Living in Emek Refa'im (or the German Colony as it's otherwise known) I am a regular visitor to Holy Bagel at Breakfast time. My biggest complaint is that they give you far too much food. I doubt anybody leaves here hungry. The variety and quality...More

Amazing salads & soooo fresh bagels. We also bought some to take home along with the house made cream cheese mixes. Just like anywhere else the fresher the bagel the better the flavour. Great service & definitely recommend

Nice sandwiches, great place to get something quick on the go. They also have good desserts. I have never been to this location but there is a nice one in the central bus station.

You are not in New York so a "bagel is not a bagel" but this cones fairly close. Good value and very english speaker friendly

Stopped to have a bagel for lunch and was pleasantly surprised. Who knew a great bagel could be found in Israel. Lox and cream cheese on a sesame bagel.

If you are a looking for a taste of NY with Israel on the side, then try Holy Bagel on Emek Rafaim. Situated near the end of this great street of botiques and retaurants Holy Bagel has NY style bagel with your choice of toppings. I went for the standar lox, cream cheese, tomatoe and onion and wa not disapointed. They have a few locations, no web site. But here's a 10% off coupon http://www.eluna.com/rest%5CHolyBagel.asp?mumu=449
