Hidden in a side alley off Yafo St. sits this cute little cafe with much more to offer than just a latte. Metaphora is the perfect study spot with space inside and outside, chill ambiance, and kind staff.
In addition, they offer one on one and group sessions that work as a sort of art therapy. Over a cup of tea or coffee the staff will help you work through any decision or problem you are struggling with. Reserve a workshop on their website by clicking here.
Yifat and her son Amit own the cafe together. Yifat keeps gluten free at home for stomach issues and thus she is very understanding of allergies. They have spelt sandwiches and cookies for those who like to cut down their gluten intake as well as certified gluten free cookies and crackers.
Their cheese and veggie plate comes with gluten free rice cakes and they are working on making sure they use gluten free spices so their soup is safe too!
Highly recommend as a place to sit and study or for a workshop!
** Update: Since I visited for the first time in January, Metaphora has become my home away from home. I even launched my business, JLM Social, at one of their outside tables and I have client meetings there weekly. It is the kind of cafe where they really know every regulars name and make you feel like family.
