The ambience of this coffee shop is very similar to almost every single coffee shop out there but they also have an outdoor arrangement on the beach so that you feel extra relaxed while sipping coffee.

When you walk in here you see that there are a lot of vintage decorations here like old radios and vintage furniture. This kind of set-up gives you the vibe of sitting at home rather than in a cafe for a cup of coffee.

There are different types of coffee available here and you can also have some from Columbia, Ethiopia, and Kenya. There are also pastries and cookies available made by the local bakers and also some of them are homemade as well.

These were the few cafés and coffee roasters we think you should check out once you get here. And of course, if you love coffee then there are some interesting facts that you need to know. 

You don’t have to go far-off places to get a decent cup of coffee as many homegrown companies are literally in every neighbourhood. The coffee beans used here are organic and locally sourced as well and with the laid-back and comfortable environment, it feels the best.

The coffee scene here is not as glamorous as it gets with the culinary scene in Dubai. Every cafe that you see here has made its name in the coffee industry here and is all about being casual and making it feel like home rather than a Michelin star.

So whether it is a flat white that you want or a fresh cup of latte, it is going to be casual and these cafes have defined the coffee scenes in Dubai. Now we have talked about how the cafes and coffee scenes, in general, are played safe but you can also find something exciting too. 

The playing safe part is inclusive too for the people who can’t afford the glam in coffee. You can find themed cafés here as well. For example, many coffee places are themed around pop culture and rock and roll too.

So technically, Dubai is not always about glamour but you can count on the causal scenes as well. You can go for anything as it all depends on what you can afford and what suits you as well.
