Hopping for coffee shop is our main purpose for travelling from Karama to the secluded area of Al Quoz. We’ve been looking forward for this exploration months ago until we finally hit it. Indeed, we’ve been very eager to try this famous environmentally conscious café just very close from the Art galleries – exactly next to the Courtyard Gallery.
The place is called The Lime Tree Cafe. It is a Kiwi-owned cafe serving healthy fresh food and homemade cakes.
The location is quite interior so I advise to either drive a car or take a taxi since it would take you approximately 30 minutes or more to get to the nearest metro just by walking.
The shop is pretty big and so inviting. It has industrial concept combined with homely accent. You can instantly tell that it is an organic shop just by looking at the interiors and design.
I just love the charming atmosphere. It is like a haven for people who are looking for a relaxing quiet time to chill out while reading their complimentary magazines and newspapers.
They have an array display of their retail products such as homemade delicacies: relishes & chutneys, various crackers, biscotti, dipping sticks and muesli which are adorably packed.
The food are displayed in a refrigerator and the order is paid by the counter. They offer breakfast and serves fresh daily menu.
Here’s what we order:
- Key Lime Cake
A double layered lime cake filled & iced with a lime zested cream cheese frosting & coated with shards of coconut
- Mushroom, Beef Bacon & Cream Cheese Club Sandwich
- Blended Mocha Coffee
Such a welcoming environment and I consider it as one of my favourite cafe in Dubai! Even though Pinay Flying High doesn’t seem to fancy it. Haha Looking forward on visiting the rest of their branches.
