The Bistro 1887

I must be honest I am rather biased when it comes to Bistro 1887. I sit there several time a week (sometimes more), its right by my house, and I know the owner. This is one of spots where i express my Tel Avivianism (that’s not a word right?)

Corner of Liliblum (לילינבלום) and Pines (פינס) streets, Tel Aviv, Israel. (Photo credit: Wikipedia

Anyway…located on a sunny corner of Pines and Lilinblum st, Bistro 1887 is a cafe / restaurant hybrid on one of the edges of Neve Tzedek

Its charm lies in its picturesque corner location which is consistently sun facing, great coffee, and the international clientele. Its a great spot to watch the passer byes, read a book, and spend a lazy morning with a friend.

The menu features an Italian theme but accommodates all types of pallet’s. The food is consistently good but definitely not cheap. Do not miss the croissants, the anti pasti, and the great schnitzel.

A visit to Neve Tzedek

Neve Tzedek (Oasis of Justice) is one of the most unique neighborhoods in Tel Aviv. Located on the southern side of the city, this beautiful neighborhood has become one of the trendiest spots in town and yet somehow has retained its old school charm.

Its main road, Shabazi street, is lined with cafes, wine bars, clothing and jewelry boutiques, art galleries, and at its edge lies one of Tel Aviv cultural icons – The Susan Dallal Center for performing arts.

Over the past decade, Neve Tzedek has undergone a renaissance. Once a poor neighborhood, it is now one of the most expensive places to live in the city. The proximity to the beach and Rothschild Blvd, the picturesque low rise architecture, and its overall chic, have driven Neve Tzedek to become The place everyone wants to live in and visit.

The best time to visit the neighborhood is during the week (IE not Saturday when everything is closed). Come in the mood for a slow stroll and make sure to venture between the streets not just on Shabazi.

The neighborhood is also full of history and many guides offer walking tours of the area. Definitely worth a try.

If its in your budget there are a few boutique hotels in Neve Tzedek. The Varsano, Neve Zedek Hotel, and Nina. You can also check out some short term rentals in the area on Airbnb.com
