For a decade now, the Benedict brand has been carving out a respectable niche in the greater metropolitan Tel Aviv restaurant market, starting in the heart of the big city and expanding northward to Herzliya and southward to Rishon Lezion. The latest franchise has just opened in Kfar Saba, and it replicates the small chain’s winning formula: serving tempting dishes suitable for eating morning, noon or night.
The restaurant’s creativity begins with the list of brunch cocktails: five varieties of mimosa and six other mixed drinks. The alcohol menu – available in multiple languages, like the food and dessert menus – also opens a window on Benedict’s reasonable prices. The most expensive are NIS 29, about the lowest price for a cocktail I’ve seen in the country. A complimentary mimosa (or a premium cocktail for NIS 9) is included with the order of certain brunch dishes.
