“Nice, cozy cafe in the centre of the city”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2014

I have been here 3 times with friends. The cafe is located downtown (basically walking distance from the central train station - around 10 minutes and right next to the Plac Konstytucji square) and has several tables outside on the sidewalk on warm months. The interior is simple, but with quite a cozy feeling. The service is decent. When it comes to the food, we always ordered the mezzas (pastas like hummus, babaganoush, etc. each for only 5pln) - they are great to share. When you order 6 or more it's a good idea to take 2 pitas per person (one tends to not be enough;) they cost 3pln each). I've had better hummus elsewhere, but the other mezzas are very tasty! I also love the moroccan tea (there's quite a big selection of other teas, too). Of course there are many other dishes in the menu, but I think the this is a nice place to pop in for a snack! Ironically, opposite the street there is a cafe called Beirut:)

5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2014

Good Israeli food, but not as good as in lovely israel. The atmosphere and location is nice special at sumer time.
Service is good and soups are delicious.

“Delicious Israeli food in the heart of Warsaw ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2014

Informal cafe decor; pleasant background music.
Friendly and attentive service.

I went for the mezze. Portions were small but I guess that's the point.
Food arrived very quickly and was delicious.
The lemon/mint crushed ice drink was different and refreshing.
Looking forward to returning next time I am in town.

“Pro-israel veggie cafe”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2014

We are vegetarian so had to try here- it was nice overall with friendly helpful staff, but 2 things stick out- it is very pro-israel as you would expect given its title, but considering the issues in Gaza I felt a bit uncomfortable eating there to be honest as I didn't really clock where Tel-Aviv was until we sat down and looked at the walls.

Also the food is very classic vegetarian- in that it is alot of leaves and raw vegetables. The houmous was nice but not as amazing as all the reviews had said, to be honest I prefer Tesco's.

“Tasty Israeli vegan food in the heart of Warsaw”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2014

First of all it is not Israel, so do not expect exactly what you get in their capital. Still, the food is fresh, tasty and the ambience really cosy. We had shakshuka with tofu (great) and mezze plate with falafel, hummus, tahina and some salads (good). All was light and full of flavour and we topped it up with black tea with fresh mint.
If you are in the neighbourhood Tel-Aviv on Poznanska is a great place for a light and healthy meal. They are fully vegan and in each case offer a gluten-free option. If you are not hungry you can drop by for a beer or glass of wine. I will definitely be visiting again soon.
