Comptoir 102 was definitely LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT and I instantly fell in love with this fabulous cafe! It’s bohemian chic, sophisticated and perfect for a relaxing weekday or weekend breakfast or lunch. The cafe and dining space is attached to a little shop full of fashionable jewellery, beautiful homewares, textiles and interiors. The space is so inviting and attractive, it’s hard not to be drawn in and look at EVERYTHING!! It’s the perfect place for a girly catch-up and then be tempted by all the beautiful designer items in the shop 🙂

Wholesome healthy food. Dubai needs more cafes like this which provide simple, yet delicious and nutritious food! Cafe Comptoir 102 offers a small menu which includes raw, vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free or sugar-free options resulting in something really special and truly unique. The daily menu is ever changing according to the local organic produce that is available that day. A la Carte includes a selection of sandwiches, salads, freshly pressed green or fruit juices and smoothies made with organic homemade almond milk. It’s so DELICIOUS!
Green Smoothie: Spinach, fennel, pineapple, avocado and mint. A happy outside starts from the inside! I love Green Smoothies and this was made just how I like it!
Skin Glow: Pomegranate, cucumber and apple. Ooooooh yeah! This was so refreshing! Pomegranate is extremely rich in antioxidants, which helps improve skin quality. YUM!
All Green Salad: A bowl full of vitamins: Romaine, avocado, cucumber, fennel, walnut, parsley, spring onions, sunflower and pumpkin seeds, flax seeds, chia seeds, gomaiso and organic argan oil. I loved how this dish showed off the fresh local organic produce and packed full of goodies!
Fennel, Feta & Pomegranate Salad: A delicious combination of shaved fennel, crumbed feta, juicy pomegranate seeds, roasted pine nuts, radish and coriander.
Avocado Crostini: Gently toasted cereal bread topped with homemade fluffy macadamia sauce, alfalfa sprouts, avocado and cucumber slices, served with house salad. This was definately the dish of the day! I was so tempted to lick the macadamia sauce off the plate – so smooth and creamy… mmmmmmmm
Quinoa Nori Stack: Wow! Soft fluffy quinoa, avocado, cashew cream. It was a surprisingly delicious combination of flavours!
Choco Petit Pot: Satisfying and health conscious chocolate ganache (sugar-free, egg and dairy-free). Decadent chocolate mousse without the added nasties! Very Secret Squirrel xx.
Banana Chia Delice: This dessert is full of calcium, protein and healthy fats (sugar-free, dairy-free, gluten-free and vegan). Lovely ripe bananas mixed with coconut milk and chia seeds. I was so tempted to order another one! Yum, yum and more YUM!

 

There is a beautiful garden courtyard behind the cafe with lots of greenery and comfy seats as well as a front terrace area where you can lounge around in the sun chatting and sipping green smoothies all day! Alfresco dining, sunshine, nutritious healthy food, trendy fashionable cafe… it’s LOVE at first sight! ♥
