magical coffee


In the very heart and soul of Madaba, a magical 20th century house was created next to the famed church that houses the legendary mosaic map of the Holy Land. Haret Jdoudna first came to life when Romero Groups’ Zaid Goussous teamed up with Ibrahim and Waddah Jumean. They had a vision… to transform a historical property into a magical village of restaurants, coffee shops and a traditional Jordanian Souk and Crafts Market.

From the moment it came to life, Haret Jdoudna was linked to Madaba, as was Madaba associated with Haret Jdoudna. Until our present day, it lives on to be a place where time seizes to exist, bringing together the past, present and future of an ancient city, Madaba. It is perceived as a well-known landmark and one of the best restaurants in Jordan.

The ancient house has live music and great Mediterranean cuisine that make all the ride from Amman very much worth it. Very recommended for tourists and Jordanians. Some may find it a bit pricey,but I think you get what you’re paying for.
In addition to the delicious food factor, the drive from Amman to Madaba is simply breath taking.

I recommend you try it.

Monday 8:27am
I woke up with you on my mind.
You called me babe last night —
my heart is still pounding.

Tuesday 10:53pm
Today I realized we won’t work.
What we are is hurting her.
And I think she matters more to me than you do.

Wednesday 11:52pm
I broke things off with you today.
She barely said a word.
I’ve never regretted anything more than this.

Thursday 4:03pm
I shouldn’t have sent that message.
You shouldn’t have been so okay with receiving it.

Friday 9:57pm
I almost messaged you today.
I didn’t.

Saturday 8:49pm
I’m walking around town in search of alcohol.
They say that liquor numbs the pain of having a broken heart.
I want to put that to the test.

Sunday 2:32am
I heard you texted a girl you’ve never spoken to before.
I wonder if it’s because you’re trying to replace me.
I can’t help but wish you weren’t.
I thought I was irreplaceable.
