Cafe in Jebel Shams

By the signpost for Dar Lawi, across from some picnic shelters (and derelict toilets best avoided), this simple one-storey establishment with a barasti (palm-frond) fence and small terraced sitting area is a favourite with water-tanker drivers. Join them for tea, fresh paratha and dal of the day (OR1) – and the chance to use a clean toilet.
