British restaurants in Middle East
- Sort by:
This place was opened when the British Mandate was still in effect and the atmosphere hasn't changed much since those heady days.
Owner Sarah Stern (who has been in charge since 1955) can still be found at the café, gabbing with her customers about her days spent serving in the British army. Her specialty, half a bagel with cheese, a hard boiled egg and salad has been the cornerstone dish for half a century. The crowd is a mix of old-timers and neighbourhood intellectual types. Visit on Friday to watch some serious chess matches.
