What do you get when you mix an Israeli pastry chef who
won a reality TV show in the US and his American husband who recently
moved to Israel with him? The answer is Christopher's, a very charming cosy cafe in the heart of Jaffa's flea market.
the popular reality show "Sweet Genius," working with some of the top
chefs in the US, and travelling around the world for various exclusive
cooking events, it would have been fitting for Amos Hayon to open a top
scale restaurant or upmarket cake shop upon his return to Israel.
Instead, the very humble and talented pastry chef decided to open the
relaxed and informal Christopher's.
Amos runs the coffee shop
with his life partner Christopher, after whom the coffee shop is named.
The two recently moved back to Israel from the US and decided to open
the business together so that Amos could show off his cooking and baking
skills while Christopher could put his charm and front of house
experience to good use.Cafe Christopher
