A new culinary heaven has arrived in Doha! Running for two months, this new gourmet café offers a selection of its finest groceries such as freshly baked artisan breads & handmade pastries, handmade pasta & sauces, truffle oils, premium tea leaves, luxury chocolates, flavoured ice creams, stylish homewares and premium gifts.
At the corner, you can find their Charcuterie. You can choose from Chorizo, Salami, Bresaola and Pastrami.
Next to that, I was thrilled when I saw that they have their own walk-in Cheeseroom!
As I enter the room, I was in heaven! The aroma of their wide selection of cheeses that includes extra matured Cheddar, Parmigiano-Reggiano, Gorgonzola, Truffle Brie, to name a few. All from the best cheese makers in the world.

With all the goodness around, I was unable to resist to ‘em tryout. While I wait for my friend, I ordered one of their gourmet sandwiches.
Tomato mozzarella & basil baguette with olive tapenade with greens (QR 28)
The sandwich was a bit hard to eat though and a bit messy because the baguette is toasted. But overall, all the flavors complimented each other, it was delectable!
I tried their flavoured ice cream for dessert, a scoop of hazelnut and vanilla (QR 15/2 scoops). I enjoyed the vanilla ice cream the most! You can taste and feel the texture of pure vanilla beans.
Jones’ offer breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Whether it’s a light baguette, salad or cheese and antipasto platter you’re after, or their famous Wagyu beef burger, there is something on the menu to suit all palates.
