Today’s Destination: Plant Cafe in Abu Arish, Saudi Arabia

The quiet city of Abu Arish in the southwestern province of Jazan is known for its salt production and export. These days, it’s also known for its cafés that have the perfect balance of salty and sweet.

Seven months ago, Plant Cafe opened its doors to residents of the area. Jizan City should pay attention.

One recent evening, Plant Cafe was packed with coffee lovers, sipping cold drinks on velvety green chairs and scrolling through their phones on terrazzo-patterned tables.

A photogenic cafe with full-length mirrors in the aisles leading to the seats.

The back wall is decorated with colorful portraits of celebrities. A wooden spiral staircase draped with green plants leads to the seating area on the second floor.

Limited seating is also available outdoors for those who dare to sit and drink in the scorching heat.

Cute coffee cups with illustrations of farmers collecting flowers and plants are always full in a space where the espresso machine steams and soothing music plays.

A must try is the bottled cold lemon strawberry trifle. Layered decadence served with rich cheesecake, tart strawberry sauce, smooth cream and fresh lemon to enjoy with a spoon. -A nighttime sweet craving or an afternoon pick-me-up.

The cafe is bright and open early until midnight. Open 6 days a week from 6:00 am to 2:00 am Fridays from 4:30 pm to 2:00 am.
