15 new cafés in Jeddah that are causing a stir



From hipster hotspots to Insta-worthy décor, here’s where to fuel your day.

There are so many cafés and so little time, so we’re here to help. Jeddah has a buzzing coffee culture, which is brimming with exciting new openings. Whether you want to catch up with friends, work remotely or grab a drink to go, there’s a café to suit your needs. Here are the best new cafés in Jeddah. 

Beauti Artisanal Café

With a name like Beauti Artisanal Café, we’re expecting a beauty – and this definitely delivers. Located in the Red Sea Mall, the new restaurant in Jeddah is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The breakfast dishes include Avocado Toasted with Roasted Veggies, Classic French Toast and Shakshuka Skillet, plus a range of acai bowls and egg dishes. The menu also covers sandwiches, salads and sliders, and desserts ranging from a Lemon Blast to Lotus Madness. The interiors are jungle chic with hanging plants, potted plants and even leaf-patterned wallpaper, which is offset by the mustard colour sofas. Beautiful.


Bocu gives sweet treats an upgrade, as everything from cakes to cookies have been turned up a notch. The counter is filled with decadent desserts: Raspberry Tarts with Mascarpone Cream, Vanilla and Caramel Cakes, and Milk Jivara Chocolate Mendiant. The minimalist monochrome design, with black and white tiles, let’s the desserts do the talking. The place clearly understands the splendour of a well-crafted cake, as we even spotted cakes on plinths, standing like works of art. So, pull up a mustard chair at one of the round tables or countertops, and leave room for dessert.

Chant Bistro 

If you think breakfast is the most important meal of the day, then you’ll want to put Chant Bistro on your restaurant radar. The breakfast menu includes Shakshuka, Truffle Scrambled Eggs, and Turkish Eggs with Labneh. Late risers, don’t worry – there is also a brunch menu with Avocado Ricotta Toast, Eggs Benedict and Fried Burrata Cheese. There are also salads, pastries and desserts, ranging from a Pistachio Raspberry Mousse Cake to Passion Fruit Pavlova. We’d recommend making a morning (and afternoon out of it), as the interiors are pretty, plush and pastel coloured.

Communal Café

As the name suggests, Communal Café in Jeddah is all about socialising. The motto is sip, nip and socialise. The menu covers sandwiches, desserts and speciality coffee. The sandwiches include Egg Salad, Miso Chicken and Smoked Turkey. The desserts feature French Toast coated in caramel sauce and Pancakes with three layers. Plus, there are cold drinks that range from Lychee Rose to Matcha and hot drinks that range from a Double Espresso to the coffee of the day.

Di Lava Café

While Di Lava Café has café in its title, you’d be mistaken for thinking that this was a high-end restaurant. Located in Al Andalus district, the venue oozes a fashionable aesthetic, which wouldn’t look out of place in Breakfast at Tiffany’s. The interiors boast the brand’s gold logo, pretty plants, and emerald green walls and counters. The breakfast menu includes Avocado Tomato Benedict, Eggs Benedict and Omelette Steak. The all-day menu ranges from Bruschetta Funghi to Fish and Chips. The dessert menu ranges from Chocolate Brownies to Crunchy Praline. Plus, the drinks include coffees, teas and mocktail mojitos.
