Just when I thought that I’ve been to the simplest to the fanciest cafes in Dubai, and then I come across One Cafe by Life ‘n One. It is one of the most unique and serene cafes in Dubai. It is a hidden gem in Jumeirah, in fact I felt like I was in a garden cafe in one of the exotic Asian countries like Thailand, Indonesia or Vietnam.
Nestled in a villa-style venue in Jumeirah, Life ‘n One is a wellness centre with a yoga studio. It also offers meditation and Pilates. It’s tranquil garden is truly an urban retreat, away from the hustle bustle of the city.
Life ‘n One also houses a cafe in it’s garden. It is a vegan cafe serving healthy, organic and plant based food. All their food served in the cafe is gluten free, diary free, refined sugar free, allergen free, soy free and GMO free.
The cafe is housed in the green and serene garden. The beautiful garden features cobbled pathways, fountains, eco friendly furniture, swings, log tables and motivational quotes.
The atmosphere is relaxed, cosy and homey. Perfect place to read a book or work on the laptop or just to relax and enjoy the surroundings. The soothing music in the background enhanced our experience at the One Cafe.
The Almond Pina Colada made with almond milk, pineapple, agave, lemon juice, coconut flakes and banana was an excellent and refreshing drink. We didn’t like the Almond Chai Latte as we found it tasteless.
One Cafe has an all day breakfast menu and from that menu, we ordered an Acai Bowl. The Acai Bowl had a delicious mix of acai berries blended with banana, chia seeds and cacao nibs and it was served in a coconut bowl. What a delicious way to start our morning.
As a huge lover of Avo on Toast, I was delighted to see it on the menu and that’s the next dish we ordered. It had gluten free in-house made bread topped with Mexican avocados and cherry tomatoes, rocket leaves and seasoning. It was wholesome and tasty.
We also ordered Baked Sweet Potato Fries as our side dish. It came along with garlic mustard mayo.
Next we ordered one of their popular dishes in the menu- Zucchini Pasta. It was our favorite dish in the cafe. Zucchini Pasta had the perfect combination of zucchini and medley of veggies with Thai spicy sauce.
One Cafe also offers healthy desserts and we ordered Ice Cream Sandwich. The scrumptious ice cream sandwich was made with homemade forest berries sauce, nuts, coconut milk, cacao, berries and vanilla.
The food at the cafe is fresh, healthy and tasty. The service was good too. The ambience is amazing, best way to de-stress and unwind in this beautiful urban retreat.
With the adjoining wellness centre and yoga studio that offers various classes, Life ‘n One is definitely a centre where you can nourish your body, mind and soul.
I am in love with this place and can’t wait to come back.
