Café 302 is the newest café concept from the Rotana brand. Located within Al Maha Arjaan by Rotana, Café 302 offers a selection of wholesome dishes and sweet treats. The décor is trendy yet comfortable and features earthly tones. The cosy space is ideal to sit down, catch up with friends or hold short meetings.
Cuisine includes hand-crafted masterpieces of steak and seafood, healthy salads, selections of freshly baked breads and buns with tantalising fillings, savoury pies and quiches. This delicious selection can all be washed down with Café 302’s freshly made coffees or a range of healthy beverages. One of Café 302’s must-have drinks is its signature Kyoto Coffee, which originates from Japan. The coffee takes 10 – 12 hours to brew and is best enjoyed when served over ice. Brewing towers are placed within the café for fresh blends, giving guests the chance to indulge and enjoy.
My absolute favourite dish has to be the spinach and kale salad with dates, cashew, feta cheese and pomegranate dressing. Now it’s not every day I get excited about a salad….actually I don’t think I ever have but I would drive across town for this one. I love the way the team have blended healthy and trendy ingredients such as spinach and kale but added a nice local influence with the use of dates.
Another star dish is The Café Burger, Angus beef topped with melted cheese on a toasted bun served with fries. This is comfort food at its best. The burger is so big we have to cut it into four pieces.
The potted banana creamed pie, macadamia nut crust and soft caramel dessert is delicious. Fresh cuts of banana are placed within thick layers of soft cream then drizzled in an abundance of caramel. This is one dessert guaranteed to make you go “mmm”.
Solemnly do we find a café that is as consistent with its food as it is its desserts but Café 302 is. All the portions at Café 302 are very generous ensuring you and your wallet can both leave feeling full. If we had had any room left we would have tried the Nutella and hazelnut crunch milkshake, but until next time.
Those on-the-go have a wide selection of take-away dishes. Café 302 also provides a range of retail products, such as its premium pressed virgin olive oils and organic food items as well as fresh baked breads.
