Year Course Year Course Recommends: Cafe Casbah

By Year Course in Israel

Cafe Casbah is a cool little spot in Tel Aviv’s hip Florentine neighborhood, offering a nice and relaxed atmosphere.

Catering to a young and hip (and working on their laptops) crowd, Cafe Casbah’s vibe is best described as “90s counterculture,” with an indoor and outdoor space decorated with plants and a tons of stickers—everything from local bands to Jewish prayers to random websites.

With the Beatles and Rolling Stones playing overhead, we checked out the extensive and vegetarian-friendly menu: tofu stir-fry, veggie burgers, red and green shakshuka, salads, quiche, and more. We all ended up ordering a special deal for croissant or bagels with coffee, and were thoroughly impressed! The coffee was strong but not bitter, the bagels pretty impressive by Israeli standards.

Overall, we would strongly recommend the cafe. It was really nice to explore a different neighborhood through food, and it was definitely worth the fairly lengthy bus ride. We would rate this place an 8/10.

Cafe Casbah is located at 3 Florentine Street, Tel Aviv
