Within the notable and increasingly accomplished culinary setting of Tel Aviv, the bakery scene holds its own, even when compared to its European neighbors who are often considered to be the pastry experts of the world. From the traditional Israeli bourekas to croissants, biscuits and cakes. Here are the top spots for finding baked treats.
Tucked away in the Susanne Dallal quarter, in the quaint and chic neighborhood of Neve Tsedek, sits the appropriately named Dallal Bakery. The establishment is known for both its magical tea-party interior as well as its dreamy treats. Although the goods may be slightly pricier than your local pastry shop, none of the pastries disappoint. In addition, the highly recommended and more upscale adjacent Dallal restaurant allows diners to sit for something savoury.
