“Cafe with a view”
Review of The Cafe

If you want coffee with a seaview then go. I find the layout very confusing and never know whether to sit and have waiter service, order at the counters and then sit and waiter brings for you. At least now there is a coffee shop which is better than previous visits.

You can have nice food and drink at this cafe but the real attraction is the wonderful views across the bay and the ambience in the spectacular Museum of Islamic Art building. Like a lot of places in Doha, this cafe isn't cheap but entry to the MIA is free so paying a little extra for your coffee isn't a big deal. This cafe also has a nice atmosphere - it feels like people can drop by and hang out for a little while. The MIA is on it's own 'island' so it's worth combining a visit to the cafe with a walk round the outstanding exhibitions or the MIA park.

I live nearby and often walk to MIA Café for lunch or coffee. The seating is very comfortable and you get a view of either the West Bay skyline or the magnificent main foyer. The food is now reasonable (it was a bit over priced at first) and is fresh, imaginative and well prepared. Try the salads or the Monte Cristo sandwich. Coffee is good and it is nice to relax there after a tour of the Museum. The manager (Oxana) and staff (Luis) are very nice.

It is worth the small cost of the food here to sit and view the skyline of Doha as though through a veil in the floor to ceiling (4 floors up) window. The "veil" allows light but not the hot rays of the sun and creates the illusion of a veil. The food is exquisite and the fountain water feature soothing.

Nice place with good classy service for a coffee or quick bite. Located in the Museum of Islamic Art it has a beautiful view of West Bay area and Doha Corniche.
