This cute vegan-friendly café has been a hit since landing in Barsha Heights earlier in 2019. There are loads of plant-based dishes, as well as options for vegetarians and meat-eaters. Top picks include chilli-fried eggs with zaatar labneh, as well as sweet potato and kale frittata or interesting shakshuka breakfast tacos. For those wanting a lighter bite, go for the açai bowls, which are vegan and all are delicious. The cacao version is our favourite topped with banana cacao powder, fresh fruit and granola. The avocado pizza is also a winner.
