If you’re a fan of Cassette in Al Quoz, then you’re going to love NETTE.
Located at Al Quoz’s boutique padel club, MATCHA Club, the French-Japanese restaurant comes to us from the team behind neighbourhood cafe Cassette and aims to replicate the success of the sociable spot at The Courtyard.
Chef Shaunne Cordier’s thoughtful menu celebrates the best of both French and Japanese cuisine and has been created with sharing in mind. Breakfast offers sweet and savoury options, such as the Honey Matcha Bowl and Egg Sando Sandwich. There is also a range of nutritious and delicious salads and sandwiches, including the Miso Braised Beef French Dip Sandwich and the Avocado and Seaweed Salad Sandwich.
Desserts come in the form of Vegan Matcha & Chocolate Eclairs, Japanese souffle Crème Brûlée Buttermilk Pancakes and French toast served with matcha mascarpone, yuzu curd, yuzu macerated seasonal berries & toasted pecan.
Inspired by padel tennis, NETTE’s geometric design is influenced by the net, the court and the game itself. Mixed with hues of terracotta, shades of green and natural tones (greys and beige), habitual materials have been used as much as possible to contrast the industrial feel of the surrounding area. Making a statement inside the restaurant sits the open coffee bar, flanked by floor to ceiling glass windows on either side. NETTE’s coffee comes from Three Roasters Coffee, a roastery located a stone’s throw away from the restaurant.
Outside is a shaded courtyard with a mango tree in the middle, which seats up to 43 guests.
From a quick lunch or well-earned dinner following a game of padel to a family breakfast at the weekend or a fresh coffee whilst answering some emails, NETTE looks like Dubai’s next Insta-worthy cafe to visit.
