We read a review and decided to try it out. We had the fried lentil balls on rice with spinach/coconut milk sauce. Gluten free. Tasted incredible. The chef was happy to share the recipe

Maybe it was me (I can't believe all the positive reviews of this place) but this is THE only restaurant in my life where food was served without a plate, a napkin and cutlery. I had to wait for 15 minutes after repeatedly waving to...More

A group of eight friends had a pleasant lunch in the Cafe Yafo. Most of us had salads which were fresh, appetizing and delicious. The pasta was also good.

After a disappointing visit to Pua, we crossed the road to Cafe Yaffa, which displays a Vegan Friendly sticker. I was with my daughter and two grandchildren, 14 and 10. We were seated and given menus and my granddaughter asked for chips. The waiter said...More

Description
Cafe Yaffo was born out of a great love to a city, which its contrasts and edges exist in perfect harmony: the old with the new, Jew, Christian and Muslim, the vendor with the artist, the architecture with the street. This unique harmony has brought Orna Givon and her husband Nir, to establish Caffe Yaffo, a kosher restaurant in the heart of the Flea Market. What is the secret charm of the place? Hard to tell ... maybe it's the special texture of tastes, that Orna's daughter is responsible for - chef Roni Rivlin (that has been standing in the kitchen from the day she could walk). Perhaps it is the unique structure, with eclectic decor and multi styles. Maybe those music nights, concerts, events, with various singers and bands, that touch the heart, from blues and soul through the Mediterranean basin to Spain. Perhaps these unique cultural tours, departing from Caffe Yaffo all over the city, under the guidance of the original actors and artists. And maybe, just maybe these things together, just like Jaffa, also live here, in the same harmony. Enjoy!
