Just 100 metres away from Rainbow Street, Caffè Strada is a professional, thoughtfully run establishment, and is understandably popular with young Jordanians and tourists. According to its website, the café is smoke-free (not a given in Jordan), and labels itself as a “paninoteca and dessert parlour of Italian and European traditions”. A fantastic place to work and sample a wide variety of teas and coffees, Strada is comfortable, welcoming, and has a strong Wi-Fi connection.

It’s hard to resist being charmed by the rustic simplicity of the Jadal Café. The café is situated in a small, private courtyard in downtown Amman, and attracts a varied demographic of clientele. They serve a decent cup of tea (among other things), but the main draw is its serene ambiance and the cultural events that occur regularly. The courtyard takes on a different, livelier vibe at night, when live music is often played.
