Such a great experience. Always consistent with wireless quality, service, costs and amount of food. So healthy and delicious. Certainly one of the best places to eat in the North

We went there in early September 2017. The Israeli food served here was good, rather authentic in nature. The pricing of the food is reasonable and service was terrific. Do drop by this cafe for nice Israeli food.

My daughter and I set out for a late lunch. We decided to try the highly recommended Fat Camel. It was awesome, the staff really care about their food and service. It's a quirky little spot and the food was fresh, filling and tasty.

A restaurant worth repeat visits. Vegetarian choices are plenty. One of the best falafel serving places. Falafel wrap is yummy. Actually, one is spoilt for choice. Friendly staff. 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. - 7 days a week. Moderately priced. Family friendly.
