Check out these great spots to sip a freshly-brewed coffee and watch the world go by

  • S34

    Recently opened, S34 is a home-grown concept taking inspiration from the coffeehouses found in old Dubai, and the alleys of the Al Fahidi neighbourhood. As a contrast to the traditional flavours, the décor of S34 is bright, vibrant and contemporary. Playing up to S34’s authentic roots, it’s a great place to sample gahwa, the traditional Arabic coffee with cardamom.

    Location: Terminal 3, C-Gates
  • Pret A Manger

    This deli-style café is a phenomenon in the UK, loved for its fresh, tasty fare and hip attitude. It’s the perfect grab-and-go before your flight, with a lovely range of organic coffee, soups, salads and sandwiches. With funky décor and friendly staff, it’s also a great place to linger if you have more time.

    Location: Terminal 1, D-Gates

  • Costa Deli

    You’ll never be far from Costa Coffee in DXB, with 18 outlets spread across three terminals. These include two very special Costa Deli cafes – one in Terminal 1 Arrivals and Terminal 3 Departures. Costa Deli offers a brilliant selection of freshly-made salads, sandwiches and coffees, including the refreshingly original Cold Brew, using 100% single origin Arabica Colombian beans.

    Location: Terminal 1 Arrivals and Terminal 3 Departures

  • Le Pain Quotidien

    With a focus on fresh and natural produce, Le Pain Quotidien is the place to savour a wholesome organic coffee. If you’re peckish, try the delicious boulangerie bites; from the tartines to the pastries and handmade organic bread, you’ll get maximum taste with minimum guilt.

    Location: Terminal 1 Arrivals 

  • Jones the Grocer

    DXB Terminal 3 is home to the first Jones the Grocer in an airport, serving the Australian brand’s single origin coffees, croissants, muffins, sandwiches, salads, soups and hearty mains. All items are made fresh daily and packaged ready for immediate takeaway, perfect if you’re looking for gourmet on the go.
