Vegetarian and vintage delights at a charming café
In keeping with its location in the Al Fahidi district, this boutique hotel is affiliated with one of Dubai's most prominent art galleries. In addition to its nine bedrooms, each individually decorated by a local artist or designer, the XVA Art Hotel's vegetarian Café creates art in an edible form.
Beautifully presented dishes, including inventive sandwiches like eggplant burgers with cucumber, tomato, and feta, or pumpkin roti, and salads like the tabouleh are served to an artsy mix of locals and visitors alike. Join the indie crowd in the lovely courtyard dining area, and make sure to order the fresh mint lemonade — the Café's version of the refreshing drink is not to be missed.
