Cafe Baccioby Tallie Lieberman | 27.10.16
Cafe Baccio – a stark and silent escape from the chaotic hubbub of King George in downtown Tel Aviv – is misunderstood.
Belonging to the basement bars and smoky coffee houses of Greenwich Village in its ’60s heyday, Baccio is a throwback to a bygone era when customers ordered coffee – black – and were satisfied. In a landscape of cafes brandishing overly ambitious menus to sate the modern eater’s every whim, Spartan Baccio is a welcome retreat from choice.
Order any of the excellent sandwiches, prepared daily, or, if you’re waxing nostalgic, the plate of blintzes – they are (seriously) just as good as your great aunt Esther’s. Cradle your fine cup of Joe, brood a bit and enjoy the sound of silence.
Cafe Baccio, 85 King George St., (03)528-9753.
