Time Out says
Gal Gavrieli wears his heart on his sleeve, and it shows in this bakery/café’s scrumptious offerings.
Settle into the intimate setting, open up a newspaper and soak in the smooth hypnotic jazz music. Eat alfresco in the back garden and you will forget that you are in a busy city center. Gal’s Israeli breakfast is suited for the baker at heart, offering a basket of freshly baked treats, ranging from different breads, rolls to puff pastry twists, and a bonus mini chocolate swirl. The pampering continues with a tuna tartelette, fluffy eggs done as you like, salad with herb-marinated tzfatit cheese, and an endless array of spreads (whipped butter, sundried tomato, tahini, labane, and rich cream cheese). Spreads are accompanied by a sesame-coated goat’s cheese round, hand-selected green and black olives, and homemade jam. A highlight for anyone with a sweet tooth will surely be the ball of dark chocolate ganache, ready to be spread onto your bread (and licked out of its porcelain dish when heads are turned). Savory fans will be intrigued by the salty granola and cooked mezze options of stewed eggplant and winter greens sautéed with onions. High quality Italian coffee and English breakfast tea leave you feeling well taken care of as you ponder how many of the locally famous yeast dough pastries you will be purchasing to take home for later.
