A new addition to the much-loved Villa 515 Perfumery and Boutique (more on that here), Cafe Villa 515 has been filling out with those in the know since it opened in September 2020. Join your friends at The Huntr as we present an exclusive look inside…
Picture this. A beautiful courtyard, a dreamy, green garden, natural sunlight, the soothing sound of chirping birds, and the smell of freshly baked bread. Ahh. You must have just arrived at Cafe Villa 515 – a secret gem in Jumeirah 3.
From the folks behind the perfumery and boutique of the same name, this homegrown gem is open daily and serves speciality coffee and tea alongside dishes that can be enjoyed for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. When the weather permits there is ample picturesque outside seating and there are plenty of table options inside for small and large groups. The vibes are casual but inspiring, think marble tables, wooden chairs with leather accents, a green wall, industrial exposed ceilings, terrazzo flooring, and clay pots scattered around filled with green plants.
Still in a semi soft-launch phase when The Huntr visited, the menu is divided between savory breakfast options, sweet breakfast plates, side dishes, salads, mains (beef or veggie sliders and pan-roasted salmon for soft-launch phase) plus a variety of tempting desserts and freshly baked treats from the display counter. We visited for breakfast and tried the Avocado Toast (39AED) which comes with guacamole, poached egg, homemade (on-site baked) sourdough bread, and a side salad. It was fresh, simple, and tasty. Plus the French Toast (46AED), which encompasses homemade brioche bread, mascarpone cheese, and mixed berry jam – fluffy and with the perfect balance of buttery, creamy and sweet flavours, it’s a must-order for all French Toast fans.
The free WiFi makes this family-friendly, alcohol-free spot a great place to study or get work done, just avoid peak times if you want some quiet because despite being open for just under 2 months, Cafe Villa 515 is already as bustling as Covid-19 and social distancing restrictions will allow… See you there!
