This import from Kuwait serves up breakfast sandwiches made in their signature brioche toast bread. The turkey and egg sandwich comes highly recommended, but you can make the meal heartier by adding sides like bacon, French fries or hash brown. Plus, the bright and cheerful interior makes it a lovely place to hang out.

Five Guys

A popular fast-casual restaurant chain, Five Guys’ simple, yet effective menu features classic burgers with your choice of select toppings and sizes. Or, you can mix things up by ordering yourself a hotdog. Whatever meal you choose, be sure to get your hands on some of their famous fries. For a sweet finish, opt for your choice of ten different milkshake flavours, including cherry, malted milk, or peanut butter.

Starbucks Reserve Boulevard

Starbucks coffeehouses have become a beacon for coffee lovers everywhere. So, it’s no surprise that the Reserve coffee bar at The Boulevard was opened with great fanfare in 2020. The store’s design takes its inspiration from the architectural World Heritage Site at Ad Diriyah. The store also champions Starbucks coffee craft culture and includes a Reserve bar where customers can experience the Black Eagle coffee machine.
