Hendler Grocery Store
The grocery store is not big, and besides the bakery, it offers the standard departments, like fruit and vegetables, and others. You can also purchase prepared food.
Near the cashiers, you can find fridges with ice cream and desserts made in the bakery.
There are restrooms near the store (about 10 meters north of the entrance).
Shlomo Naor Viewpoint
There are no sitting places in the grocery store. Thus after purchasing, you have several options. You can sit on the grass near the roundabout. You can also sit on one of the nearby benches. And the last alternative is to visit the nearby viewpoint.
If you walk about 30 meters to the north from the store entry, then you will see this bench:
If you continue for two minutes along the paved road, then you will reach Shlomo Naor viewpoint.
As you can see, there is a shade and a great view. Thus if you purchase some pastry, this is an excellent spot to enjoy the meal.
Here are several photos from the viewpoint:
We tasted small pastries, bread, and cakes at Hendler Bakery. Everything was tasty. I should mention that the ingredients were sometimes unexpected. Salty pastry and bread often include blue cheese. Hence, if you are not a fan, read the labels carefully.
