The food is delicious, very affordable. You must try their vegan lentil meatballs in pesto sauce with coconut milk.

3 in our party had the pasta with mushrooms and salmon in cream sauce and all 3 would gladly have it again. I had the Mediterranean pizza - tomatoes, britney black olives, red onions and a wafer thin crust.... delicious.

Five of us had dinner last night. The appetizers were very good, but not spectacular: the soup of the day (vegetable), ceviche (diced too small), and grilled eggplant with tahini (very good). All main courses were excellent: goat cheese pizza, another pizza with cheese and...More

Charming place with innovative menu. A bit disorganized but, hey, you are in Israel. Soup of the day was extraordinary. Everything is made in house, even the bread. Service is slow but this typical on Jaffa. Really lovely experience.

We stopped here for some wine and nibbles as we walked the markets of Jaffa. Both were very good. A nice little spot.

We were there for the Sorcerer Night, which they host on Sundays. This is a kosher diary restaurant in the center of the Yaffo flea market. Good food. Enjoyed the evening.

It was our second time and the food was great. The flavors are fresh, interesting and delicious. It has much more variety than the average dairy restaurant- highly recommend.

Tried a little of everything, the pizza, pasta, salads and some appetizers- the roasted eggplant was excellent. Kids liked the food too which says a lot .

Cafe Yaffo was born out of a great love to a city, which its contrasts and edges exist in perfect harmony: the old with the new, Jew, Christian and Muslim, the vendor with the artist, the architecture with the street. This unique harmony has brought Orna Givon and her husband Nir, to establish Caffe Yaffo, a kosher restaurant in the heart of the Flea Market. What is the secret charm of the place? Hard to tell ... maybe it's the special texture of tastes, that Orna's daughter is responsible for - chef Roni Rivlin (that has been standing in the kitchen from the day she could walk). Perhaps it is the unique structure, with eclectic decor and multi styles. Maybe those music nights, concerts, events, with various singers and bands, that touch the heart, from blues and soul through the Mediterranean basin to Spain. Perhaps these unique cultural tours, departing from Caffe Yaffo all over the city, under the guidance of the original actors and artists. And maybe, just maybe these things together, just like Jaffa, also live here, in the same harmony. Enjoy!
