French Country Decor and The Classic European Cafe

6779_sm

While I normally prefer modern style interiors, Mazzarine at 42 Montefiori Street makes me really appreciate French Country because it’s done so perfectly here. I couldn’t say enough about this cafe’s wonderful meals, coffee, and deserts especially, but this is after all a design blog.

I love  how well it fits in with the surrounding neighborhood—classic Tel Aviv Eclectic Style buildings, quaint urban gardens, and shady streets. Once inside the front door you can walk through room after room of ornate chandeliers, solid comfortable seating, and delightfully tasteful decorations.

The cafe was furnished by the antiques shop called Gavrieli (formerly Gavriel), which used to run it along with the store behind its garden. Recently they moved the store to Shabazi Street in Neve Tzedek, but their legacy at 42 Montefiori is beautiful. I love the garden and the way they always have large bouquets of fresh cut flowers inside.
