Café Hamra is an exciting fusion of American ‘50s diner and Lebanese hookah lounge, where you can enjoy snacking on humus or puffing argileh in between games of pinball. It offers a delightful terrace and diverse options at the salad bar. Café Hamra is one of the most popular hangouts in the area and does its best to hark back to Hamra’s heyday when it was home to the best bustling cafes in the city. Although Lebanese culture is at the heart of Café Hamra, it has welcomed in more international tastes and accordingly the menu is adorned with the likes of pizza, pasta and burgers. In the summer months Café Hamra has a heaving outdoor space, which is the largest in the area. Try the affogato on a hot afternoon — a shot of espresso with a scoop of vanilla ice-cream – to get the best from this venue.
