We tried few local sweet and savory pastries from the street stand and they were great, but coming from Eastern Europe none of them were actually exotic for us. They were good, but nothing too special. The oriental sweets shops up the street were far more impressive.

Went there for breakfast. Tried the pastry with potatoes, salsa, egg etc in it - it has a name, but I don't remember it. The owner was very nice and friendly. My friend got a omelette - the guy made it with three eggs in a baguette. The other pastries were also good. The baklava plate from there was great - it had a variety of pieces. On the day of my flight back, I got boxes of baklava from him and he packed them fresh per my requirements. Great customer service.

This bakery has been around since 1859.
The smell is so enticing. I had a pizza that was super tasty. I will probably think about this for a long time. Leaving Israel tomorrow. If you go to Jaffa stop by.

All the sweet and savoury flavours of the orient. Many bars are close by and so is yaffo's unique fleamarket. My favourite shoe shop is there too!
