Grounded is a small, minimalist, ultra-modern café in the lobby of the Renaissance Downtown Hotel in Business Bay. It’s run by people who know and quite obviously love coffee. In addition to hot beverages, it also offers fresh juices and an assortment of superb pastries, pies and tarts. Grounded benefits from the elegant ambiance of the Renaissance lobby and that expansive, full length view of the canal; I can think of few places in Dubai better suited for business meetings, or a simple, laid-back morning, afternoon or evening of lounging. Service is friendly and familiar. Worth a visit.
