“One of the best sandwiches I've ever had”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 27, 2012 via mobile

This place has a very simple concept. You don't choose what you're going to eat. You are told what you are going to eat. The place is nothing but a small kiosk. The owner is a lady who runs the place for over 40 years. She makes only sandwiches but she does it with perfection. The atmosphere of the place is great. Students wait for their meal together with lawyers. Young people with elderly. Don't miss it!

“Wonderful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 23, 2012

This is one of the best sandwich places in Haifa. A very small but authentic place, with 70s decor... The sandwiches are relatively simple but excellent because of the fresh and tasty ingredients and sauces. Even the lettuce somehow tastes different here...

“The Local's Insider Tip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 11, 2012

This place has received the price as the best sandwhich place in the country. Bracha has been making sandwiches in this unspectacular and unfancy place for 40 years. You can walk past the place a thousand times and never realize it is there, forget about knowing what gem there is hidden in that rather unspectacular smudgy looking place. But the sandwhiches are a revelation. Bracha makes everything herself, the bread, the sauces, the mayonnaise. But don't think you get actually to choose the sandwhich you are going to eat. While I was there, seven people came in to order a sandwhich and in all cases she told them that they should find a place and that she would make them a sandwich. She makes what she wants and you just get to eat what she wants to give you. The only option you have is to tell her that you want it hot or not, and if you are a vegetarian. While she isn't a great fan of vegeterianism, she said that she doesn't eat meat herself every day, so yes, she can also make a vegetarian option. The place is recommendable jusst as much for its sandqwiches as for Bracha herself. It is helpfull though to speek Hebrew, as this is a local's only sandwhich bar really. I have no clue if she speaks any other languages. But then again, since she makes what she wants and you have only to say sandwhich, I guess, even without language you get what you need. The bread looked suspicious to me at first glance, but like everyone else I ate it all, even looked if there was something that had fell into the plastic bag when finished, to lick my fingers. Indeed the price the place got is well earned. Best sandwhich I have ever had. You know, the type that one used to get 40 years ago, before things got all pre-produced. A confirmation that there is something for the craft in the kitchen. The price is bit higher than for a simple sandwich (30 Shekel) but you will discover that it is worth every penny you are paying.
