Roseleaf Cafe

Good Brew & Bake People

Nestled in the oasis of the Dubai Garden Centre on Sheikh Zayed Road, Roseleaf Café has been opened by a bunch of coffee-loving kiwis, offering home cooked kitchen goodness amongst a backdrop of garden greenery and eclectic domestic décor. 

Managed by Rose herself, the menu is unpretentious, affordable and, most importantly, feel-good. Using generational recipes, Rose serves up nourishing soups to fresh-thinking salads, along with signature baked sweet treats, sandwiches and daily lunch specials that will take your taste buds back home and then keep you coming back in for more. 

Roseleaf Café uses seasonal, single-origin coffee, batch-roasted by a certified ‘Q-Cup’ Roastmaster and then crafted with love by trained baristas who care. If you are a tea-lover, explore our range of whole-leaf premium teas, served in our old-school china teacups. 

Parking is no problem (front and back of the building) and the wi-fi is always on which makes either a speedy takeout or leisurely lunch meeting always an option. 

Finally...real coffee, real food and a space for those who are switched on to a good thing! 

My passion for home cooked food is one that is deeply ingrained, passed down to me through generations of formidable women in my life. Over the years these special moments and the sharing of recipes has imprinted a deep passion for food, cooking and the kitchen that is my sanctuary. The recipes shared with me have made my kitchen a place to welcome a constant circle of family and friends for home cooked meals with cultural influences from the Middle East, Australia and New Zealand.

In 2012, a time when independent cafes were only just emerging in Dubai, I established Roseleaf to offer homemade goodness with the special touches as you might expect in your hometown. All fuelled by the best specialty coffee I could source locally and roasted especially for us every week.

My philosophy is simple: I believe in offering fresh, quality, healthy, crafted goodness that is kind on your wallet.  Add into that a little bit of creativity, innovative touches to traditional recipes and a dedicated kitchen team, and you are sure to find that we’ve managed to create something magical to your taste.

Thank you for visiting, and I hope to see you at one of our cafes soon!
