Time Out Says

The Living Room Café is a charming, laid-back, family-owned spot nestled in Khalidiya Village. The restaurant is intimate and its seating is a comfortable mix of sofas and tables and chairs. They’ve even managed to squeeze in a kids’ play area in one corner.

Serving an assortment of dishes and cuisines, there’s a healthy mix of breakfast options, salads, pastas, burgers and much more.

The “get well soon” chicken soup with vegetables and pasta – that are thankfully not cooked down to a mush – is comfort in a bowl. It’s fragrant, nourishing and tastes like something your mother would make when you’re feeling under the weather.

Meanwhile, the coconut milk in the aromatic Thai chicken curry lends it a subtle sweetness. The added veggies are generous and make it a filling main.

The desserts, though, are where this little café shines brightest, with its drool-worthy selection – it’s all home-made and generously sized. Try the lamingtons (Australian sponge cakes). They’re light, chocolatey and with the right hit of sweetness. This place is as homely as you’ll find.

The bottom line
A friendly café with great service, good food and delicious lamingtons.
