Everyday of the week is a good day to brunch. In Tel Aviv, the delight of brunching is not exclusive to weekends. This is evident in the consistent attendance at Tel Aviv’s cafes every day of the week. Of course, brunching on eggs Florentine one sunny Saturday at the debonair Hotel Montefiore or indulging in a banquet-sized lavish brunch tray at the exquisite Claro in the Sarona complex, are excellent weekend activities, but why discriminate against the other days of the week? There’s nothing quite like a Tuesday brunch; sneak a break from your busy day and head to Cafe Nachmani and enjoy a hefty ‘Pizetta Morning’ laden with mozzarella, feta, goats cheese, spinach and eggs.

If you so desire; brunch is available at any given hour of the day, or night. Craving perfectly runny cream-drenched eggs Benedict with salmon or fluffy pancakes slathered in maple syrup, sprinkled with powdered sugar and berries at 2AM? No problem, just head on out to Benedict’s (at either of its locations around the city). Also, if you would like, you can have your eggs, tuna, bread and orange juice brunch-combo for dinner facing the White city’s esteemed Habima theatre at Nechama VaHetzi. But if it’s a bacon-heavy bagel bonanza craving in the afternoon, you will find what you need at Nola American Bakery.
