True Cafe Najran

It's been a while since I made a blog, and of course, it will be another cafe review here in Najran KSA because I just love eating and trying out different places wherever I may be. Although there are just a few food spots here as of the moment, I am very happy that Najran is one of the fastest-growing cities in the kingdom with a lot of establishments opening every now and then. So if you are here, you might want to read on as I share our gastronomic experience at True Cafe.

Just a month ago, me and my friend decided to try a cafe I've been passing by for a few times but never tried before since it was a bit far from my home. True Cafe is along King Abdullah Road just beside Donut Land. It is very plain outside but once we entered, the cafe had a very beautiful ambiance or maybe because they designed it for their National Day last September. But nevertheless, I loved how it looked inside.

Once you go to the second floor, you will find an alfresco dining area. Actually, I learned about this cafe from a colleague and I wanted to try this place to experience this setup. To be under the night sky, with good music and great food with the company of good friends, just like in the Philippines. 

There are only a few places here in Najran where you can hang out freely like this, because it is still a bit conservative in this part of the Kingdom. Usually, ladies occupy rooms in the family area with closed doors but here in True Cafe, only a small partition is used to separate you from other guests. But take note that only men with family members are allowed to come in this area.

When it comes to food, they serve the usual choices that you can find in any other cafes here in Najran. They have appetizers such as fries, chicken fingers and dynamite shrimps and they also offer salads, sandwiches, pastas, pastries and desserts. For drinks, you can choose from hot and cold coffees, tea, soft drinks, juices and milkshakes. When it comes to pricing, it is on the average side and the servings are quite generous. 

Quesadilla - 22sar

The tortilla became soggy so it was very hard to eat, as the contents would fall every time you try to bite on it. Each piece of quesadilla was also very big so I suggest that they cut it into smaller pieces to be able to consume easily. But flavor wise, it was very good. This is good for 2 pax.

Pasta Alfredo - 25sar

I love pasta so and I always order this in every restaurant I try. Their pasta was very creamy and tasty. Although there was nothing special about it. One serving is good for two people.

True Crepe (Nutella + Kinder) - 26sar

Favorite part of any meal, dessert. Nothing will ever go wrong with a combination of nutella and kinder on my crepe. Love this pair. Serving size: 2 pax. Or if you are a sweet tooth like me, I can finish this all by myself. Haha

Strawberry Milkshake - 16sar

There was a hint of sourness, but all in all I liked my strawberry milkshake. But my problem with drinks here in Najran are always very small and the price, if compared to the Philippines, is already for a big sized drink. 

Spanish Latte with Saffron - 17sar

This is what I usually order, Spanish Latte, my favorite ever since I tried it for the first time last year. But this time, my friend is the one who ordered this drink. I haven't tried Spanish Latte with Saffron before but according to my friend, it was a great coffee, not too sweet and not too bitter. I will definitely try this next time.

When it comes to service, the servers were very accommodating and friendly, although they had a problem using my card. When they were able to make it work after maybe 4-5 times of trying, they entered the wrong amount, which was supposed to be for another customer, but they apologized and returned the money. Two thumbs up 👍👍

Definitely a very nice experience for us here in True Cafe and we will definitely come back again soon. Hopefully we get to come back during nights where there is a pianist performing. My colleague told me that there was a pianist there the last time they went. I am looking forward to witness that as well. I recommend you try this place too, and if you've been here before, comment down below what's your favorite food to order here and how was your experience. I would love to hear from you. 😊
