Until the summer heat kicks in, Kava & Chai’s most valuable asset is the fact that you can sit outside and enjoy its spectacular waterfront view of Dubai’s iconic creek. And although this quaint little tea and coffeehouse is nothing more than its namesake, that’s all you really need on a lazy Friday afternoon. That view and the intoxicating aroma of freshly brewed coffee.
Both coffees and teas on offer range from the exotic to the more run of the mill. We ordered the latter and were quite content just sitting outside watching the day turn to night. I was not impressed with their service. This is a new café/coffee shop. Their servers and waitstaff need to be all over their customers, making an impression beyond the tea/coffee. Remember guys, the view will pale once the heat sets in. That said, this is a worthy alternative to the mainstream franchises.
Waste NOT. Want NOT.
