Coffee Culture in Tel Aviv

Guys, I'm sure you already know my deep love and appreciation for coffee (primarily), food, and Tel Aviv? Well, through my constant Googling the topics, I came across a blog brilliantly named Tel Aveat (see what they did there?). It's run by Leah and Natalie, two lovely Londoners currently living in Tel Aviv, also: they're major foodies. Together they set out on a mission to provide their readers the best foodie goodness Tel Aviv has to offer. Upon meeting with Tel Aveat a few months ago, it was decided that we simply had to collaborate. Now, I know my blog is usually fashion-y and stuff, but I really want to share Tel Aviv's insanely good coffee culture with you all. Enjoy!

Delicatessen | 79-81 Yehuda Halevi Street, Tel Aviv | +972 3 968 1010 | https://www.delitlv.co.il/

via
Coffee has become a human necessity, right? Right. The coffee served at Delicatessen more than does the job. It's the same as the coffee served at Brasserie, Coffee Bar, and a few other incredible spots around town. However, the atmosphere at Delicatessen is insanely good in it's own right! Lively, busy, and one of our favourite spots to sit outside on the street-facing patio and enjoy. Time at Delicatessen just seems to fly by... The deli includes a take-out counter, and restaurant/café. If you'd like something sweet, order a coffee with a slice of cheesecake (FYI it's the best cheesecake in the city); or if you are after something savoury than a bagel with smoked salmon and cream cheese does the trick.


Café Habima | 31 Ben Zion Blvd. Tel Aviv | www.facebook.com/Cafe.Habima

via
Also known as We Like You Too, Café Habima is a small kiosk-café (Tel Aviv's answer to the food-truck) located on the corner of the lovely and green Ben Zion Blvd and the stunning Habima Square. This place screams 'trendy' without it being too much, a big accomplishment. The coffee is always flowing; while there may always be a line to get some, the baristas are incredibly fast and are SO good at what they do. Additionally, the sandwiches are to die for. But really, what's better than a surprisingly light and not greasy bacon and cheddar sandwich to accompany your morning cup? You're welcome to sit on the many benches close by, or to simply take your food to the Square. It's just the perfect weekend spot.

Cafelix | 12 Shlomo Hamelech Street, Tel Aviv / 15 Segula Street, Jaffa | http://www.cafelix.de/

Gorgeous, and quite hidden on a pretty green side street; Cafelix is definitely the local's favorite. Beans are imported from many locations, such as Ethiopia and Panama, though the beans are roasted in house (in Cafelix's Jaffa location), and they're roasted slowly to perfection. Each country's beans has a unique flavor, and the whole fun is in learning and then choosing the flavor that best fits into your day.
The crowd is really vibrant, and classically Tel Aviv. You can often find designers with their sketches laid on the tables during weekdays, and on weekends you'll see these über trendy young parents enjoying a cappuccino as their equally as trendy kids (I know, right? #OnlyinTLV) playing in the garden out front. Cafelix has a love story behind it, and it's coffee related - for the most part. You can also shop their coffee beans online (here).






Burle "Pitzi" | Ben Gurion Blvd 109 (corner of Ben Yehuda Street), Tel Aviv | +972 3 523 4478

via
This coffee stand opened 4 years ago, but the location was once a kiosk in the 30's; the stand is named after the owner (Burle). For locals, however, the small stand has been fondly dubbed "pitzi", translating from Hebrew to English as a slang word for "tiny". It is constantly busy with customers, either getting their on-the-go fix, or sat at the bench-style tables enjoying the gorgeous tree-lined Ben Gurion Boulevard. Burle uses DAdA coffee beans, roasted in Israel, giving the Americano a smooth rather than bitter taste. Their ice coffee is famous, as the machine they use gives it a thick ice creamy-ness. In addition to the coffee, they bring their small sandwiches, cakes, and pastries from the delicious Reviva and Celia café and bakery.


Café Mae | 98 Ibn Gvirol Street, Tel Aviv / 2 Shefer Street, Tel Aviv | https://maecafe.com/

via
Café Mae's two locations may be in two of the busiest areas in town, and yet, they managed to create this fresh and beautiful space for you to come relax and take in the fresh aromas of the café's signature coffee. The café's owners are Israelis who once lived in Costa Rica, where they discovered the speciality coffee beans grown locally.They then opened Costa Rica's first ever espresso bar before bringing the amazing coffee beans back with them to Israel. Beans are roasted in house, on a daily basis. Expect amazing aromas always.
When you order at Café Mae, the baristas tend to ask if you know the story behind the coffee. Education about the bean is really promoted, as the owners are so passionate about Costa Rica and the origins coffee. However, the café being in Tel Aviv after all, this has become a must-stop for  the city's trendiest quick-coffee-runers and brunchers alike.


Really hope this post helps you choose the perfect café for your Tel Aviv vacation. And if you're a local: what's your favorite coffee spot?
