One of the newer places to eat here in Jeddah has become the cafe/eatery type restaurants. Basically very cutely decorated dining atmospheres that serve up all the things a cafe would have, so extensive coffee and tea menus, as well as huge glass cases filled with delectable pastries and desserts. They often have a good sized breakfast/lunch menu that can be easily eaten throughout the day; an assortment of soups, sandwiches, salads etc. Read more
BOGA SUPERFOODS is Jeddah’s answer to healthy eating. As well as mine to be truthfully honest, it’s been hard eating healthy post-baby and it only makes it harder when all you want is something to fill you up. I know all the gibberish that comes with healthy eating, macros, vegan, plant-based blah blah. Basically everyone has a take on what is healthy, I’ll settle with simple fresh food that hasn’t been overly processed. That is exactly what BOGA offers, and with the looks of it people are enjoying it. There is always a line out the door when we come (which is often) and the food always seems to satisfy. Read more
You can find pretty much anything you crave here in Jeddah. Have an urge for Indian or even Thai? Mexican or Turkish? Arabic or Western?, no problem. The biggest scene here in Jeddah has to be the dining scene with restaurant outnumbering any other type of business. That being said find amazing, delectable, to be fair even good food good be challenging. The reason? For starters, somethings are best made by natives of that country. That being said with the endless number of Pizzerias, here in Jeddah you can only imagine there aren’t many italians here. Not saying that italians are the only people who should be making pizza, but let’s be honest when they are making the pizza it some darn good pizza. Read more
If you don’t speak hashtag then this trendy breakfast spot has probably been under your radar. The exclusively breakfast/brunch spot caters to the public here in Jeddah looking for a place to grab a bite to eat in the early morning hours. It is a very trendy spot with a huge instagram following and #hashtags adorning the place. The restaurant is only open between 6:20 am -2pm everyday including Friday! Our recent and first visit to the restaurant was nice, we arrived at around 1pm and scanned the menu quickly. We chose a few different plates including a classic pancake topped with fruit, the Arab trio breakfast platter, a smoked turkey club sandwich and finished it off with a refreshing lemon iced tea and cup of tea.

Finally a cafe I can swoon over, here in Jeddah. This place is a real life Instagram pic. So beautiful and carefully laid out, a place where you can relax and enjoy your self. I’ve seen this cafe a couple of weeks ago and just through the windows I was adamant to check it-out. Yet, my luck was that it had yet to open. Luckily a few days ago, while in the area I decided to check again and happily found it open for service.
Note to all cafes in Jeddah, please hire BAFARAT interior designers. I can’t tell you how much I fell in love with the place. The seating was beautiful and more importantly comfortable. A place that took advantage of the endless sunshine Jeddah has to offer with floor to ceiling windows. Just sitting back enjoying a cup of coffee in beautiful surroundings. If you have no care for interiors, trust me their coffee is pretty darn good as well. Read more
