Idelsohn 10 is chain of 4 coffee shops (none of them on Idelsohn Street). Although we have one right by our home (Witzman) we decided to take advantage of a sunny Saturday to bike up until the far Ben Yehuda Street. This place is one of the most popular coffee places in Tel Aviv and every time we got there until that day – we skipped the pleasure of waiting and went to one of the other nearby places. That time we woke up late – so when we arrived we had a sitting place right away.
Shahar took the Croque-Madame – a toast with ham & Gouda cheese topped with a fried egg. Good classic dish but not an outstanding one (to our disappointment). Inbar took the Brioche filled with spinach and yolk, topped with Gouda cheese as well. This was not what we expected; it was a good course but filled with too much Gouda. Thus the dish felt a bit too fat. Both of the dishes were served with a green salad yet we replaced one of these salads with a chopped vegetables salad for an additional 10 NIS.
The “cherry on the cake” of that visit was their bakery – Idelsohn has a counter inside their coffee place with all their goods. Since we have a weakness for Macaroons cookies we didn’t have any other choice but to order a plate of Macaroons – we got a plate with 5 Macaroons in different colors – they were quite good and crispy. We especially recommend you to take the white one that had a taste of some kind of liquor. We ended the breakfast with 2 excellent cappuccinos.
