The Bee Cafe Abu Dhabi is part of the ‘Be the Change’ campaign by the Zayed Higher Organization for People of Determination. Join The Huntr as we present a closer look…
The inspiring ‘Be the Change’ campaign includes the opening of the Bee Cafe at the Zayed Higher Foundation Compound in the UAE capital. The homegrown speciality coffee shop is the first cafe of its kind to be run by the People of Determination themselves and it also offers specialised training to enable the People of Determination to obtain international certificates in the speciality coffee industry.
The Huntr visited and sampled three (very reasonably priced) speciality coffee creations – the Flat White (10AED), the Cappuccino (10AED) and the Spanish Latte (20AED). The cafe space is modern, slick and cosy – there are ample seating arrangements for small and large groups and free Wifi for those who need it to study or get some work done.
Food-wise, the offering is currently limited to vegan homemade cookies by Alia, I Can Cookies (priced at an extremely reasonable 1AED per cookie)
