Description: "Delicious muffins just came out of the oven" is a phrase so often heard by customers at Cafe Xoho. With a new flavor coming out of the oven everyday, the love and care can be sensed through the delicious smells in the air, and the art on every plate. From cookies to cakes and art to music, the word 'homemade' is a perfect description of this home away from home, in the centre of Tel Aviv.

“Amazing Food! Great Atmosphere! Lovely Service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

I make an effort to have brunch at Cafe Xoho at least once a month. The food is delicious, fresh, and original - this is not your typical Tel Aviv cafe. Their beer bread and egg special is always amazing and super filling. My favorite part is that almost everything is made right there on the spot - so expect fresh, healthy choices. MUST TRY - Onion Jam and the Bagels!
The service is fantastic always - everyone is super nice and super accommodating. Considering I have a severe nut allergy, the staff and chef are always incredibly attentive.
Whether you want a quick bite or work from your laptop for a few hours, the atmosphere is super cozy, comfortable and no one is pushing you out the door.
A must visit!

“A wonderful trip made even better”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2013

I happen to meet Xolie and Howie the night before and had a great conversation with them. She invited me to the cafe for breakfast the next day. I am so glad that I decided to venture over. A beautifully colored and designed cafe just off the beaten path. pastries fresh out of the oven a great local roast coffee and a wonderful hostess. This cafe is a must when in Tel-Aviv.

“Nice little cafe. But not top 10.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2013

No idea how this place is in the top 10 restaurants in TLV. Nice place, but no more than that. It's a nice little home-style cafe off Ben Yehuda Street. Totally inoffensive, decent service, cute little place and fun vibe.

The place gets 4 stars (really it should be 3.5 but I'm feeling generous), because it's cute, but loses 2 stars for the constant smoke entering from its balcony area. Sorry guys, get your act together and comply with the law.

Xoli1986, Manager at Cafe Xoho, responded to this review, 4 weeks ago
Dear Ray C,

We are sorry to hear that your experience at our little Cafe was not entirely enjoyable. Unfortunately as much as there is a law about smoking in this country it is hard to combat the entirely smoking culture that lives within it. We hope you will visit again, and if so please ask your waitress (or me, for that matter) to kindly close the door so that smoke does not come inside.

Thank you,

Xoli

“Very Funky Cafe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2013

Xoho Cafe is a gem that takes you a feel of the 60's in a city that is racing forward. The decor is original, the manager and hostess is very charming, and I would highly recommend it (especially for the english speaking crowd). Well done.
