Come for coffee, tea and conversation, and walk away with new friends and innumerable tips on how to make the most of your time in Kuwait . Although the locations change, the friendship and fun is always a constant! Everyone is welcome.

Coffee Mornings are held every Monday morning (except Bank Holidays) from 10am – 12noon at a variety of locations and all are welcome either as a member or a guest.
