Thursday, December 22
Finish off the workweek at Brew 92
Brew 92 has quickly become the go-to hip coffee shop amongst young people in Jeddah (with branches also in Riyadh and Mecca), but despite its popularity, it is a great place to get long hours of work done. They have two branches in Jeddah and both are spacious with a welcoming staff. Brew 92 is also easily the best roastery in Jeddah and the place to be for unbeatable coffee.
