Nice outdoor setting for an early breakfast with family members. Distinct Middle Eastern flavours and choices on the menu. Very good shakshuka and eggs benedict. Will be back to try the lunch and dinner menu!

Teta Mari remains one of my favourites for a quick bite. Try one of their famous hot dogs. Good coffee and service as well.

A regular place for weekend breakfast with excellent shakshuka with spicy chilli and coriander sauce and Mediterranean foods. Think hummus, labaneh, pita bread, halloumi, halva, honey, Israeli salad. The shawarmas and brisket on rye are other lunch time favourites.
