Kosher dairy. Long waits on Friday mornings. The "nishnoosh" menu items are wonderful. All pastries are really good. Service has varied from prompt and friendly to disorganized and slovenly. Pretty much a crap shoot. Note that this is a chain; there are Shani cafes all over and the original original one is also in Haifa, in the old Hadar neighborhood.

If you want a good cup of coffee and really good pastry/cake this is the place. The menu includes salads, sandwiches. You can buy cakes etc to take home. One of the oldest bakeries in Haifa.

Cafe Shani is a classic restaurant in Haifa. The original branch in the lower part of Haifa has been around forever, offering great classic pastries. The place in Neve Shaanan is nicer to sit in than the original but not as nice as the one in Merkaz Hacarmel. Decent menu and decent service.

We went there for breakfast, the restaurant was half empty. We ordered an Israeli breakfast for two. The waitress forgot to offer fruit juices. The salads, cheeses, etc. and the omelets were all brought together with the coffee. The food was generous but when we were leaving the waitress told us that we are entitled to fruit juices which should... More

Can't say anything bad about the food, but it does not offer anything that can't be bought elsewhere. However, the prices are high and the service is average.
