You probably expect that Israeli eateries will be serving up savory hummus or sweet rugelach, but you can also find the unexpected – cinnamon bun bakeries, British high tea, and more.
1. Red Velvet Bakery, 9 Ibn Gvirol Street, Tel Aviv
Americans pining away for Magnolia-caliber cupcakes can breathe a deep sigh of relief. Red Velvet is a Tel Aviv sweet shop with a cult following that will fulfil your desire for American treats (and who isn’t dreaming of a unicorn cupcake or a whoopee pie every once in a while?).
The shop is owned by Israeli Sharon Blumenfeld, who fell in love with American sweets while studying for a law degree in New York and wanted to quell her cravings at home in Israel. If you ask us, she’s doing the job well. So, whether you take your cupcakes decorated for the 4th of July or for Israeli Independence Day (or both!), Red Velvet should be on your wish list for your next White City sweet fix.
