Woke up to a rumbling stomach? Check out these places to satiate your breakfast needs.
Madeleine took the city by storm with its decadent dessert selection and wide range of entrées. But nothing compares to its breakfast options. From the eggs benedict to the Nutella-stuffed French toast, everything is absolutely scrumptious.

Tower Kitchen by Pattis France
Pattis France is probably the oldest and most well-known breakfast name in the area. It currently exists as Tower Kitchen while their Corniche branch is being renovated, but that hasn’t stopped its faithful regulars who keep coming back every time, regardless of the other spots popping up, and we don’t blame them.
Location: Alturki Business Park, Prince Faisal bin Fahd Rd., Dhahran
The breakfast selection isn’t extensive, but what they lack in options, they make up for in quality. Make the best of the winter weather and order their blueberry waffles while enjoying the view on their terrace.

New kid on the block Vicoli just rolled out their breakfast menu and boy were we impressed! The menu is full of items that are as amazing as the ornaments and chinoiserie vases decorating the restaurant. Vicoli also has a small terrace area which is great for enjoying that morning coffee.

Acoustic Tea Lounge and Gallery
Both a cafe and gallery, Acoustic is a wonderful choice for that morning where you’d like to treat your taste buds while enjoying a little art.
Location: Near Al Rajhi Bank, Prince Faisal bin Fahd Rd., Khobar
Located in the basement level of Rashid Mall’s extension (Al Qaysaria), the cafe and surrounding stores are all designed traditionally, embodying the culture of the region. The breakfast choices are limited but hit the spot all the same. Make sure you order their karak.
