“Crowded, impolite staff and a small variety menu”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 3, 2013

We arrived on a Friday.The place was very crowded and once we finally got a place to sit, there were not enough waiters to serve everyone in a reasonable time. Even when they did finally get to our table, courteousness was not their thing and they seems tired and like the last thing in the world they want to do at the moment is be there.
In addition, it turns out that some of the menu is not available on Fridays (e.g. salads). This left a very minimal choice to gluten-free eaters such as myself.

“good-different”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 19, 2013

There are quite a few excellent boulangeries in Tel Aviv. But Lachmanina is different - and it's a very good different. Its location makes it a true neighborhood bakery, as well as the amazing staff and owners. DO NOT walk away without having tried the Nelson bread. And if it's a Friday, get the pink-purple beat bread. But really, eat anything. It's all so yummy.

“Great Hamantaschen”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2013

Great Hamantaschen of several kinds. Marzipan-filled Hamantaschen are superb. Other types are also wonderful, although expected (poppy seeds, etc.).

“Great neighborhood bakery”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 30, 2013

This is a fantastic neighborhood bakery. Lots of interesting breads, pastries, foccacia! I was there in the spring/summer and sitting outside was great. This is a perfect place for a visiting american (or anyone) to get great, seasonal food! The mandela bread is very hearty and tasty.

“Superb breads”

Even the low calorie ones. Service is very parient even during rush hours. Take home more than you need as you eat a lot en route
