Depresso. Sounds depressing, doesn’t it? But Depresso Cafe Dubai is anything but. Named after “that feeling you get when you’ve run out of coffee”, this adorable little cafe in Umm Suqeim needs to be added to your Huntr hitlist stat. Here’s why…
Nestled inside Umm Suqeim close by to The Huntr’s fave wholesome eatery The Raw Place and the popular Poke Poke restaurant, Depresso Cafe is a relatively new speciality coffee addition to Dubai’s flourishing caffeine scene. A tiny little bolthole of a place, this spot can probably only house 10-15 stay-in diners and is fitted out with a cute interior featuring concrete and wood elements.
Drinks wise there’s plenty to tempt here, including the original coffee favourites such as the flat white (18/21AED), Americano (17/20AED) and iced latte (23AED). For the more adventurous coffee connoisseur, there’s a bounty of strange sounding creations including a cereal-topped latte (25AED) and the incredibly Instagrammable ‘Pink Choco’ (25AED). Cute touches are key here, and coffee is served complete with a miniature doughnut – a match made in heaven.
The Huntr also sampled a decadent melted chocolate dessert, which was tasty and the perfect accompaniment to our coffee. Depresso also serves a range of freshly baked croissants and some salads. The staff are very friendly and accommodating, and this place has quickly shot to the top of our ‘Favourite Places to get Coffee in Dubai’ list. Make sure you check it out soon!
