting place with kind people, good music, great vibes, and the best baked goodies on the block. Ben Yehuda 128

Dallal – 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. Shabazi 10

Delicatessen – Deli and restaurant, Delicatessen has amazing freshly baked breads, home curated meats and fishes and delicious salads. They have amazing breakfast options and a great variety of stuff you can take home with you. Yehuda Halevi 79

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

Lehamim – 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! Various locations in Tel Aviv 

Orna and Ella – 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. Shenkin 33

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

Rendez’vous – Great place for a kosher breakfast or brunch! The new menu includes hand-made pastas, homemade pizzas, fresh fish and appetizers, and there is a special breakfast and brunch menu as well. Lilienblum St 1
