In some places, round­ing is about sim­plic­ity: fish mar­ket and mosque car parks, Dh1 tea, the Corolla and the Range Rover parked side by side. In the cap­i­tal, pres­tige mat­ters. So what bet­ter place for round­ing than a cof­fee shop on a prom­i­nent cor­ner be­tween Fer­rari and Maserati deal­er­ships? En­ter Il Caffe di Roma, an Ital­ian cof­fee shop that serves the Gulf’s favourite drinks. Once upon a time, peo­ple cir­cled the shore­line from port to Cor­niche to the break­wa­ter, maybe with some fried snacks from Ham­dan Street for good mea­sure. Now, traf­fic sig­nals in­ter­rupt the flow of round­ing and the city’s park­ing in­spec­tors means a stop at the In­dian snack shops can equate to hefty fines.
