After walking around with the Sandeman Walking Tour, we couldn’t help but notice the smell of yeast in the air. We decided to stop by after. It’s located in the same square as the clock tower. They present their baked goods inside a glass shelves...More

After arriving in Israel, this bakery was our first experience of Israeli food - and it was wonderful. We selected one of each of the pastries displayed in the window and set up a communial lunch spread. Everything was fresh, warm and tasty. Highly recommended.

Everyone in Israel knows "Lafia". 24-hour streetside window bakery has been located at the same corner in Jaffa since 1879. It specialises in anything to do with dough. There is a dazzling variety, plain, dressed or stuffed, makes no difference, it is all so good....More

We stayed in Jaffa and came here every morning to try some type of new bread product, and loved them all. They also sell sweets and croissant type things. However the best things we ate were the flat breads and the zaatar one in particular.
