Basma Coffee is a great stop for breakfast. It is a nice spot to relax and people watch while enjoying a great cup of coffee along with a delicious breakfast. It is a family-owned café and breakfast here will cost you around $13.


There are numerous street shows in Tel Aviv that will cost you nothing and let you enjoy both new and well-established talents. The Nahalat Binyamin artisan market is a famous spot for street shows. The market itself is full of arts and crafts and you will frequently find musicians performing there. There’s also a free petting zoo on the edge of Park Hayarkon for kids.


Like many other places in the Middle East, Tel Aviv has a delicious variety of street food options. Jaffa’s Ali Karavam Abu Hassan’s hummus palace has some of the best hummus in the world and will cost no more than $6.


After lunch, partake in the people’s of Tel Aviv’s favorite pastime, walking around. It is a small city with great markets and many picturesque streets. Walking around and getting lost in Nave Zedek or one of the great markets Tel Aviv has to offer is the perfect way to spend an afternoon.


Tony ve Esther’s dining room is sprawled across a small street between the two buildings it operates; one is a bar and the other is the kitchen. They make delicious shakshuka, salads, schnitzels and curries. Most of the dishes here cost less than $14.


There are some great happy hours throughout the city, but the most obscene is Salon Berlin’s, which lasts until 1 a.m. Dizzy Frishdon’s happy hour deal is a 50 percent discount on all alcohol with more discounts on food; it runs until 2 a.m.
