Beside the fact we had to remind the waitresses on missing stuff in every portion we ordered, it still came with mistakes, taste was less than average, came out late and for the end the coffee had a hair in it..! First and last time here. A lot of other great coffee shops nearby!

Very good place for breakfast in TLV. I had shakshuka which was tasty and my wife had the Israeli breakfast which she loved. Coffee was good and prices are reasonable. Also in a great location.

Charming, elegant, feels like abroad - I've been frequenting this place for many years with my laptop or a good book. Love to sit here. The food also seems enticing, although I mostly come here for a cup of coffee.

I live in the area and we usually visit our favourite places. We decided to give Café Michal a try and unfortunately we were very disappointed. We sat outside, on the table there was some water. When finally someone came to clean the table, instead of taking the water/breadcrumbs to their side, they did it in a way all the... More

A quiet and intimate restaurant in the heart of Tel Aviv. They serve a very good and fulfilling breakfast. I gave it only 4 stars because their breakfast prices on saturdays are different than what is written in the menu. Being fair is as important as being good.

Wonderful and intimate outdoor / indoor cafe with signature salads, soup & entrees. The chicken salad on a bed of greens with tahini is especially delicious. Lentil soup was perfectly creamy and hearty. Coffee is superb. This is the ultimate chill spot, date place ... actually I met my wife for a coffee here which turned into dinner and then... More

A central and nice location on a corner of a main street and a side street, so sitting outside is nice. Coffee is good but its a pity that the cake wasn't fresh. Service was kind and efficient.

Had a late dinner there after arriving in Tel Aviv. If was delightful. We sat outside and had wine and great food while watching the activity on the street. The help was friendly and had excellent recommendations. This will become one of our "go to" spots.

Thank Benebarak
