Homegrown UAE brand Saddle Café is coming to Riyadh

From a food truck to international branches – check out the concept this November.

The UAE is home to exciting places to dine, from celebrity chefs to MICHELIN-starred restaurants. Now, a homegrown spot is making its way to Saudi Arabia, and it has got us buzzing with excitement. Saddle Café brings a touch of Emirati culture to the Kingdom, and is scheduled to open in November.  

Founded in 2017 in the UAE, Saddle Café is a foodie success story. The concept started as a single food truck serving speciality brews. Now, it has lots of loyal fans and can be found across 14 locations in the country. The brand expanded with international outposts in Cannes, France and London, United Kingdom. The London spot opened in October, and is located near the iconic department store, Harrods.

Saddle Café was created by the Emirati entrepreneur Mohamed Al Falasi, and he is committed to sharing Arabic coffee with the world. The concept draws its inspiration from Arabian equestrian heritage, local artists – Emirati artwork has appeared on the walls – and a love of good coffee. The team pride themselves on sourcing the finest beans from across the globe.

If the UAE menu is anything to go by, Riyadh is in for a treat. Saddle Café’s drinks menu includes speciality coffees available in hot and cold brews, and signature serves range from Saddle La Brioche to Saddle Acai Smoothie. The food dishes include crepes and breakfast items such as acai as well as granola bowls. The croissants include a Cheese Croissant, Omelette Croissant, and Zaatar with Halloumi Croissant. The brioches range from a Classic La Brioche to Truffle La Brioche.
