This hugely popular little café serves genuine Israeli food—hummus, the tomateoy stew that’s known as shakshuka, grilled haloumi and more—in a cheery if cramped setting. The food is all terrifically fresh and the service is speedy, so this is a great place to head if you want a sit-down meal, but one that will last less than an hour.
