Having studied, worked and travelled across the world, we were inspired by the chilled-out back streets of New York, while working in various cafés in the city. The atmosphere of Manhattan’s long avenues, where people “can walk, chat, and enjoy their time, feeling stress-free”, helped to inspire the new café’s concept and name a world away in Dubai.
The menu at Friends’ Avenue Café features a fresh blend of Australian, English and European favourites, all competitively priced. The carefully selected breakfast menu features a wide variety of dishes, ranging from “Back to Hawaii” French Toast to the “Must Have” Brekkie Board. While the lunch menu consists of freshly made sandwiches, crunchy salads and carefully selected main courses.
As for the drinks, the café’s resident barista, brings a wealth of experience to Friends’ Avenue, serves only the freshest of coffee, brewed from beans roasted in Dubai by local roastery RAW Coffee Company, and enjoys experimenting with his own recipes. With Friends’ Avenue Café the first of a handful of planned ventures, the three food and coffee lovers believe that now is an exciting time for Dubai’s food scene with the growing popularity of young, homegrown and independent food concepts.
