Coffee is a significant part of Arab culture. It is a symbol of generosity and hospitality. The host would roast, grind and brew the coffee in front of guests, and the entire act of preparing and serving coffee was a ceremony in itself, with customs and protocols that must be carried out and followed.

The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is no exception, and beyond the home and Bedouin tents, the love and appreciation for coffee permeate Saudi Arabian society. This is evident in the number of cafes in Riyadh.

Riyadh, the cultural capital of Saudi Arabia, is where you will find the country’s top cultural destinations, like the National Museum at the King Abdulaziz Historical Center and the Diriyah Museum at the UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization) world heritage site, At Turaif historical district. It also clearly loves coffee, as there are more than 80 cafes and cafe restaurants in Riyadh.

One of the top cafes in Riyadh is Malath Coffee on Prince Majed Bin Abdulaziz Rd in Ar Rayyan, with modern interiors that are a tasteful marriage of white, beige, and wood, with touches of reds and browns in colourful rugs, prints, and throw pillows. This Riyadh cafe serves espresso-based drinks, mouth-watering pastries, and specialty coffees, including V60 hand-poured.

Piani Speciality Coffee in Al Kamthari, Al Mansourah, is another top-rated cafe in Riyadh. It serves not only delicious coffee but also delectable saffron, cinnamon, and chocolate cakes. 

Chef Ahmed on Uthman Ibn Affan Road is a must-try for coffee and bread lovers. This coffee shop in Riyadh serves Italian focaccia, baguettes, croissants, and Danish pastries, and it offers a selection of fine chocolates for special occasions.
