Whether you are starting your day or needing a little pick-me-up to get you through the afternoon, nothing beats a good cup of coffee to reset your mind and give you that boost of caffeine-fuelled energy.

Butterfly Café

Butterfly Cafe in the south of Riyadh is one of our favourite coffee shops in the city. The coffee is fantastic, the pastries are great, and the vibe is even better. Order the mini doughnuts and a cotton candy coffee. It’s the perfect place to set up shop for the day with your laptop or go for a work meeting.

Hasd Cafe is a wonderful little experience. Upstairs is a cosy space for you to work, study, or relax in. Do try the flat white. Hot coffee and a chocolate fudge brownie are the perfect coffee shop combination you never knew you needed.
