“great place to eat”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2012

For years I've heard about Maklot vanille, and only recently did we go there, and needless to say keep coming back. This is a simple restaurant with "simply wonderful food". The pastas are fresh, the sandwiches are extraordinary-made from their freshly baked breads and wonderful ingredients, coffee-terrific. They have their own bakery and make their own icecream, both of which I haven't tasted because I'm on weight watchers. But, the breads, which they do bake, are great. There is never a dull moment in this piece of Israeli nostalgia, and anyone who wants a light meal that does great things in the mouth, should not pass this up.

“Maklot Vanille - the best spot for a quick meal in the Valley”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 29, 2012

In the heart of the sleepy town of Afula (pop. 41,000), just down the street from the mall, is a restaurant that just might be worth going out of your way for.

Maklot Vanille (Vanilla Sticks) has the best breakfast in town. Whether you order the breakfast for two with fresh Israeli salad, eggs (anyway you want 'em), their own freshly-baked breads, juice and cheeses or just a coffee and croissant, you'll walk away content and fortified to take on day of serious sight-seeing.

Be prepared to wait a bit: the locals love to have a slow breakfast.

The restaurant is kosher, so don't bother showing up on a Saturday morning and no meat is served so vegetarians can really dig in.

Not cheap; but well worth the money.
