This vaguely Middle Eastern–North African–Mediterranean gem on the ground floor of the Chester Beatty Library is no ordinary museum cafe. Complementing house specialities including Greek moussaka and spinach lasagne are daily specials such as djaj mehshi (chicken stuffed with spices, rice, dried fruit, almonds and pine nuts). All dishes are halal and kosher.

The cafe also serves an Afternoon Tea with a Twist (€23), which features no cucumber sandwiches or scones but treats from 15 different countries such as sushi, chicken schwarma parcels and Persian love cakes.
