Ima Cuisine

For a taste of Eastern-Mediterranean delights in the central city

The delicious Eastern Mediterranean food offering here is crafted and inspired by the food Yael (the owner) grew up with in Tel Aviv, Israel. It is driven by seasonal produce, and of course the desires of their beloved customers, continuing the natural, slow food mantra that takes pride of place at Ima.

Taking a seat in the deli you will immediately be transfixed by the evocative smells from the kitchen. Everything here is made fresh daily in the deli and the result is a room filled with the aroma of freshly baked pastries, spiced brioche, scones and slices. Not to mention the cured and smoked meats and rotisserie chicken that will have your olfactory switched on and ready to devour.

 A key note on the breakfast menu is the Israeli style breakfast menu, made up of tapas style delights that are best enjoyed with friends over a long breakfast of chatting and nibbling away. A lunch favourite is the chicken soup, made from Yael’s grandmother’s recipe, along with the Brick Lane salt beef sandwich, Ima’s take on the traditional Rueben sandwich.

Ima Deli is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
