Let’s Eat? Yes please! Quick, fresh, affordable and pretty good.
At first glance, the coffee and sandwich shop on corner of the Gefinor complex seems rather plain. The decor is minimal, which tends to happen when an entire eatery, inside and out, is furnished in sleek, urban Danish design (BoConcept® to be exact). After all, Let’s Eat isn’t a café-restaurant that you spend the most part of the day working in, or hours dining and lounging; and the simple, unassuming decor drives that concept home.
Strategically located between the American University of Beirut, the American University Hospital and Gefinor business centre, Let’s Eat is at one of the most populated junctions off of Hamra. The lacking ambiance really keeps the focus on the freshly made and packaged food, and, most importantly, the freshly made variety of bread (and they are pretty yum!).
Packaged sandwiches, wraps, salads, a cup of dessert, pastries, and a cup of strong coffee make perfect grabs for a quick snack or lunch break. You can also enjoy a warm meal (say eggs, a pizza or a hearty dish-of-the-day) and dine in if you have a little more time to spare for a meaningful breakfast or lunch break. The variety of different foods, cups of joe, smoothies and milkshakes is actually stifling, and you may find yourself staring at the open fridges for a long while trying to figure exactly what kind of meal you want that day. The best thing about Let’s Eat is that you get a healthy, fresh food and generous portions for really affordable prices. The most expensive item on their menu is the grilled salmon salad (an actual piece of fish) at 15,000L.L. or a combo breakfast or lunch meal (and by combo we are talking five items at the least) at 15,000L.L. and 25,000L.L. respectively. Needless to say at Let’s Eat, you eat well and can afford to. To top it off, the perfectly coiffed waiters serve with a smile and occasional joke. You leave a pretty satisfied customer.
*On a side note, it is good to know that there is a branch on Sidani that stays open into the evening (10PM to be precise).
