Caribou Coffee, Dubai
Hello followers, friends and business owners! Remember the times when you looked for the best place to hang out at, enjoy a cup of coffee with friends or looked for a place to relax at, while working on a new project?
We found our creative zone, it is the big Caribou Coffee branch on Sheik Zayed Road, Dubai. It is the perfect place to combine a nice cup of coffee or tea with great, healthy food with hours of work that needs to be done. It was not our first time at the branch, it was however the longest we have ever been there.
Up on welcome we did not have to wait long until we were served. We ordered a cup of iced green tea, a turkey sandwich and a rocket salad with dried tomatoes and parmesan cheese. The sandwich was grilled and the tea made fresh. We made use of the time to take pictures of Caribou’s merchandising products and to look for the perfect spot to work from, for a couple of hours.
We were not alone. There were about four more tables occupied by work groups or single coffee lovers who seemed to forget everything around them while being busy on their laptops, phones or reading heavy books.
We also discovered a lot of couple coming and going, most of them met for casual business meetings. Caribou felt a little like a business hub on that day and we felt very inspired by the atmosphere, the crowd and the great view on Sheik Zayed Road.
The hours went by and we got a lot of work done. It was quiet, the kids play area empty, the power socket kept supplying the laptop with electricity and the sofa was super comfortable. Now and then one of the Caribou staff would pass by to clean tables, look after the upper deck guests and check if we needed something. It was not a lot interaction and guest engagement we experienced, it was adequate however, as all the staff values our privacy and productive mode on that day.
Did I mention how much we enjoyed our time there? The healthy food, the unique drinks and the great atmosphere are something very typical for every Caribou branch we have been to so far. From Tecom to Souk Al Bahar, we love Caribou, so much that we even bought one of their cups for home.
”Life is too short, stay awake for it” – a brand that uses such a strong statement, is a brand to watch out for! We hope to not only be working out of a Caribou branch in the future, we hope to be working with the Caribou – Team in the near future soon too.
Once again, thank you for the great experience,
