A hidden gem tucked away within Al Barari, Third Wave is a new cafe serving up a curated menu of coffee and Japanese tea. It’s also home to a fully-vegan menu including tempting desserts and a variety of milk alternatives. Inspired by a Japanese Teahouse, Third Wave aims to create bespoke drinks with unconventional flavours and aromas.

Terra Eatery is a design-focused space, created with natural materials to create an earthy interior, which aims to create ‘a retreat from the buzzing city’. You’ll find the hidden gem tucked away in Al Safa, although the spot is currently in a soft opening period.

You know you’re comfortable with the staff at your favourite coffee shop when you can walk in and ask for ‘the usual’. At The Usual in Jumeirah 1, they’re all about connecting people through coffee in their aesthetically pleasing cafe. Offering a range of speciality coffees, milk options and some signature sweet treats, it’s the ideal place to grab a cup of Joe.
