From Home to Dar, where can you Sip your “Beloved”(Kalei) drink this winter as one of Four seasons while Gordon and Angelina are tagging along! Oh and a surprise addition to the gang too🤗
Wow, that was pretty much of a long introduction, but you get my point, I tried to summarize for you what will I talk about!
A cottage nestled in Mar Mkahyel, their walls painted outside are so inviting to check the interior which reflects cozier feeling. Pick your spot and savor their breakfast menu, Lunch cooked by Mama, or dinner. Obviously their coffee selection is as good. I personally enjoyed their cinnamon cappuccino, latte and yogi tea.! They are also serving healthy treats and scrumptious dessert.
Alexander Fleming Street, Mar Mikhael, Beirut / Mon-Sun from 9 AM to 12 Midnight
Another home away from home, no worries if you forgot to bring your book, as they have a book store with a wide range and they are ready to take your orders. Not only you can have your coffee fix, but they have an exquisite menu from salads to main dishes and unmissable desserts.
Wardieh Street, Hamra, Beirut / Mon-Sun from 8 AM to 12 Midnight
A small shop towards the end of Gemmayze, sunshiny energy blooming from inside, with ultimate care and hospitality. Prepare yourself to be amazed! An old shop turned into a warm cafe, rough interiors, smoothed by hues of different shades of blue and a velvet touch. The open bar is where you can watch all preparations done, an outside terrace and adjacent tables. Maya and Omar passing around with warm smiles to ensure that everyone is satisfied. A must try their Chai and Matcha lattes sweetened by luscious dessert from @dbbakescakes. You can also enjoy a small selection of bagels and salads with fresh produce.
Gouraud Street, Gemmayze, Beirut / Mon-Sun from 7:30 AM to 12 Midnight
The coffee shop that went Viral if I may say. What first was meant to be as a coffee brand, turned into one of the coziest places. Not easily found, but worth the effort of search. You can opt to sit outside, inside or on the roof, grab one of their specialty coffee or their food menu that was recently changed. What is not to be missed is the interaction with the staff who are so kind.
Mar Mikhael, facing the old Laziza Factory, Beirut / Mon-Sun from 9 AM to 11PM
As expected from Four season, their Lobby is one of the best options when you want to spend serene time with live piano playing, and Chef Mohamad Abbas delicate chocolate creations to savor with your coffee. A must try.
Four seasons, Wafic Sinno street, Minet El Hosn, Beirut / Mon-Sun from 8 AM to 12 Midnight
Another experience in a not so usual Five stars hotel. A unique café trottoir experience in the heart of Down town, a selection of freshly baked cakes with plenty of tasty drinks, of which I love the Verveine and Cappuccino. Sweetened by an exquisite service, grab your seat and enjoy catching up with a friend.
Le Gray Hotel, Martyr’s square, Down town, Beirut / Mon-Thu and Sun from 8 AM to 11PM and & Fri -Sat 8 AM to 12 Midnight
In the heart of the souks area, a Parisian addition with their famous Mont Blanc, that is totally up to its reputation, that comes in different versions, as per seasonal flavors. The deluxe interior with marbles and Parisian palace touch is so inviting. Try their hot chocolate, verveine or any of their coffee selection.
Quartier Foch, Saad Zaghloul Street, Down town, Beirut / Mon-Sun from 9AM to 10PM
That is the good news that I kept till the end! You can now enjoy an afternoon coffee at the sixth most beautiful restaurant as selected in Appetizer magazine. A well-earned rank.
