Wallflower by Le Cafe, located in Villaggio Restaurant Village in Alkhobar, is a great place to have hearty brunch on a Friday.
It is one of the few eateries in the area open from 8:00 a.m. until half past midnight on that day.
On our recent visit, we tried their Santa Fe chicken salad, which was layered with plenty of fresh, crunchy ingredients. It was so filling, we had to take the rest of it home to enjoy later. It cost SR67 ($17).
We washed it down with a tangy and sweet passion fruit mojito for SR29.
To end, we tried their carrot cake, which the waiter assured us was their best seller, and indeed, there was only one slice left in the cake display area.
For SR37, we had a fluffy yet decadent slice that satisfied our craving for a dessert that wasn’t too sweet.
The location can’t be beat, with outdoor seating overlooking the dancing fountain from the ground floor. On the top floor, you can enjoy the breeze and view along with your meal. They also have plenty of indoor seating that is ideal for solo diners or groups.
They offer a wide variety of menu items, from breakfast foods and lunch options to specialty drinks and a whole array of cakes and desserts.
They open from 8 a.m. until 11:30 p.m. on Saturdays. On weekdays, they are open from 8 a.m. until noon and, after a siesta, from 4 p.m. until 11:30 p.m.
