Have You Tried The New Faseel Café in Fujairah?

The signage is up and the customers are walking in to the new Faseel Café on the ground floor of the Siji Hotel Apartments. There is public access from the street and hotel apartment access from within.

This new eating and drinking hole is on Al Nakheel Road across from the mosque and near the coffeepot roundabout. Check the map below for the location.

Here are some of the attractive features:

* The ambience is clean, fresh and bright.

* It has a colourful, floral décor that is sure to pick people up in the morning.

* It is spacious with a versatility of seating and tables—7 tables that can seat 4 people, 2 tables to seat 2 people and at each end of the café there is an arrangement of sofa or lounge type furniture.

* It has newspapers (Arabic and English), two TV monitors (with CNN and BBC) and WiFi so people can connect with the world in whatever way suits. This is a good place to come with your laptop and get a free, fast Internet service while you are supping your coffee.
