Al-Jalsa Coffe Shop and Lounge, located at Al-Sharq Village, is one of the most elegant and beautiful cafes in Doha. The place is tastefully decorated in an Ottoman empire-meets-French boudoir fashion, with silk cushions, low and high seating arrangements, and a vast collection of brews fit for royalty. The afternoon tea, which is usually accompanied by freshly made signature Ritz Carlton scones, makes the simple act of drinking coffee an unforgettable Doha experience. Iced tea is served in elegant tall glasses, hot tea and coffee come in exquisitely decorated crockery, the waiters treat the patrons like rock stars and the snacks (macarons, sandwiches, canapés, quails eggs, etc.) are divine. Al-Jalsa makes a perfect spot on your way to the airport; it will sure send you off with a taste of true Arabesque extravaganza.
