Etnachta is famous for its brunch style breakfasts, served from morning till noon. These rich breakfasts include different types of eggs, zucchini and sweet potato pancakes, Labaneh, salad freshly cut on location, homemade jams, farm cheeses and fresh bread
Prior to the Second Lebanon War the Etnachta Café and Gallery, dwelt in an abandoned chicken coop in the courtyard of Sharon and Naomi Rotem’s parents’ house.
The place was very successful; however, the Second Lebanon War begunand the Rotem sisters were compelled to close their chicken coop venue. In its stead they opened a store of ornaments at the Penguin coffee compound in Nahariya. Coerced by old customers who missed Etnachta’s famous breakfasts, the Rotem sisters decided to reopen Etnachta in its new current location; in the south of Nahariya. Success was instantaneous; old customers returned, and were soon joined by Nahariyans who became enthusiastic and were followed by residents from the general vicinity. Owners of local guest rooms came to have a cup of coffee and a sandwich, and at the same time purchased ornaments for their accommodations. The items in the various guest rooms aroused the interest of guests and they came to Etnachta following their hosts’ recommendation. Thus, the little amiable place, offering breakfasts and light meals while selling ornaments, furniture, light fixtures, bags, hats, pieces of jewelry, pictures, cushions and a variety of infant items, became a favorite meeting place for Nahariya residents and outsider guests alike.
The place is attractive and friendly. Visitors may sit around low table and benches under a parasol outside the Café Gallery or at the heart of the gallery; scattered with wooden tables and chairs and centered with a large bar, behind which Sharon and Naomi Rotem, in full view of their customers, prepare breakfast and other courses from the cafe’s dairy menu.
