Roseleaf: Cute cafe cosiness with cracking coffee on a golf course


HUNTR members receive a complimentary cup of coffee with a main course purchase at Roseleaf Emirates Golf Club and Dubai Garden Centre. To redeem this perk, simply show proof of your membership via ‘My Account’ in the main menu bar above. 

Already fans of the original outpost at the Dubai Garden Centre, The HUNTR was delighted to visit this second outpost when it first opened in 2018. Named after its founder Rose Zeini, who first opened Roseleaf at the Dubai Garden Centre in 2012 with her husband Leon (who just happens to also be the guy behind the epic Dubai-based roastery Nightjar), Roseleaf is all about good coffee, food, and vibes…

Perfectly positioned just a stone’s throw from the Nakheel metro station, this little gem is the ideal place to enjoy a leisurely meal, grab a coffee and cake with friends or get some work done.

The space itself is simple but beautiful. Think cosy little round tables and chairs, displays filled with delicious-looking baked treats, a small retail corner offering the opportunity to support small homegrown businesses.

Food-wise, just like the flagship cafe, it’s all about healthy, hearty, and delicious eats here. There are some exclusive dishes that aren’t on offer at the Garden Centre outpost and an enticing selection of salads, bakes, and sandwiches on display on the front counter.

The HUNTR sampled the Avocado Chickpea Mash (40AED), which is comprised of Mexican Hass avocado and chickpeas on wild farmer toast and topped with feta cheese and seeds. You can also opt to add scrambled eggs for 10AED. The Healthy Belly Bowl (32AED) – a fibre packed combo of amaranth and millet with coconut milk and topped with fresh fruits and seeds. The Open-Faced Herbed Omelette (40AED), which only available at the Emirates Golf Club cafe and is topped with a fresh mix of herbs, avocado slices, and turkey bresaola. And last but not least, we also tried the Roseleaf Cafe Emirates Golf Club exclusive Body Breakfast (50AED) – a wholesome mixture of poached eggs, red potato, broccolini, asparagus, and Chinese cabbage seasoned with grains and seeds.

We also gladly slurped down the fantastic flat white coffees powered by, you guessed it – Nightjar. Full from our breakfast feast we didn’t have space to sample some of the cheat-day-worthy cakes on offer, but we plan to return soon to do just that…
