Situated in one of Badaro’s alleyways is Molo, a cafe, restaurant, and pub with very chilled-out vibes. I first discovered Molo in 2021 and have become a frequent visitor since. The staff members always make sure that the visitors feel welcome. The menu includes some local bites and a Lebanese breakfast, but Molo is best known for its pizzas, served on a wooden plank. The menu is also rich with different types and flavors of hot tea, coffee, and signature cocktails, many of which are infused with herbs.
On the outside, Molo boasts a small garden seating, and on the inside, a cozy and dimly-lit interior. Be sure to make a reservation, as it can get crowded on weekends. Whether on a rainy winter night or during a nice afternoon spring breeze, Molo welcomes everyone in with a smile and a taste of local hospitality. If you’re coming by in the morning, continue your day by doing one of many close-by activities such as taking a creative class at Creativenass, visiting Lebanon’s local museum, or simply getting lost in Badaro’s streets!
