Charming place with innovative menu. A bit disorganized but, hey, you are in Israel. Soup of the day was extraordinary. Everything is made in house, even the bread. Service is slow but this typical on Jaffa. Really lovely experience.

We stopped here for some wine and nibbles as we walked the markets of Jaffa. Both were very good. A nice little spot.

We were there for the Sorcerer Night, which they host on Sundays. This is a kosher diary restaurant in the center of the Yaffo flea market. Good food. Enjoyed the evening.

It was our second time and the food was great. The flavors are fresh, interesting and delicious. It has much more variety than the average dairy restaurant- highly recommend.

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!
