In my opinion is the most characteristic place in Jaffa. The history of the family Aboullafia goes in 19 century. The place over the time has grown and the services are multiplies. Not only for the foreigners is the ideal place but the Israelis also comes . I recommended of deep of my heart!!!!!!

Pass this place, there are way too many other options. They are set up for large groups but apparently large groups come no more. What a surprise. We were chased from one filthy table to the next, but not before the two desperately in need of an attitude adjustment "cooks" prepared our gritty and cold shwarma sandwiches. The French fries...

The original and oldest branch of this bakery is Legendary Old Jaffa, near the clock tower. The Bakery sells a variety of baked goods, including Pita Bread , Bagels, Sambusak, Egg Bagels, Pizzas and sweets such as Bklwah and Cnaphe. Surrounding the Bakery, Abouelafia also offers a very successful Meat, Fish, and Oriental food (such as schwarma) restaurant located across from the Bakery in the Clock Square - all under the same authentic and beloved brand name. The restaurant also offers various sweets such as Baklawaot, Cnaphe, Shabakiye and hot and cold beverages.
