The Old Zichron Station

The Old Station of Zichron was first built by the turkish and rebuilt by the british in 1946; today is reopened as an exciting new coffee shop and nursery. The menu offers healthy and organic food which is based on local ingredients as much as possible. Workshops are also available teaching people about ecology, organic gardening, green building, recycling etc.

In 2009, Graham Eskin, a landscape designer and gardener from Australia discovered the old abandoned train station of Zichron and saw the potential to establish a small mashtella and ecological centre. After many months of hard work and negotiations with the relevant authorities, Graham began to re-establish the old gardens using ecological plants and gardening techniques. Together with Gershon Richie, an ecological builder based in Benyamina, they began renovations on the interior as well exterior. 2 years on, the station is now breathing a new life as a working organic mashtella, garden centre and organic cafe. The old building, the beautiful gardens, the passing trains, flowers, the colours and smells, all merging together creating a special atmosphere.

The old station provides exciting workshops for children and adults, teaching art and crafts using recycled materials, methods of ecological gardening, composting and vegetable/herb growing.

Come and visit us and experience the magic of the place.

Open from 9.30 Sunday – Friday.

Fun Place! Like a Secret Road Stop!
I highly recommend Thursday nights. Sometimes it's a great concert, other times it is more intimate. Pizza is great too!

Classic venue in Zichron Yaacov
The Old Station in Zichron Yaacov is a great place to meet friends and hang. It's got that pub atmosphere and has a bit of history behind it as well which adds to the nice ambience. If you have a passion for gardening, there are organic plants for sale on the grounds.

The staff is friendly and there is good food and drink. Depending on the night, they have live music too.

A charming place located in the Old Train Station - the place has a laid back atmosphere and if you go on Thursday nights, they usually have music (with cover charge).

Great food, great wine, great music. You don't need more than that. Very friendly staff too.
Bad Points
Could use a wider selection at the bar, but what they do have is good. Also, you need to make reservations on a Thursday night.
