Israeli breakfast is a term known to any tourist who has ever visited the country. The extravaganza of all breakfasts includes, and is not limited to, eggs any style, shakshuka, chopped salad, roasted eggplant, tahini, avocado salad, pickles, lox and herring, fresh and hard cheeses, breads and pita, babka and danishes and excellent coffee (an Israeli obsession).

Whether it is served on long buffet tables at hotel dining rooms or on a tray filled with mini ramekins directly to your table at a restaurant, the breakfast is not to be missed, although sightseeings after such meal is not an easy task. Learn from Israelis and indulge in such breakfast on lazy days only, such as Friday morning.
