[Brunch: Arts Café] Brunch on the eastern side of town

When it comes to its brunch, Arts Café needs no more introductions.

A charming local business, supporting local artists and farmers, Arts Café is well liked by the hip and the bohemian on the eastern side of town. The menu features seasonal ingredients, often presented with great simplicity and always in generous portions.

Cousin quickly singled out the Shakshuka ($12). Much more elegant than those you’d find in the streets of Tel-Aviv, Arts Café’s variant delivered on the earthy and comfort feeling of the dish. Served in a hot skillet, the runny egg happily mingled with the tomato sauce – if only it came with a piece of bread to scoop up every last bit of it!

As for myself, I hesitated between the breakfast poutine and the goat cheese salad – finally choosing the healthier option ($14). Mixed with beans, crunchy broccolini, pinches of fried quinoa and a coulis of balsamic vinegar, the salad, fresh, did justice to every ingredient.

If you’re planning on paying Arts Café a visit during the weekend, get there early because it gets crowded fast. If the sun permits, take over the terrace.
