Yes, we know it’s a chain, and for the most part we’re not ones to champion the chain gang, but this Country Mall outlet of Costa is worth knowing about. For one thing, it’s open 24/7, and secondly, it’s one of the few cafés in Bahrain that has Wi-Fi. More than just a meeting place, the joint has a homely atmosphere and is a pleasant place in which to rest up for a while.
Mochas and macchiatos, caffe lattes and cappuccinos are all served up by baristas with a flair for flavour. Alternatively, cool down with a frappe – a blended drink with chocolate, coffee or caramel. There are also plenty of quick bites (we can vouch for the grilled halloumi panini) and indulgent treats (try the mango cheesecake) to accompany your cup of choice, making this branch of Costa a welcome respite from the mania of the new mall.
