This restaurant is on the steet, with some other restaurants/cafes nearby. I noticd it because of the sibg, rewarded from tripadvisor. And it was so right! Service was friendly and easy , food came right away, it was delicious, very tasty! And the best thing: toilet was clean! It is very important thing to us who come from Finland. In old dirty city like Jaffa, something you might not expect.

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.
