We - a company of 7 - had a wonderful evening here at this local restaurant in Jaffa. The food was very good - homemade recipes - and the service var outstanding. We talked a lot to the staff, they knew all about the food, we got Arabian coffee and had the best time ever.

We went for several dishes and shared among us. This gave us a very good taste of the local kitchen.

We highly recommend this place and will return.

Either this was a really freakish morning or something is very wrong with the Tripadvisor rating system. The staff were run off their feet although the place wasn't full, and the waiter chided everyone who tried to get some long-overdue service. I ordered the mankosha he recommended, and ended up paying SIXTY SHEKELS (including drinks) for a very bad, miniature version of a breakfast I regularly whip up at home in five minutes. The orange juice was good, the black coffee passable, that's it.

This small authentic coffee shop has great breakfast and very good local pastries.
It is a quiet respite from the crowds at the port. Very friendly service and homemade salads.

This creative coffee house is full of charm and a great escape for a coffee or a meal during the day exploring old Jaffa. Very unique decor and offers indoor and outdoor seating. I came in for a cool drink and a light snack on a hot summer day, and wish I had more of a appetite that day since the menu was so enticing and the food served while I was there looked so good! Great service and prices too. One of the best coffee houses in Jaffa!
