Breakfast at Tel Aviv's Norman Hotel | Waking Up in Style

Updated: 2 November 2016
Breakfast at the upmarket Norman Hotel, one of Tel Aviv’s newest boutique hotels, is the perfect start to the day. An exotic, freshly squeezed fruit juice, a rich breakfast with mouthwatering pastries washed down by an excellent cup of coffee – it’s impossible to want for more. We delve in and explore.

The Norman is Tel Aviv’s latest boutique hotel, located on a quiet street not far from the business district and a few steps away from one of the city’s first boutique hotel, Hotel Montefiore.

Open for less than a year, the hotel itself oozes understated elegance and whilst sitting on the patio, you might be excused if you thought you had miraculously landed in a Mediterranean garden somewhere in the south of France. Attractively arranged beds of fragrant lavender greet you as you ascend the steps to the hotel’s entrance.

Getting a reservation for breakfast is not an easy feat, especially when the hotel is fully booked. Understandably hotel guests get preference, but you might just get lucky.

The breakfast menu offers a selection of alcoholic drinks, unique fruit juice combinations, (try the apple and ginger), as well as the usual tea and coffee selection.

Other items on the menu include: granola, bircher muesli, cured herring, fresh fruit, omelettes with various fillings, smoked salmon with scrambled eggs and wholegrain toast, an Israeli breakfast consisting of a tomato salad, a selection of cheeses and eggs to order, French toast, eggs Benedict, eggs Florentine or eggs Royale, English breakfast or a selection of pastries. All of these are elegantly presented in keeping with the general ambiance.

The sundrenched patio is beautifully laid out with tables, chairs and oversized chesterfield couches which run the length of the patio, interspersed by large sun umbrellas and some of the most beautiful bonsai trees in the region. The surroundings are certainly conducive to long lazy breakfasts. The patio provides a true island of tranquility, as far from the hustle and bustle of Tel Aviv as you could imagine. Given that both trendy Rothschild Boulevard and grungy Allenby Street are only a five minute walk in opposite directions, this is indeed a hidden oasis.

In addition, the hotel offers a rooftop restaurant, open for dinner only, with glorious views of Tel Aviv and a cosy library bar with a great selection of cocktails – just perfect for unwinding after a long hard day at the beach, the shops or the office!
