Said Abu Elafia & Sons

Bakery in Jaffa

Jaffa’s first bakery was established in 1880 and, four generations down the line, the Abu Elafia family is busier than ever. The main attractions are its giant sambusas (filled pastries), bourekas (stuffed breads with sheep’s cheese) and a unique Arab oven-baked, pizza-like concoction filled with eggs, tomato, cheese and olives. Take-out only.

Members of the family run another branch on the seafront.
