I have to admit, I didn’t find this place by myself. I was invited by one of my gal pals for afternoon tea. Very easy to get to and parking right out front. We were greeted by a gentlemen who opened up the door for us (nice touch) and we made our way upstairs where the seating is. If you have bad knees don’t even try the tiny, steep & winding steps. At least they have a handrail that you desperately hold on to on your way up. Once you have reached the peak, you come to an open seating area with lots of puffy fluffy pillows and a tv against the wall. The menu had many different types of tea (some that I have never heard of) but we ended up getting 1 pot to share (1 pot is 16 SR) and then we ordered a slice of carrot cake (25SR a slice). Yes, it is pricey!! I asked which bakery supplied their cakes and the waiter said that they had a lady who prepares them from her home. I must admit this was one of the best carrot cakes I have ever had. So, we drank our tea and chatted. The next evening I brought my daughters to have the yummy carrot cake and the place was filled with customers. When I was there with my gal pal, it was fine because we were alone in the place, but when there are other customers, the type of seating makes it a bit uncomfortable being so face-to-face with strangers. We inhaled our carrot cake and left. If you are planning to go there, try to get there before the Magrib prayer so that you may sit comfortably.Chai & Ba,
