This was a great place for lunch or dinner! Lots of delicious traditional food, great photos on the walls and they often have live music! A great place to spend an evening downtown!

We had a lovely time sitting on the terrace and listening to some classical oud. Hookah was great, and tea was hot.

It’s in downtown Amman an old build that was renovated and converted into a coffee shop. Beautiful atmosphere, delicious food and awesome service specially Yasser and his crew. Made sure to go in the evening and yes it’s moderately priced !!

Took a couple of meals and coffees here and service and quality never failed. A bit more expensive than streetfood, but with a fine atmosphere.
