“A great breakfast in a funky kind of place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2014

Its only open for breakfast at weekends, but we went early 10:00 on a Saturday and got one of the last remaining outside seats on a sunny day. The place looks really beaten up and neglected, but that matches the vibe of the whole of Jaffo port at the minute - not so much shabby chic as just shabby. However the friendly and professional staff serve a great Israeli breakfast and it is pretty reasonably priced too and judging by the queues for a table by 10:30 it very popular. Great thing about going on a Saturday is the art galleries are all open and there's a craft market as well.

“Different in a good way. ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013

Lovely place located in the old port of Yaffo, from the outside the place look rusty and neglected but for those who step in there is a very pleasant bar scene the food menu is small bet some dishes are top cocking.
I went there on some very successful dates the girls were always surprised.
Make sure you don't go there on a cold night cause the place is freezing.

“Terrible food and service. We'll never return.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2013

My wife and I ate breakfast this morning at this place. The food and service was horrible. We left the place without eating the food and with no tip for the first time ever.
We ordered a typacle israeli breakfast. After waiting a very long time for our food to arrive, the salad arrived with parsley even through we specificly asked what was in the salad (my wife is alergic). The bread was burned, we couldnt even cut it with our hands (when we called the manager he didnt succeed as well), The manager was not willing to give us a new salad with no parsley with the reason that they dont do that (Even though the salad is supposed to be fresh and cut on order). The meal itself was lousy and simple. Not a typical israeli good breakfast and the price is not worth the money. We were very disappointed and we'll never return.
