I'm not a big fan of coffee shops, nor am I a fan of hipster infested places, venues packed with people aching to be seen or just trendy spots.
Eating is something I rather do without people staring at me and talking loudly around me.
I also dislike long queues.
All of the above are a great reason to avoid Habima Neighborhood Café, but they have so much amazing sandwiches that I just couldn't.
The sandwiches change on a daily basis, but follow a similar line. There are "bite" sizes (cheap and still big enough), grilled cheese sandwiches with meats and vegetables, all sorts of cheeses and cuts, salads and other interesting twists.
The ingredients vary depending on availability and creativity of the staff.
I'll try to cover as much sandwiches as possible, but until then, here's a starter:
|.Jambon, cheese, mustard, mayo and arugula|
I took my chance with this one since I'm not a big fan of mayo, it was really worth it.
The sandwich was on the cold side (Cafe Habima have three temperature levels: fresh, cold and grilled), but still, the flavors were amazing and the temperature was just right.
The cheese was of a Swiss variety (they usually indicate what cheese is used but not this time), and the jambon was crispy and flavorful. Fresh leaves and just enough spreads to keep the sandwich moist but to not wet the sweet bun. A great experience.
A moment of honesty: I took the sandwich and ate it on a very remote bench.
Amazing sandwiches are still not a good enough reason for me to suffer while eating.
More to follow soon.
