“illy coffee & free wifi”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 1, 2014

The cafe is at the entrance of the Nizwa fort. Go in for a shot of illy espresso or special omani coffee with dates or just some cold coffee. they have free wifi so that you can upload your favourite snaps or plan you tour ahead. Good retreat before you head towards your trip to souq.

“A little gem”

Charming coffee house and internet café. Good for a snack of a light lunch. I had a tasty omelette and some dates.

“Real coffee at last”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 15, 2014

Downtown Nizwa has coffee shops in abundance but just about all of them offer only instant Nescafé. Omani coffee flavoured with cardamom is seldom available so it was great to chance upon this modern coffee house just outside the main entrance to the Fort.
Their Omani coffee comes in a large pot serving 2 generously with excellent dates for 2 Rials or 3 if you add halva. Illy coffee and a good range of teas are also available as are some simple meals which we didn't try. Lots of locals clearly appreciate it as there was a steady stream calling in for take aways.

This is a little air conditioned oasis with free wifi just around the corner from the souk.
