I’ve heard of Dizengoff for years but am embarrassed to say that I’ve never been before. That’s a big oversight but I’m pleased to say that’s now been rectified. All the reviews comment on how busy the place is and, at 7.30 on a weekday,...More

Sausage and eggs served with sourdough and a delicious parsley pesto topped off with a good coffee, a perfect start to the day.

Consistent honest local of many years. Coffee ok but need extra shot in larger serves. Varied breakfast selection to suit most moods and desires. Indoor and outdoor seating. Friendly staff, efficient service. Plenty of newspapers and magazines.

Great brunch at a super busy cafe was had. Counter ordering, but plenty of attention given on the floor by a switched on team delivering delicious food. Clean, modern decor, new fave from an old establishment.

We were staying across the street at the Ponsonby Manor and decided to give it a try. It was great food and our waitress from Sweden was the best!

I thought hard about whether Dizengoff would make the cut to meet my 5 star ‘only places I like’ criteria, and decided it did. It wasn’t what I had expected - quite stark white against a hard black, which gave the place an immediately cooler...More
