We appreciate we’re a little (a lot) late to the party, but we have been obsessed with this Dubai hidden gem for a while now, we just haven’t had the chance to write about it! We say ‘hidden gem’ because for a lot of expats, Jumeirah 1 is no where near our Dubai reality, and feels a million miles down the Jumeirah Beach Road – but Comptoir 102 is well worth the drive ladies!
With a delicious healthy menu (we have visit for breakfast, lunch, and sweet treats in the afternoon), its unique boho vibe is a breath of much needed fresh air in Dubai. Enjoy an organic menu of buckwheat pancakes with organic maple syrup & fresh berries for breakfast, soba noodles with mango for lunch, and the Amasake is must try for afternoon tea (fermented Amasake with cardamon, cinnamon and almond milk).
Enjoy a girlie breakfast after your weekend morning workout, or bring your Mum when she visits (to show her it’s not all tall buildings, fancy cars, and plastic faces, we have wholesome too!), then visit the Comptoir 102 concept store with a curated eclectic mix of fashion, interior design and furniture from around the globe.
In the Winter you can sit outside and enjoy the courtyard, we highly recommend this Dubai hidden (totally well known) gem!
Open 7:30AM – 9PM daily.
