Without further ado I introduce you all to Circles & Circles the project my husband and I have been working on for over two years now. We found the perfect spot two years ago where we would put our shop, but it was an absolute mess. We had to rebuild the entire store which took time, but not two years. All the waiting was due to the never ending papers we had to wait for and also our baker to come from his country. And, then finally Saturday night we did something that we had been wanting to do forever and that was open the doors.
We are the only place you will find REAL NYC style bagels in Riyadh. A few places have tried to offer them over the past few months, but it was just round bread nothing like a bagel whatsoever. As of now we are offering everything (amazing), raisin, plain and sesame seed. We have every meat and vegetable you can imagine to fill with like salmon and we use only Philadelphia cream cheese and make our own blends in house such as blueberry, strawberry and many more.
Just wait it gets better! We also offer all of those favorite American coffee drinks we love back home such as Pumpkin and Gingerbread Lattes. I have the baker bake something new every day from my family recipes. So far, we have had Pumpkin Scones and nutella and Peanut butter brownies. For all of you westerners out there this is the real deal (I made sure of it) and you can have a little piece of home for a while at least.
We’re first time brick and mortar business owners and we’re really trying to make our little family business thrive in a world that is run by “the man”. I have a lot of ideas that I hope to bring into the shop, for instance I want to import stuff from the states and be able to sell it. Things like special coffee beans (ie: sugar cookie) and little things like that we all love back home.
We are located right next to Centre Point by Granada Mall next to where Caffa used to be. You cannot miss us. We also have a website right here and you can follow us on twitter or instagram. I really hope you all here in Riyadh stop by and enjoy it for yourselves.
