Today, I went with my lovely cousins to discover a new cafe in Khobar; Madeleine. It's been open for a while, but I have been away for most of last year, so I just got a chance to try it tonight.
Initially, we went to only have desert, but after smelling the food and reading the menu we got tempted to eat as well! My favourite thing about the whole shop is their graphics and branding. I just love the quirky black and white sketches used behind the deserts counter, on the door, on their boxes and menus.
They have two sitting areas. The downstairs one, which was really noisy and the upstairs one. It was quiet and relaxing. Everyone was raving about their deserts. We started with them. They were very sweet and nice a mix of French, American, Italian and Middle Eastern. They have few innovative macaroons. They were nice, but not out of this world. The food was lovely and oddly Italian. Typical Saudi cafes where you get international food. It was a little pricey for what we got. The price of main dishes was almost the same as one desert.
Their decor is between classic and quirky with a mix of wooden touches. Their chairs were really comfortable and the light pistachio green paint is soothing. It's a great place to chill with friends and family.
