Ramadan in Doha can feel like a ghost town during the daytime with most restaurants, eateries, cafes and canteens closed until Iftar in the evening. Generally dining places open after sunset until 1.00 to 2.00am. However, for those of you not fasting it would be useful to know what venues are open in the daytime during Ramadan in Doha.
Qatar Eating has put together a list of those cafes and restaurants that are open during the day time. If you would like to add a venue to this list please comment below. Do note that whilst some venues may be open during the day they may only offer delivery – the dine-in option is usually not available until later on in the evening. If you are ordering delivery make sure to take into account a minimum of 30-40mins for delivery; there may also be other conditions for delivery such as a minimum spend so make sure to check when ordering.
