I have visited this lovely resturant many times for an early morning breakfast. They serve very delicious Saudi breakfast. I like so much the Fool with olive oil in companion with the freshly baked special bread "Tameez". Your breakfast should finish by trying the delicious sweet " Masoob" with different taste of your choice. A wonderful traditional breakfast in Jeddah.

Great place for a Saudi breakfast, take-away or eat in. Often the only place to grab an early bite on a Saturday morning.
