This revamped laundry-mat/café is more than just a place to get your whites whiter.

HaMachvasah has been a cornerstone of Haifa’s Hadar community for the past 4.5 years.  A place to see and be seen, with feel-good music and an eclectic menu that changes according to owner Eyal Halfa’s mood, it’s also a great place to get a rockin’ homemade Israeli breakfast, made fresh to order. Imagine a mini loaf of pillowy enriched white bread, alongside diced Israeli salad, hand-chopped guacamole, homemade pesto over sour cream, apple confiture, Israeli staple cheeses and a chunk of good old-fashioned butter just for you. Served with flavorful and mildly spiced eggs of your choice, the breakfast is best enjoyed with one of the café’s fresh-pressed juices, or fruit shakes (an additional NIS 8) made from the neighboring shuk’s best produce. Also worth trying are the many different hot and cold specialty drinks listed on their chalkboard menus (they offer chai lattes and sahlav among additional coffee and ice-cream based milkshake options). Colorful shelves, bottle caps, coasters and other trinkets make this friendly space a one-of-a-kind spot.
