Cafe Cafe - Yehuda Maccabee

Overall rating: 2.0 stars 1 Reviews
Serves meat, veg options available. Somewhat upscale coffee cafe chain with multiple locations, and all have marked vegan and vegetarian items on its menu. Some of the vegan items are "without the meat" or "without the cheese" but in these cases it charges less for the vegan version. There is one vegan breakfast, as well as vegan sandwiches, salads, and pasta dishes. Atmosphere here is subdued and quiet. Menu available in English, free wi-fi. Price: Moderate more-less

Veganizable Options

Posted on 06 / 05 / 2014

Cafe Cafe is a national chain of cafes, many of which are kosher, although this particular branch is not kosher.

Here you have a pleasantly dark and subdued escape from the hot Israeli sun and in winter they enclose the outdoor seating areas. (By the way, the wheelchair accessibility is only to the outdoor areas.)

The chain has upgraded their menus to include well-marked vegan and veganizable dishes on all their menus. If it is a veganizable dish, let's say, where you request that they leave out the meat or cheese or egg, they will charge you less for that dish. However, while this is fair, I'd like to see dishes on the menu that were created for vegans, and not just trying to cash in on the huge vegan clientele in Tel Aviv. There are a limited number of these vegan/veganizable dishes. Also, there is no breakfast deal for vegans, so you end up paying extra for coffee plus even more for soy milk.

The food I've had here is usually ok but could be better. This chain should look up the Israeli "Vegan Friendly" standard and learn what vegans expect today.

Pros: Peaceful atmosphere
Cons: Vegan options lack originality, Charges extra for soy milk, Service can be sub-par
