Spill the Bean
Located among Al Quoz’s industrial factories and warehouses which house Alserkal Avenue’s trendy contemporary art galleries, this spot has all of the makings of the perfect indie coffee shop. The pastries are excellent, the bright, high-ceilinged space is a great place to perch and work, and the coffee is some of the best in Dubai. All blends are 100 percent organic and fair trade, and the staff is knowledgeable and friendly. If not at the Alserkal Avenue space, you might come across the coffee anyway, as they’re known for their pop-ups around the city.
