Cats, coffee, Lebanese cuisine, and a boutique? This Maadi villa is truly an encapsulation of the authentic Lebanese experience.

Beit Lebnen at Villa Felt is Simply a Lebanese Home Away From Home

When the day starts off with an inexplicable and unyielding desire to while away the hours while listening to Fairuz, there really is only one place to go to truly live out that fantasy to the fullest, and that’s Villa Felt in Maadi’s Sarayat. Bringing a true feeling of the authentic Lebanese experience, this Beirut-esque destination is at once a café, a restaurant and a boutique store that is unapologetically proud of its heritage.

There is not much that rivals a slow morning with a cup of coffee in hand and some furry friends lapping around your feet, but add to that an elevated Levantine dining experience and some good ol’ retail therapy? That’s the slow-life equivalent of gold. 

Batata Harra, Fattet Betenjen, Shish Barak, and signature Lebanese grills in town, Villa Felt’s Beit Lebnen is exactly that; a home, and one we didn’t want to leave. So next time ‘Bil Kharif’ plays on shuffle, put on a nice pair of shoes, and head to Maadi’s Villa Felt - open every day from 9 AM to 12 PM.
