Notes:
Avoid Euronet ATMs at tourist sites. Use bank ATMs. Always decline the "exchange guarantee" the ATM operator is offering you, choose local currency, your own bank will have a better exchange rate than what the ATM is offering you. The ATM "exchange guarantee" is a scam and hidden fee that should be avoided.

The new Dairy place is called 'Tel Aviv cafe' food is not bad, long wait time, and quite expensive. But It's basicly the only choice for coffee or breakfest. The Fleishig places  are great.

Carimama is open according to their website. We ate there 2 years ago. פת ישראל
prices were decent.

Enjoy! Im sure you read my TR so I won't bother repeating myself here. It's a very beautiful and unlike prague it's a very relaxing city to walk around (the old city that is.) Wish I was in europe now. You going to another cities?

Btw the shliach who's office is right behind the front desk on the left is really helpful and nice.
We're can I find this TR?
