Al Samadi Café
Time Out Says
You’ll find a few Bahrainis watching Al-Jazeera on the large TV at the back while their wives shop, as well as the odd family ploughing their way through generous fattoush salads and mezze dips. These are appetising, and the flat handkerchief bread is as fresh as the day it was packaged. The mint tea, nicely served in an ornate pot, is devoid of any fresh mint, while the hazelnut coffee is slightly sickly, but suitably strong.
The strawberry cheesecake is a hunk of pastel yellow topped with crimson red, with a wheaty digestive biscuit base. It’s tasty, but its fluffy texture means it’s more mousse than cake. This is not a standout destination, but a reliable one if you are in the mall and footsore from shopping.
