The cafe on everyone’s lips naturally has a beautiful interior around. Marble effect tables? Check. Neon slogans on the walls? Check. Flowers and plants draped around the place? Check. Plus, a huge dose of pink in the shape of a faux flowering tree and velvet chairs. Secret Garden ticks just about every Instagram box going while serving up breakfast and lunch options, pastries, and drinks.

Secret Garden, various locations including Riyadh Park, 1st floor, Al Aqiq, Riyadh 13511, Sat to Thurs 9.30am to 11pm & Fri 1pm to 11pm. @lovesecretgarden.ksa

This eclectic café is peppered with potted plants and beautiful blooms hanging from the ceiling and brimming with cool vibes. Perfect for a relaxing afternoon, especially when you pair it with a cuppa and its pistachio souffle. But, of course, weekend brunches here are even better.

You’ve probably heard of EL&N – it’s that fancy floral café from London that regularly tops the world’s most Instagrammable cafe list. For those not familiar with EL&N, it is known for being a pink haven, and you’ll soon have ample opportunity to soak in some of these vibes when it opens in Riyadh later this year. Expect flower walls, pink interiors and latte art that’s next level.

Coming soon at Riyadh Park. @elan_cafe
