Fashion meets gourmet at this exclusive café located in Riyadh Park. Designed with an Italian garden theme, the café’s luxe aesthetic is brought to life by the bespoke birdcage booth seating area and gold and black tones throughout. We suggest sitting outdoors if the weather is not too hot – the cobblestones and arches are reminiscent of the backstreets of Rome.

Cavalli Caffé, second floor, Riyadh Park, Gate 4, Northern Ring Branch Road, Al Aqiq, Riyadh 11564, daily noon to midnight. Tel: 054 591 8180 / 058 354 7378. @cavallicaffesa

If you’re in the Qurtubah area, do check out Cacti’s newest outlet. The shop’s clean and minimal design is accentuated by a well-positioned skylight, and it’s hard not to love. Plus, a spiral staircase anchors the two-storey café, which has become the signature image of Cacti.

Cacti Café, Ath Thumamah Road, Qurtubah, Riyadh 11564, daily 7am to 3am. Tel: 050 999 9866. @cacti_sa
