A round up of our top 5 Israeli breakfast spreads. For anyone following our Instagram, you know breakfast is our fave meal!
(1) Mashya - Fridays and Saturdays are a best time to hit up this well-stocked buffet as it is open until 3 pm. It is surprisingly rare in Tel Aviv to find this late of a brunch offering. You order an eggs dish from the regular menu and the chef's prepared buffet (high quality fresh salads, cheese, fish, granola, fresh baked pastries... not what you think of normally for a buffet) is included in the price.
(2) Claro - like Mashya, Fridays and Saturdays are the best bet for the late riser. We love the Israeli breakfast spread for two and the shakshukas.
(3) Hotel Montefiore - like everything coming out of this hotel, the breakfast feels elegant and in vogue. The Israeli breakfast features the basics, presented well - eggs to order, cherry tomato salad, cheeses, jams and pastries. Amp the meal up with smoked salmon or mushroom ragout on poached eggs.
(4) Rothschild Hotel - the small paintbrush in the olive oil is a simple creative touch that sold us to one of our favorite Israeli breakfasts in the city. Choices besides the Israeli breakfast are also winners here including the shakshuka and the french toast.
(5) Bucke Cafe - order the "country breakfast" and enjoy a hefty tray of daily chosen goodies fit for 2-3 people. You can let the wait staff know your preferences for the tray, and the best part is that you can get refills on whatever goes quickest.
