Nestled in the heart of residential Jumeirah is SocietyDXB Café & Lounge, a cool, contemporary eatery with a refreshing approach to interiors and food. Open from 8am to 6pm daily, Society DXB is the perfect casual daytime spot serving up a goodness-focused menu of light, fresh foods and delicious coffees and teas.
The café features a bright, airy atmosphere with high ceilings and glass panels to let natural sunlight filter through – a rare find in our urban jungle. The décor is industrial chic, with natural wood and lush greenery lending just the right touch of warmth. The space was inspired by founder Sheikha Al Muhairy’s love for conservatories and SocietyDXB has totally nailed the concept's inspiration.
The menu is eclectic and unpretentious; familiar internationally inspired dishes served with a unique Middle Eastern flair. Locally-sourced, quality ingredients form the foundation of a curated range of dishes designed to cater to a full spectrum of dietary requirements. Our favorite was one of the new vegan menu items, the Baked Cauliflower with romanesco, almonds and fresh herbs, which offered a delicious take on the traditional vegetable. The portions are generous, you can easily split a starter and a main between two. The coffee was delightful, freshly brewed with quality beans by expert baristas; unmissable if you ask us.
We never actually got around to trying SocietyDXB’s in-house bakery but from what we have heard, the pastries are to die for, hardly surprising as they looked irresistible.
Freshly brewed coffee, delicious food and a relaxed contemporary atmosphere make SocietyDXB one of our favorite daytime weekend spots.
