The owners are very hospitable, friendly and have there for as long as I have been eating there (about 20 years). They also sell there drinks and for... More

This very small place serves delicious fallalel sandwiches. It located in very small street in north of Haifa. There are only very few seats and on the counter there are olives and spicy sauce. The fallafel themselves are very soft in a crusty shell. They are very tasty.

Hazkenim - in Hebrew the Eldery is a falafel stand for many years. Someone might say an historic place in haifa. Yet the falafel is very tasty fresh and hot. You eating while standing which might be seen as fast fast fast food. You must taste it to understand what is falafel.

Family brought us to their favourite spot, and we were not disappointed. Competition is across the street, but quiet. Even the tour groups seem to stop at this "establishment." A constant line. Falafel melts in your mouth. Loved the wholewheat pita bread: perfectly fresh and combined well with the salad and sauces inside. I only had a half (heal) and... More

Always fresh, simple, no tricks. Just very good, tasty, clean. No parking. Park and walk. This is a nice and different part of Haifa to visit.

Lots of locals, friendly staff, great food. Falafel here is a bit different than the ones I've eaten in popular places in Tel Aviv or Jerusalem. When you are in Haifa you must give it a try.
