Description: If you’ve ever doubted Tel Aviv as a culinary hotspot able to hold its own next to top culinary destinations, then it’s time you had a meal at Brasserie. Owned by the impressive hospitality group, R2M, Brasserie and its Parisian-style dishes, cosmopolitan vibe, and round-the-clock filled seats brings the best of Tel Aviv to the tabletop.

Delicatessen is another in the group of great eateries in Tel Aviv that include Brasserie M&R, Coffee Bar and Hotel Montefiore established by Ruthie and Mati Brodo. It follows in the tradition of excellently prepared and presented as well as delicious dishes at very reasonable prices on the scale of value for money.
We went there for Friday brunch which is served till 5 pm. There are other menus for each day of the week in addition to breakfast and we will surely return to try them.
As for the brunch, we had the "piece de resistance" the Delicatessen Breakfast, a terrific combination including a selection of goat cheeses, smoked trout, egg salad, herring, ham, black olives, butter and confitures. And the breads! Oh the breads! May that bakery be blessed! We would go there again just for the heavenly choice of breads. This spread also includes a choice of beverages - alcoholic such as arak and freshly squeezed orange juice or a glass of wine and soft. Needless to say, all the products were top quality. If I must niggle, I would prefer a mixed and dressed salad rather than a few cut vegetables (tomatoes and radishes).
There are many other choices, some of which we saw on neighboring tables and which looked very enticing - green (spinach) and red (pepper) shakshuka, smoked salmon, many variations of eggs, humous and mashed fava beans, etc.
The place was packed to the gills with hungry customers waiting for tables on the pavement outside and along the stairs to restaurant on the second floor. The atmosphere was pretty intense, happy and Israeli style loud. The wait staff was a bit harried, but did it's best, successfully, to keep things moving along smoothly. I can understand why smiles from them were rare that day.
The ground floor is devoted to the delicatessen where a myriad of wonderful products, including that bread, is on sale.
We will definitely go there again. And again.
Highly recommended. Reservations at peak times absolutely necessary.

Enjoyed a really yummy brunch here, loved everything on the menu but had sadly no room for example the crepes with Nutella and bananas... Inside there is a deli shop with a super selection of cheeses, bread, sausages, flowers etc. The location is a bit off, no view to speak about, but the intense stream of Tel Aviv residents who came to pick up their weekend bags of good stuff is a tell tale that this is a very good spot indeed.

Great food and products, elegant and busy, good service, menu changes often.
Went three times in a month with friends and clients, enjoyed it every time as did my guests.
The first floor shop is worth a look.
Enjoy

I had breakfast twice and the food was simply scrumptious. Try their green Shakshuka. Their breads are great (and all the yummy stuff spread on the table to put on them). I wish I had such a place around my corner.
