Speaking about the launch, EL&N London founder Alexandra Miller said: “We are so thrilled to be opening our first standalone café in Riyadh. We’ve already been fortunate enough to receive such a fantastic response from our coffee and cake units in The Alley and Riyadh Park Mall, so I have absolutely no doubt that this site is going to be a huge hit with our guests who are wanting to immerse themselves in the full EL&N experience.

“Riyadh was always the first place we wanted to launch in Saudi Arabia as we already have such a loyal Saudi fanbase built back in the UK. I look forward to watching our expansion throughout KSA unfold with many more beautiful, unique cafés opening across the kingdom.”
