More than just a café, here are 6 wellness communities in Dubai

Join a yoga class, grab some dinner, catch up with a friend and shop for wholesome goodies, all without giving up your parking spot… 

Living in Dubai comes with its (many) perks but, for some, work/life balance doesn’t sit at the top of that list. But, this fast-paced city is full of surprises.

We’ve compiled a list of gorgeous cafés where community, coffee, and wellness collide. Whether you like your eggs with a side of yoga or your coffee with a splash of surf, here are 6 feel-good spaces in Dubai you won’t want to leave…

100 Café, The Hundred Wellness Centre

the hundred wellness

You’ll find 100 Cafe at The Hundred Wellness Centre in Jumeirah, which takes a holistic approach to wellbeing. The café serves up a whole host of innovative plant-based dishes, cold-pressed juices, teas and coffees, ensuring you’re getting all the good stuff. Bag a seat out in the tranquil garden and take a deep breath.

100 Cafe, The Hundred Wellness Centre, Villa 21, 53 B St, Jumeirah, Dubai, open Saturday to Thursday 8 am to 6pm. Tel: (0)56 164 8924. thehundred.ae



Nette, located at the Matcha Club in Al Quoz, is the gorgeous sister café to Cassette. A trendy café nestled between yoga studios and padel courts, it’s home to a wholesome menu, although Nette may surprise you with its lean toward Japanese ingredients – a nod, we assume, to the name of the wellness club it’s housed within. Whether you fancy a game of padel or just want to sit with a good book and people-watch, dig into their divine dishes like the nutrient-filled matcha acai bowl or miso eggs Benedict.

Nette at Matcha Club, Al Quoz, daily 8am to 10pm. Tel: (0)4 548 8369. @nettedxb
