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:

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.

This bakery’s location and extended opening hours can suit whether you are on your way to northern Israel (48 Attractions on the way to Northern Israel) or visiting nearby places, like Zikhron Ya’akov and Ramat HaNadiv.
