I have a special link with More Cafe. When I first landed in the UAE ten years ago, I started working in for the Al Tayer Group in Garhoud, Dubai. To celebrate my joining the marketing team, my colleagues took me to lunch at More Cafe.
Suffering from home-sickness and missing the cafe culture of New Zealand, I immediately struck a cord with the welcoming vibes of the place and its naughty freshly-baked treats. Sadly the Garhoud branch closed down three years ago, but to my delight they now have a brand new branch at Murooj Duplex (bang opposite The Dubai Mall).
Revisiting More Cafe was such a treat! Apart from their enticing menu, here’s 10 reasons that make More Cafe so much more than your ordinary cafe:
- The Ambiance: Very spacious and stylish chic cafe-style culture.

- The Gifting Options: You can buy a wide array of kitchen gadgets, coffees, jams and customized bakery goods here.

- The Artists: More Cafe supports local artists, and has a wide number of oils on canvas and clay figurines on display.
