[dropcap]I[/dropcap]n the heart of the city, 200 meters from one of the most hectic junctions of Tel Aviv, you can find small, local corners of magic and sanity. One of those places is a charming coffee shop called “the house of Columns”.
Named after the old structure it’s in, “the house of Columns” rests on rambam st. no. 14, just by the corner of nahalat Binyamin.
[quote style=”boxed” float=”right”]On the calming balcony, you can feast your eyes on the people passing from and to the market, while having a coffee, a freshly diced Arabic salad, or a beer.[/quote]
The mornings can start with a nice shakshuka breakfast and a tasteful jazz playlist and as the day goes by you can come for a beer and some Israeli tapas at sunset and feel the energy of the night arrive.
The menu, all vegetarian, makes the place good for kosher eaters, and offers everything homemade and simple, starting with good Mediterranean breakfasts and salads, toasts, lasagna, small thina or eggplant salad tapas, freshly squeezed juices and cakes.
On Tuesdays and Fridays the place is always vivid with colors as Nahalat Binyamin hosts the arts and crafts fair, and Saturday evenings have their unique magic as the week is about to commence.
The house of columns offers diversity mixed with friendly service and a neighborly vibe and can always be a nice place to rest your feet, and fill your stomach.
The experience changes by the time and day but one thing is for sure…its always a pleasant one.
“the house of columns”, rambam st. no. 14.
Opened sunday – Thursday 10:00-01:00
Friday until sunset and from Saturday at 19:00.
