Tel Aviv Cafes, Coffee Shops
Tel Aviv’s café culture has gone a long way in the past two decades, as coffee shops have been opening up on seemingly every street corner in hope of attracting the ever growing “Tel Aviv bubble” demographics.
This city has always been known for its residents’ love for sitting in a beautiful café and ignoring the hapless security, economical and political situation in the rest of the country (hence, the bubble). And once you’re here you’ll understand why it’s so bubbly: coffee is just the perfect pastime for this city and its tranquil pace.
However you like your coffee, you can get it – either espresso-based, Turkish black coffee, cold coffee, with soy milk or decaf, etc.
When the weather is as nice as it is in Tel Aviv, when the atmosphere is as vacation-y, when so many locals’ offices are their own laptops – no wonder there are more cafés here than there are dog walkers. And there are a lot of dog walkers in TA, as you’ll eventually see.
The largest collection of coffee places is in the Tel Aviv center, where most of them double as a restaurant-café. In Bugrashov, Rothschild Yirmiyahu you’ll find a string of quality spots one next to the other, and you’ll be hard pressed to make a wrong choice. Just remember this rule of thumb: follow the crowds.
