Where to eat

% Arabica
Mall of the Emirates

When in Dubai, Mall of the Emirates is a must visit place on every tourist’s itinerary list. Right? Once there, just follow your nose to find this Japanese coffee shop to satisfy your caffeine addiction. Located at level one, this speciality coffee shop in Mall of the Emirates will make any coffee addict go nuts. The brand serves with the goal of letting its customers ‘See the World Through Coffee’.

The hot/iced cup of coffee feels like having something original and authentic which has its own unique aroma and flavour. The coffee options available are limited but you will come back for them for sure. The flavours on the list are Espresso, Macchiato, Americano (hot and iced), Caffe Latte (hot and iced), Spanish Latte (hot and iced), Dark Latte (hot and iced), Matcha Latte (hot and iced), Choco (hot and iced), and drip based special coffee. The cafe also sells the best beans from across the world including Ninety Plus. The cafe is 99 percent about coffee and eats-wise the options are limited to just a couple of different (though delicious) croissants and bakes.

Talking about the design aesthetics, the brand has clearly followed the minimalistic approach in elegance. The floor to ceiling glass entrance door, coffee sacks lined vertically and the brand name shining in bright neon light will surely grab your attention. Once inside the coffee shop, you will find interiors to be very earthy and attractive. The seating options are limited as there are few benches in the front and few single seating options in right corner.

The cute coffee cups designed with cute % signs are made of 100 percent recyclable paperboard.

For their regular customers, there is a loyalty card for customers which is easy to get when you pay for your first coffee at the brand. The card offers a free coffee after a purchase of five coffees.

You may find the prices slightly on the steep side with the average price of a coffee lying between Dhs 25 - 30 but for its taste and location, the coffee shop has never been seen empty. The cafe also has its outlets in Dubai Mall and City Walk in Al Safa.
