Great food, great coffee

Fat camel has great food AND great coffee! The Pita's are my favourite however they even have a carb free version for those who would prefer. The coffee is so good that I would go just for the coffee but it would be a travesty to not get a pita as they are so good and nutrient dense. I'll never... read more

I regularly meet relatives there for lunch, the latest being yesterday. Once again we had tasty fresh food at a very reasonable price, followed by delicious coffees.The atmosphere is cosy, and it was warm inside on what was a cold day.I can't fault it as a low cost eatery serving grade A food.

Stopped for a bite and discovered this place tucked away down an alleyway. Ordered a wrap of some kind cant actually remember so it didn't leave an impression. My partner had bowl of something which even he cant recall and we finished it off with a pastry dish that again didn't leave an impression. So-So I'd say. The homeless person... More

Visited many times - it's always busy and you can understand why. Good tasty food and efficient service and they handle large groups quite easily.

We had wandered around town looking for somewhere to eat with some vegetarian options, a bit hard to find sometimes. Love Middle Eastern food and this cafe/restaurant really stood out. Understated decor but really delicious food. The range of salads were diverse and all delicious and complimented the main part of the meal. The only downside was the meals were... More

Tasty food. Friendly staff. Average prices. Have not had any other Israeli food so can't compare but based on this I will try more in the future. Typical sidewalk cafe style with indoor and outdoor seating.
