The Citadel Cafe revamped

USAID BEST has supported the Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities to revamp the Citadel Café, located at the Amman Citadel, to improve the visitor experience and product offerings at one of Jordan’s popular tourist attractions.

USAID BEST developed and implemented an interior design, provided new kitchen equipment and employee uniforms, rebranded the café, and helped create a new menu. BEST will also provide safe food handling and hospitality training for cafe employees to ensure high standards. The theme of the café reflects the spirit of downtown Amman with photos of daily life on display.

The café is set to open later this month and offers seating for up to 14 visitors. The new menu includes cold and hot beverages, pastries, sandwiches and snacks.
