This cafe operated by news broadcaster Al Jazeera serves decent salads and mains, from chicken tikka and fish and chips to pan-roasted salmon and tenderloin steak. The main reason to visit, however, is to use the interactive studio, where visitors can pretend to be a news anchor and record a broadcast. Cafe tables double as work stations (with power outlets).

Bring a flash drive so you can save your news broadcast and take it home with you. The cafe is located northeast of the Katara Amphitheatre.
