Updated with reactions from Qatar residents

The once-popular and now empty food stand at the end of the Corniche near Sheraton Park will reopen as a Costa Coffee this spring.

Hoardings for the new shop recently went up on the Corniche. The previous stand, which sold popcorn, QR2 karak and other various drinks and snacks, closed about a year ago after the Municipality opted not to renew its license.

Speaking to Doha News today, construction workers on the site said they have been working to overhaul the interior of the stand for the past three months.

Representatives of design and contracting company Blueprint, which is managing the project, said 70 percent of the work has been completed since construction began in mid-January.

The coffee shop will have indoor and outdoor seating, and are targeting an opening for mid-March, they added.
