Café 302

Since its inception Café 302 has established itself as one of the leading cafés in the city. Located within Al Maha Arjaan by Rotana, Café 302 offers diners a selection of wholesome dishes and sweet treats.

The décor is trendy yet comfortable and features earth like tones. The cosy space is ideal to sit down and talk with friends, hold short meetings or just catch up on a few emails.

As well as an extensive main menu Café 302 caters for vegetarians and now vegans with the introduction of their new vegan menu. Today I will be trying a few dishes from their new vegan menu whilst my dining companion revisits their main menu.

To start we are given a selection of complimentary breads with a cream cheese, olive and anchovy dip. It tastes so good, the warm fresh bread is hard to resist and we must restrain ourselves to ensure we don’t eat it all.

From the vegan menu I order the Spinach and Kale Salad, dates, cashews and pomegranate dressing, Cold Mezza of Olives, Dips and Spreads, hummus, tabbouleh, moutabel, picked vegetables and crisp flatbread and the Sweet Potato Fries with house dip.

Some of you will recognise the Spinach and Kale Salad from the main menu, this is one of the most ordered dishes at Café 302, we are pleased to see that they have adapted it for their vegan guests. The salad tastes just as great as the main menu version, the only item that has been removed is the feta cheese. The Cold Mezza is delightful and the portion can easily be shared between two people. The Sweet Potato Fries are my favourite. Perfectly crisp, I will be sure to order these again.

From the main menu my dining companion orders the Sticky Chicken Wings ‘Lollipop Style’, covered in sweet and spicy soy glaze and the Fork and Knife Caesar, baby gem, parmesan, boiled egg and beef rashers with roast chicken. Both dishes are well presented however the spicy soy glaze on the chicken wings tastes phenomenal.

Overall Café 302 makes for the perfect lunch spot and we predict that it is set to remain one of Abu Dhabi’s most popular cafes. Their extensive menus and welcoming ambiance is an award-winning combination but now with them adding vegetarian and vegan menus, this café is set to attract an even larger crowd.
