The café opens its Abu Dhabi outpost on Monday, 7 March.
Drop Coffee’s over 14,000 Instagram followers can attest that, between its minimalist interiors and specialities such as ‘Magick’ and ‘A Drop Less’, the café is one of Dubai’s best places to caffeinate. Now, it’s making its way to the capital, opening a new outpost at waterfront destination Yas Bay on 7 March. The new opening also welcomes the café’s first-ever culinary menu, translating to an eclectic mix of breakfast dishes, mains and all-day dining items – think: pancake sandwich with fried eggs, crispy cauliflower and kale salad, chicken schnitzel with avocado salad, grilled tiger prawns, and more.
With its team of world-class baristas hailing from around the globe – coffee hot spots Argentina, Venezuela, Uganda and South Africa included – and on a mission to deliver quality coffee by roasting the best imported beans daily, Drop enhances the UAE’s coffee culture with fresh cups of robust coffee made with one of nine different brewing techniques. And by collaborating with award-winning Chef Reif Othman on its food menu, the new branch in Abu Dhabi is guaranteed to impress foodies and coffee snobs alike. Bonus: coffee will be free from 7 to 13 March in celebration of the launch.
Ghanim Alqassim, co-owner of Drop Coffee, expressed his excitement about the new launch, saying, “With the launch of our first branch in the capital, we are excited to announce that we have made a major upgrade to the concept of Drop to now include a food menu that was created in collaboration with a world-class, award-winning chef while maintaining a strong emphasis on serving high-quality coffee that our customers are used to and retaining our distinct Drop personality and flair. We look forward to welcoming our Abu Dhabi friends to Drop.”
