Cafe Mersand has been a Tel Avivan fixture since it first opened its doors in 1955. Mersand’s legendary atmosphere is embedded in its eclectic range of clientele — from old to young, businessmen to musicians, locals and tourists — visitors can be found sipping on coffee and dining on modern comfort food from the cafe’s menu while reading a newspaper or engaging in discussion with friends among the cafe’s classic European decor.
Bacio Gelateria, Mersand’s ‘sister store’, is a recent addition adjacent to the cafe, integrating into the spot’s authentic charm. Bacio Mersand’s expert owners focus on distributing the right ingredients in their ice cream shop — homemade Belgian waffles, classic Italian ice cream flavors like espresso, Jandoya and tiramisu, non dairy options, specialty drinks and homemade toppings!
Both locations are distinct in their attention to simplicity, quality and balance, and always maintain a familial spirit with old and new customers, making sure they are satisfied.
