Cafes in Tel Aviv are about as common a the alley cats that have become unwanted mascots of the city. The beauty of this Central European-inspired cafe culture is that each venue has its own unique personality and characteristic attributes. Location, staff, menu, music, and a countless other factors generate amazing diversity, and the perfect topic of discussion for the opinionated locals.
Yet every so often a cafe emerges as a fan favourite, so much so that it attempts to do the unthinkable and franchise out. Malevolent comparisons to Starbucks aside, Loveat has become a powerful player in the coffee game, with three uniformly convenient branches in Tel Aviv, and a constant presence at events and social gatherings.
Offering an organic-based menu of hot and cold dishes, free Wi-Fi and a great cup of coffee, the Loveat formula is simple and catchy. The Nachalat Binyamin branch is especially genial, with a charming backyard and a quieter second floor perfect for writing assignments and extra long novels.
