I can't rave enough about this place! It is hands down my favourite place in Male'. When you're here, you don't even feel like you are in Male' - it's a great escape from the hustle and bustle of this tiny, congested city!
The founder, Mabrouq, has thought through all of the small details - the decor, music, ambiance, coffee and accompaniments. He even tested multiple types of milk before finalising which one to use to ensure it produced the best flavour and consistency. The accompaniments, which are croissants and cookies, are also well thought through to ensure that they compliment and mix well with the coffee.
The team is really friendly and pleasant and always greets you with a smile. We come quite often, so they know my husband and I, and most of the staff even remember our usual order by now.
The ambiance is on point! The place is well decorated, with exposed brick walls, wooden seating, Edison lightbulbs, a chalkboard with some artwork on it and a Marshall's speaker blaring out some soothing jazz music.
Now, down to what really matters...the coffee! The coffee is always very flavourful and our favourite is the Brazilian beans that they have quite often. They usually use fresh milk for their lattes, which is rare, if not impossible, to find in Male' (I avoid drinking UHT milk, which is what most places in the city use, so this is a big plus for me). They present the coffee on this platter sort of thing along with a shot of sparkling water so that you may cleanse your palate before enjoying your drink - a nice touch! Their chocolate chip cookie is amazing...it's so chocolatey, with a gooey centre (and they heat it up before serving it to you). Their chocolate and almond croissant is also really tasty. If you're not a coffee person, they also have some teas, a matcha latte and mocktails.
When I leave Male', this is a place I will definitely miss. I recommend visiting this coffee shop if you live in Male' or are passing through the city - you won't be disappointed!
