Word is steadily spreading about this being a go-to for an exceptional cup of specialty coffee. Grab a seat in the cozy garden area and enjoy it.



Nightjar


This amazing coffee concept actually won “Best Overall Coffee Concept 2019”. It's pretty much

mandatory that you go and see what all the fuss is about. Nightjar not only offers incredible eats, and out of this world coffee, but it is also an artisanal coffee roaster. It truly is all about the beans, and the process, here. The geniuses behind Nightjar actually go out and source the beans themselves. Then, they're roasted to the epitome of perfection, right here in Dubai. Seasonal varietal blends are available to purchase, so you can take the flavor home with you. But, with its cool design, and hip yet laid back vibe, you might find leaving difficult.
