About Shenkin

Shenkin - Middle Eastern Cafe & Restaurant - Sydney, Inner West, Order Online



We value having a place to call home no matter where we may find ourselves. For us, that means a warm nourishing meal that doesn’t break the budget, with lovingly made coffee and pastries, all served up in a fun space with a caring team that treat you like an old friend.


At Shenkin, we use quality local ingredients to create family recipes passed down from our Israeli and European heritage, accompanied by a few modern twists and a great cup of coffee, just like you’d find on Shenkin St in Tel Aviv.


Everything is made fresh daily in store or at our bakery in Erskineville by our talented and diverse team. Our delicious signature coffee blend is sourced through Crop to Cup’s green bean buying programme.


Each Shenkin is tailored to suit your local area. We love hearing your suggestions and giving you a new taste to try!

Our Story

The Story of Shenkin and our Family

Born into hospitality, Arie Haikin started working at the family’s bakery in 1970 at age 13. Arie mastered the art of baking and developed a deep passion for food which he wanted to share with the world. After years of experience in the industry, Arie decided to move to Australia with his wife Bosmat and their four sons Ben, Din, Bar and Yaar.


Arie opened Cafe Shenkin (named after the famous street in Tel-Aviv, Israel) in 2007 to bring his unique flavours and creations to the people of Sydney. It wasn’t long until his sons joined the family business, sharing the same passions as their dad and developing a new passion for the art of coffee.


This combination of family history, traditional Middle Eastern food, European pastries and a modern flair of coffee that makes Shenkin cafe what it is today.
