Ahmad Humeid wrote about coffee wars in Amman. Now coming to Riyadh, I think the war is mainly between Starbucks and the local Dr. Cafe. The city is filled with coffee houses, international and local, and most of them are doing fine and still in the business basically because young men do not really have much places to go. However, I think the war is only between the previously mentioned two, as they have the strongest brands in the market, and branches spread all over Riyadh. My favorites: strawberry cocktail from Dr. Cafe, and the raspberry frappuccino from Starbucks. (P.S. I don’t drink coffee.)

do you have barnies like we do in jeddah…they are so popular and their coffee isnt bad either. starbucks is soooo over rated. since i’ve come to dubai, i love second cup…they have the best hot chocolate…
I think Dr.Cafe is much better. Plus it has seniority. I can remember the hype over the first starbucks opening only a couple of years ago.
No coffee???? How comes???????
What do you mean?
