The Well Known Israeli Breakfast
Israel is well known for its rich and fresh breakfast. Same as there is a 'Continental Breakfast' there is also the coin for 'Israeli Breakfast'. The breakfast usually includes chopped salad made by fresh vegetables, assorted cheese from the Golan and the Galilee (known for its creamy and rich texture, made of sheep milk), variety of olives, dairy products such as goat and sheep soft cheese and yogurts, different kinds of fresh baked bread, coffee/tea and freshly squeezed orange juice. Some of the hotels are well known for their great buffet (highly recommended is Mamilla Hotel in Jerusalem which offers a variety and all types of breakfast) and there is a restaurant brand called 'Benedict' which serves different kinds of breakfasts all day long, 24 hours. You can get an Israeli breakfast, French breakfast, all kinds of omelets and even bacon and cheese for a breakfast meal.
