Healthy brunch at Organic Foods and Cafe
It’s very much a family affair at Organic Foods and Café, the chain of organic food restaurants and specialty supermarkets in the UAE that now boasts five separate locations since its 2004 launch – with one more to come on the Golden Mile, The Palm later this year.
The business is family run and it’s the warm, welcoming atmosphere of a neighbourhood eatery that they have successfully conveyed in each and every outlet – and that extends to their health-conscious weekend brunches. Every Friday and Saturday, the chain hosts a family-focused brunch that features fresh and delicious organic food prepared by its team of talented chefs. It’s split into two distinct themes to suit all tastes and diets: Vegan and gluten-free: The first Saturday of the month and the Friday before it serve up a brunch comprised of 100 percent vegan and gluten-free food.
International cuisine: The third Saturday of the month and the Friday before it host a themed brunch that caters to the taste and requests of loyal customers with South African, Emirati, Far-East, Indian and Filipino dishes to name a few. The selection includes a choice of soups and breads, salads, under the hot lamp, pasta’s, desserts and fruit platters.
Each of the brunches is priced at just AED99 for adults, AED70 for children between 5 and 12, and free for children under 5. It runs between 11am-3.30pm on both days and, if you’re lucky enough, you might even meet the brains behind the business himself, Nils El Accad, who loves having a chat to his customers. So be sure to stop in and say hello.
