What could be better than wandering around the flea market in Jaffa and enjoying the sights and smells? On a beautiful Friday morning I ventured out to Jaffa to wander the flea market and streets. Jaffa is an interesting mix of old and new, funky artist shop, ruins, and of course, a view of the Tel Aviv shoreline. The day was capped off by an excellent brunch at Yaffo Caffe and Gelato. I had the pizza for lunch and finished off with ice cream. Both the meal and dessert were excellent. My husband had shakshuka which was not as memorable but the brownie for dessert was. The service was great and sitting by the window and people watching could not be beat!
As an aside, every Wednesday morning there is a free walking tour of Jaffa that focuses on the history of the city from ancient times. Meet at the Jaffa clock tower at 9:30 AM.
