Cue Whimsical Cafe offers a soft serve with cotton candy while Auburn Cafe has intriguing flavors like MangoBerry, Mixtachio, Kunafa, and Iced Meringue.

Ice cream, music, sights, and art

You can enjoy not just your favorite ice cream flavors but you can also enjoy live music from the Music Affairs Center. Art lovers can also stop by at the "In Downtown" exhibition in collaboration with Alhosh Gallery and the support of Seashore Qatar. The art exhibition features 17 artists from Qatar.
