One of my favorite things in Tel Aviv is that many cafes are laptop friendly, and in the Old North, the neighborhood I live in, Java is the perfect spot for people looking for a cool relaxed vibe to get work done.
Java, a timeout Tel Aviv winner for best cafe in the Old North neighborhood of Tel Aviv, hosts locals that wish to have a cocktail or a shake after spending the day at the beach (which is just a five minute walk); internationals that are looking for an English-speaking, friendly spot, and neighbors such as myself that enjoy working remotely.
The staff knows me by name and know my preferred food and beverage, which makes me feel right at home. Every time I sit here, I see a few other regulars and we often share a table and work together!
The burgers at Java are great and the alcohol menu is tax-free, which makes this place perfect for day drinkers, or actually any-time drinkers: Java turns into a happening bar at night, with a wide selection of snacks and sharing plates.
Java might get busy during the weekends (Friday and Saturday) so make sure to drop by in the afternoon when it is less busy and enjoy the sunset in this surfers-style decor cafe!
