Does Dubai need another homegrown specialty coffee shop? If it looks like Have Coffee Dubai then yes, absolutely. Find out why The HUNTR has fallen in love with this Box Park gem now…
Located in Box Park on Al Wasl Road, Have Coffee Dubai is the brainchild of an Emirati (Al Ain born). The founder created the striking new cafe to offer noteworthy coffee in a spectacular setting and boy has he achieved a triumph…
Complete with fold-away glass doors that bring the outside in, Have is beautifully laid out – the stark concrete floor and sofas and the industrial exposed ceiling is softened with potted greenery and wooden details along with soft, pristine cushions and the occasional knitted throw. The coffee bar is done in shiny silver metal and there are strip lights underfoot that add a relaxing ambiance. The music is cool (but ever so slightly too loud – especially for 7 am when we visited) and there are two private pods with glass doors for R&R, Zoom calls, meetings, and the like.
The free WiFi on offer makes Have a great spot to study or get work done (as do the aforementioned pods) and there are ample seating arrangements for small and large groups – including an expansive road-facing outside seating area.
Drinks-wise the coffee is currently powered by Aussie roastery Veneziano and there is a range of hot and cold creations, plus dairy milk and non-dairy milk (oat, soy, coconut, almond). We sampled the Cortado and Cold Brew. Food-wise there are freshly baked pastries and desserts, açai, soft serve, dates, crepes, and waffles. And for those who don’t like coffee, you can choose from water, mojitos, and smoothies.
One might say that you Have all you need here. Something tells us that was the aim… see you there!
