Haifa – Places to eat and drink!

Let’s get delicious! I’m kicking off this post with a place called Cafe Louise. After visiting I found out that they have several stores around Israel so even if you don’t go to Haifa you might be able to check them out! They are a vegan/vegetarian friendly place with the most ridiculous menu. I felt like I was back in New York as the amount of juices, salads and concoctions they offer is wonderful. The one in Haifa is a little walk from the top of the mountain (we went before heading to the gardens). Pictured above is the Light Breakfast and Light Vegan. They consist of an array of sauces/dips, breads, couscous salad, mixed vegetable salad, poached eggs and cereal/sweet potato patties. The amount of food for the price is crazy and everything was fresh, tasty and super healthy. Drinks wise we got two fruit juices – green and orange, and I got a tahini shake with banana, dates and tahini – delicious! The waiters were friendly and the vibe of the place was very pinterest with love hearts and wooden prints all over the cafe. I’d without a doubt recommend it but make sure you show up hungry!

On Masada Street there are tons of querky cafes and bars to check out. We went into Elika (I think it was called that) and decided to sit outside. The vibe was very trendy with graffiti/posters on the walls and Charlie Chaplin on the bathroom door. We grabbed a ‘light snack’ but really it filled us up for dinner. The laffa wraps are to die for, I got the avocado one with salad and on the side were some vegetables and olives.

Fattoush is in the German Colony and a great place for a sunny day as the outside area is really nice. There are bells, lights, candles, strings galore and it feels very bohemian gypsy. We just got drinks here and went for the fresh limonana. The food menu sounded really great as well, so if you’re peckish and wandering round check them out.

I don’t know how easy or accessible this next place is as I went there on a tour and it was a little out of Haifa but I have to mention it! We went to a nearby Druze Village and there a family served us a feast of delights. Excuse the sloppy photography as I was just too excited to eat it. There were different kinds of bread, kebabs, vine leaves with rice, more rice and noodles, aubergine, salads and more! I find all the buffet/tapas-esque places in Israel are always incredible and the family were very hospitable and sweet. The father gave us a talk afterwards about the Druze people and it was really interesting to know that they serve in the army as well!

I hope this wet your appetite and got you a little hungry! If you missed my previous posts on what to see and do in Haifa you can see them here and here. Coming in a few days I go south to the bad boy of Tel Aviv!
