Description: "The cookies just came out of the oven" is a phrase so often heard by customers at Cafe Xoho. With different flavors coming out of the oven every morning, the love and care can be sensed through the delicious smells in the air, and the art on every plate. From cookies to cakes and art to music, the word 'homemade' is a perfect description of this home away from home, in the centre of Tel Aviv. Come and play with us at 17 Gordon Street, near the corner of Ben Yehuda!

Where to begin?

Unique: the 'dia de meurtos' decor (see pic), they sell books on hand, and UMM...only the BEST coffee in Israel?? They buy from an independent coffee place and it is very unique. You can't buy the product there, as they are loyal to their distributer, but they will tell you where to go to buy it. Also unique are the FLAVORS in the food. It's SO palatable. It hits so many fun flavors in your mouth.

Can you tell that I HIGHLY recommend going out of your way to try it out??

Food: Ordered the "Haloumi, bro" (the title is funnier in Hebrew). And it was OUT of this WORLD. Sorry for all the capital-letter-screaming, Im just reliving the flavors as I type this out. This fat, packed taco-style meal had the most exquisite Ceasar salad dressing flavor, fresh lettuce, fried haloumi, fresh fruits...oh man. Just wow.

Vegan-friendly.
GREAT waitstaff. So friendly and appropriately interested. So polite (some are foreigners - North America-type service).

They started off very small and have expanded since, and I want to promote business for this lovely place, so it continues to set a golden standard for serving GREAT food, in a Latin-America chic and unique environment while not being the slightest bit pretentious and uppity. And yes, for the love of Gd, go for their coffee. (I tried the Vietnam coffee - condensed milk, double shot espresso- highly recommended).

Oh, and the prices? Totally legit.

GO NOW.

I had breakfast here with my girlfriend and some friends, we were six people but they only had us wait a few minutes for a table.
We ordered the pancakes, some yogurt with granola, ice coffee and lemonana. Everything was very good and we enjoyed the meal. A special note goes to the banana bread, which was delicious. The servings were big and very high quality. We will return for sure next time we are in Tel Aviv.

I come here every once in a while and an never disappointed. Great breakfasts and even better baked goods (mainly cookies). You also can't beat the atmosphere, great coffee to top it off.

Has nice relaxed environment, appealing variety on menu plus daily specials. Personally, I require gluten free food, and they always have delicious options. They do come out and advise you that their kitchen has gluten products and there is a chance of cross contamination, but that they will take precautions to minimize as much as possible. I have not gotten sick eating from here. Great place to come for lunch- i have been here twice, on two different trips with lots of people, and everyone leaves here happy and full. Would recommend,

My favourite cafe in tel Aviv. Are there nearly every day - breakfast/lunch/ brunch.
Pretty much everything on the menu is delicious - always busy and can't book. It well worth the wait
