Where We Are Going Today: Haif and Kaif Cafe, for an original Saudi taste

  • This is a great place to have breakfast with your family
  • A slice of Haif and Kaif’s date cake along with some Arabic coffee is also a great treat

This is as Saudi as it gets. The smell of Arabic coffee sparks your senses as soon as you walk into the all-Arabian-style restaurant, which is filled with colorful Bedouin decorations and artwork.

Haif and Kaif’s menu features many popular Saudi breakfast options and desserts, some of which add a little Western twist, such as the date cheesecake and maraseea (mini pancakes) with pistachio sauce.

This is a great place to have breakfast with your family, as aside from all the delicious food and drink options it offers a homey atmosphere with attentive staff and Bedouin aesthetics that are visually very pleasing.

A personal favorite breakfast dish is the cafe’s shakshouka, a local version of the popular dish that combines scrambled eggs with tomato sauce and vegetables. A slice of Haif and Kaif’s date cake along with some Arabic coffee is also a great treat.

The cafe has two branches in Jeddah, which can be found on Corniche Road in Al-Shatea district and at gate 8 in Red Sea Mall.

Trump: Saudi arrests in Khashoggi death ‘a good first step’

  • Trump said that Saudi Arabia has been a great ally
  • The president said he wanted to talk to Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman on what to do next

LUKE AIR FORCE BASE, Arizona: US President Donald Trump on Friday called Saudi Arabia's announcement that suspects are in custody in the death of journalist Jamal Khashoggi a "good first step" and said he would work with Congress on a US response.

The president spoke to the media at a defense roundtable in Arizona hours after Saudi Arabia claimed that Khashoggi, a Washington Post contributor last seen on Oct. 2, was killed in a "fistfight" at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul. The kingdom also said that 18 suspects were in custody and that intelligence officials had been fired.

Asked by a reporter whether he thought Saudi Arabia's explanation for Khashoggi's death was credible, Trump said, "I do. I do." But he said before he decided what to do next, he wanted to talk to Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.

"Saudi Arabia has been a great ally, but what happened is unacceptable," Trump said. Regarding the Saudi arrests, he said, "It's a big first step. It's only a first step, but it's a big first step."
