Super delicious! You can choose between different toppings and sirups (which all taste amazing!) You can get a little coffee to your Malabo, if desired. I like this place and will always come along, when I’m in Israel 🙂

Really good middle Eastern dessert! Tasty as. The place is so trendy! Sometimes there’s a line and the drink made from the same ingredients is also really good!

We stumbled across this cafe while walking through Old Jaffa, and I'm glad we did! A perfect example of applying the Israeli entrepreneurial spirit to the traditional family experience! The specialty dish (after which the cafe is named) is made using the owner's mother's recipe...More

The place serves good malabi (and sahleb on winters). Enjoy the fun atmosphere in the middle of Tel Aviv with a backgammon game, cheap beers and cocktails.

Cosy dessert place in a local neighbourhood outside of the city centre of Tel Aviv-Yafo. Really delicious local deserts. They also serve drinks.

Fantastic malabi at a very reasonable price with great, friendly service. Located at the heart of the gorgeous Flea market in Jaffa, I recommend to stop by for a refreshing break while touring this area, the Jaffa port and Jaffa’s old city. Highly recommended! 😀😀
