The Left-Handed Chef feels more like your grandparents’ living room than a cafe. Look for the grandfather clock, antique photo frames and handmade tea cosies hugging teapots.

For seven years the Left-Handed Chef was a breakfast-focused cafe. But in 2019 owner Ehud Malka decided to change things up. Now the main attraction is dinner.

Malka’s Israeli heritage is evident in his signature dishes. Try the hummus bowls, pita pockets or large share platters. Every falafel is shaped and made to order.

For something sweet at the end of your meal, classic options such as baklava and rugelach (a pastry typically filled with raisins and walnuts) are popular options.

The memorable service here means fresh customers quickly become familiar ones. And yes, the chef is left-handed.
