While we were on our way shopping in the Deira part of the town, we got lost and ended up in the busy streets of Naif. As our little girl was hungry, we thought of picking up some food on the go. That’s how we came across Beatbox Cafe.
The cafe is located in Naif Road near Baniyas Square and it is five minuets from the metro station. Let me warn you, it is hard to get parking near the cafe and its best to order-in or do a take-away. In fact, we never got parking and we packed our food and had it in the car.
The atmosphere outside the cafe is not feasible for families. But inside the cafe, it is a different story. Though the cafe is small, the interiors are bright and cheerful. The friendly and helpful staff were always around and took good care of us when we were in the cafe for the short period.
Beatbox is a fast food concept which offers burgers, sandwiches, wraps and drinks that are pocket friendly. Everything is made in-house from their breads to other ingredients.
On arrival, we were offered complimentary sweet treats like Strawberry Cream, Chickoo Cream and Mango Cream. They had fruit pulp, cream and fresh fruit pieces and tasted great. We especially liked the Mango Cream.
For our drinks we ordered The Watolemoberry, a refreshing mixed fruit juice and The Butter Moon, a decadent peanut butter flavored freak shake.
As their Chili Fries were highly recommended by their staff, we had to order those spicy fries and it didn’t disappoint us.
They offer a good range of burgers and we ordered two of their specials- Chick & Cheesy and Popeye Burger. We loved the juicy cottage cheese based Chick & Cheesy Burger. Its a great option for vegetarians. My little girl who tried the Popeye burger didn’t like it. I could see that it was soggy within two minutes of serving.
We also tried their sub bun sandwich- The Shroomwhich. It was loaded with mushroom and cheese and tasted fantastic. A must-try for mushroom lovers. All their burgers, sub buns and wraps come with a side of fries.
Beatbox Cafe offers good food and drinks that is reasonably priced in a friendly venue. You can give them a try if you are in that neighborhood. The best thing to do is order-in or take-away.
