I LOVE this place. I love the ambiance. I love the light that comes in. I love that I feel like I'm sitting outdoors regardless the time of year. I love that they serve excellent coffee. I love their salads. I love that it's in the Garden Centre with the second hand bookstore that my daughter loves and the tropical fish shop that she loves looking through and the Saturday Posh Paws that she - and I - like to visit.
An unassuming cafe in the smartest of locations. Every few Friday mornings, we head here for breakfast, and despite it always being busy, there's somehow still always a seat. Offerings are so much better than simple toasted sandwiches, instead Roseleaf has rye bread, brie, pesto, sides of grilled mushrooms, spectacular scrambled eggs and healthy smoothies. The muffins are also pretty special. A saxophonist plays in the centre on the weekend mornings, and you'll inevitably want to buy some plants, fish, or garden furniture before you leave. All-in-all, this is a great little cafe, perfect for kicking off your weekend.
The Roseleaf Cafe is located at the famous Garden Center in Dubai but don't be fooled, you don't have to have a green thumb to enjoy a lovely coffee, breakfast or lunch in this amazing cafe. If anything, the surroundings make it more grounding and stimulating...it's just part of the decor to sit in the green house at the cafe with all the gorgeous greenery everywhere. The food is fresh and consistently provide a good experience. I guarantee you will love it. Weather you are looking for plants, furniture, coffee machines, city bikes, fish/pets food and articles or second hand books or flower arrangements....the Garden Center is the place to go and why not grab something at Roseleaf while at it!
