Up North: Gloria Jean’s in Riyadh

Hubby and I love driving around and trying out new restaurants in our area, North of Riyadh. Right now, one of our favorite hangout spots is Gloria Jean’s Coffees, the popular Australian cafe. Yep, not everyone knows that there’s a Gloria Jean’s branch in Riyadh. It’s along King Abdulaziz Road on Exit 5.


It’s our favorite because of its proximity to our house and its cozy and comfy seating areas. We hangout here for hours and its a great place to meet friends and talk over coffee. It’s not too dark and the seating areas are spacious. The staff are very courteous and helpful.



My favorite combo will always be their Hot Choco paired with Cheese croissants but their White Macadamia Frappe is also nice.


On our most recent visit, I tried their Irish Nut Creme and Chocolate Souffle, which was soft, warm and creamy.



I also ordered their Smoked Turkey Sandwich. It’s a layer of smoked turkey with melting cheese and tomatoes and lettuce, sandwiched by grilled bagel buns. I loved that when it was served, it was still steaming with the cheese melting on top of the turkey.


They also have other yummy desserts to go with their coffee selection. They have the usual croissants, cheesecakes, souffles and chocolate mousse.


Overall, I’m very happy with Gloria Jean’s here in Riyadh and I hope they’ll open more branches soon. I wish they’d update their page though, to reflect local store times.
