Khobar-born speciality coffee shop ARCHI landed in Riyadh late last year and has since become a local hotspot. The matcha is well-balanced when it comes to sweetness and bitterness, making for a top experience.

Jeddah’s homegrown cafe Brew 92 has been making a splash lately, winning awards, and expanding to a couple of cities in the Kingdom, and more. Serving matcha frappes and matcha lattes, iced or hot depending on what mood you’re in, Brew 92 is one of the coolest matcha spots in Riyadh now.

Undoubtedly, Sadelle’s is a lot of people’s favourite spot in Riyadh for a number of reasons, it’s gorgeous, the food is always amazing, and the vibes are kind of unmatched. The restaurant’s decor blends modern and vintage elements to create an elegant but relaxed atmosphere. Salmon pink, soothing pastel blue and Kelly green shades, pillars and flooring inlaid with marble, and brass detailing offer a glamorous old-world European vibe. And if you’re already not sold, the matcha here is incredible too.

Sociale Cafe

We have to admit, this one might just be our favourite on the list. The spot is super cosy and rustic and feels a little like a home away from home, you can pick the regular matcha latte, hot or cold, or instead go for the Spanish matcha latte for a sweeter drink.
