You haven’t been to Tel Aviv if you haven’t been to Benedict (drunk or sober). With four central locations all open 24/7 (in and around Tel Aviv), there is no excuse not to go. Of course they have classic Israeli breakfast options, but here are a few of the Benedict specials that are out of this world. If you want something savory, make sure to try the spinach or mushroom egg balls. If you’re looking for something sweet, the white chocolate espresso pancakes are a must. Oh, and if you’re ready to carbo-load, the bread basket is dope and is accompanied by four amazing spreads.
Their motto, “good things come in small packages” is the perfect way to describe this quaint outdoor eatery. Located outside of the city in Ramat Aviv (near Tel Aviv University), this neighborhood spot is yummy and wholesome. What to order? Their shakshuka (with amazing bread) is the perfect size and has a perfect amount of flavor.
With a name like Café Xoho, it’s understandable that this spot is a favorite among the young hipster crowd. Meat lovers, don’t be alarmed by the extensive vegetarian options- although they lack in meat, nothing about them lacks flavor (vibes included). Make sure to order one of their specialty drinks (the limonana and dirty chai are amazing). What to order? Their bagels are some of the best in Tel Aviv (who knew bagels and lox would be impossible to find in the homeland?). Also, the Tofu Bahnmi is a unique dish with a nice Sriracha kick.
Located on Dizengoff, one of the main streets in TLV, Etnachta offers one of the best traditional Israeli breakfasts. With a cute outdoor eating area, it's a perfect place to meet a friend in the summer and to enjoy the weather and some of the finest people watching. What to order? The Israeli breakfast for two is both a great deal and extremely satisfying as it comes with a variety of salads, fresh breads, cheese, spreads and eggs! Also, their muesli (yogurt parfait) is by far one of the best in Tel Aviv.
NOLA, which stands for New Orleans, Louisiana, is the perfect restaurant for an American looking for a taste of home. From their freshly baked pasties to their southern comfort breakfast combos, this menu is sure to satisfy any palate. What to order? For sweet: anything in the pastry window. For savory: the breadcrumb mac and cheese or the house special (hashbrowns covered in melted cheese with mushrooms and caramelized onions, two fried eggs, salad and buttered toast).
