  • Don't fear; they have more than 12 chairs.
  • Love this place!!!! Great food, great service.
  • Excellent choice of Israeli wine and yes the hummus is top-notch!
  • The goat cheese salad is phenomenal
  • Best Shakshuka in the city...even better than Dr. Shakshuka in Tel Aviv!
  • Legit Israeli food. Great hummus, great spicy shakshuka, actually everything was great
  • Apparently the key is to get there early (maybe 10 AM) and get the Jachnun, which sells out quickly.
  • Go for the shakshuka
  • Out new favorite place. Everything is delicious and the staff is great. Come for breakfast and order the Israeli breakfast. Or... The French Toast...
  • Surprisingly well-priced for the area. Schnitzel was delicious, and their homemade honey mustard dressing is excellent and can be purchased by the bottle.
  • It's not expensive!
  • One of the best burgers in town!
  • Aloe Vera Mimosa is a MUST!!!!
  • The blintzes here were phenomenal, as was the hummus. The blueberry pancakes were ok, but not the religious experience described by some of the other tips.
  • Holy crap this place is amazing!!! Get a burger and blueberry pancakes
  • The shakshuka is absolutely delicious & authentic! Be sure to try it!
  • The service is often terrible, so be patient, but the food is nice comfort food when you're in the mood. Cheap and comfy for the hood.
  • Mint lemonade
  • Try the falafel, as if we were in Israel! :)
  • Wonderful falafel, hummus and pita! So soft! I have to come back and try more of their dishes.
