“Touristic and crowded”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 8, 2014

The food is mediocre, didn't seem fresh. The selection is very poor.
The place is very crowded, and on top of all too many dogs are running between your legs.
Not recommended!
There are so many better places close by: for breakfast go to Benedict and for lunch and dinner go to Cafe 48.

“Great Place for brunch, or night shows, beer and fries”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 2, 2014

Rothschild 12 has a vibe all of its own, which changes throughout the day but always stays hip and true to itself. On the weekends it has special brunches where the locals sit at small tables looking at the boulevard, and the food is outstanding and a little bit different than the usual Israeli breakfast through the country.

At nights, usually Wednesday and on the weekend, they bring local bands and their fries are amazing.

Great place to hang in Tel Aviv.

“Great Burgers, good Start-Up Spot”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 10, 2014

If you are looking for a great hippster/startup spot you will like this place.

Loads of business people plus entrepreneurs are around.and the service is "Berlin style".

The burgers are really good, fresh meat and a nice after all feeling.

It's not cheap (10 Euros for a burger) but worth it the atmosphere and quality.

“Crowded, but tasty”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 31, 2013

I was in a group of three needing lunch at 1PM on a Saturday in Tel Aviv, and despite saying that there was a 30-minute wait, Cafe 12 managed to seat us (albeit in a smoking section) within five minutes. Although we were in a corner in a back room, our server visited us regularly and we weren't ignored, as sometimes happens in Israel.

The table was small, and couldn't really fit a bread basket, two coffees, and everyone's entree on it, but the food made up for the inconveniences. The bread was fresh and delicious. Both the shakshuka (egg in tomato stew) and the sabich (fried eggplant, hard boiled egg, potato, and tahina sandwich) were as good as anywhere in Israel. The coffee was also competently done.
