“Overhyped”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2013

I had definitely hard several times that this was THE bakery to check out in Tel Aviv, especially as its history dates back over a century.

That said, the goods were WAY overpriced and not that fresh or tasty. This is a skip.

“All the choices!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013

It has been a long time since I was at Abulafia, but I will always go back when I'm in Tel Aviv. You walk up and there is a plethora of delicious baked good for you to chose from. I particularly like the items with the egg baked into the dough. Anything you get will be delicious, and quick. Dont miss it when your in Yaffo.

“A must in Tel Aviv”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013

An Arab bakery that sells the best baked goods in Tel Aviv.

Borekas with all sorts of different fillings, toasted bagels filled with cheeses that just fill your mouth with deliciousness, pitta with olive oil and za'tar (a personal favourite).....grab a bite and walk the Tel Aviv broadwalk, one of life's simple pleasures!
