Ideal for… a modern Lebanese lunch. (a twist to your regular Lebanese meal!)

What they say: Café Blanc introduces a new trend in Lebanese restoration. The oriental atmosphere is charming, relaxing and presented with a twist. It is a Lebanese café which is modern in image, yet traditional in essence. The menu is creative in terms of mezze, desserts, traditional juices and hot drinks. Café Blanc is a casual place where you can come at any time of the day whether to eat or simply enjoy a cup of coffee, a nice dessert or narguile while, playing tawleh with friends.
