Comptoir 102 is a healthy eating haven for wellness focused people, who appreciate good food and excellent ingredients. The café is all about sustainability and nutrition, with a focus on using age-old techniques of fermentation, steaming, and dehydrating to optimise the dishes. It’s no wonder they won the What’s On Award for the best healthy café in Dubai.
Comptoir 102 sources their ingredients from local organic farms to ensure the highest standard of quality, and to reflect the seasonality of the produce. The sugar-free and dairy-free menu along with raw, vegan, and gluten-free options doesn’t compromise on flavour in the slightest. Breakfast is a continental feast featuring the likes of buckwheat pancakes with fresh berries, creme budwig, and vegan nut cheese plates. The main menu offers a fantastic range of healthy meals, with creative components and flavour combinations. There’s a seaweed pesto guacamole, organic labneh panini, and a protein power bowl, for a whole host of multicultural flavour influences, while still delivering on nutritional value.
The philosophy of the café is to offer a more conscious and healthy lifestyle to its patrons, that is mindful of the environments and what we put in our bodies. It is a refreshing take on the wellness trend, helmed by three French women, whose aim is to serve better tasting food, packed with nutrients from natural ingredients.
The café also offers an extensive list of floral teas and a colourful variety of nut milk based lattes. The smoothies and juices are a real crowd-pleaser too, with a litany of wonderful superfood ingredients and delicious fruits and vegetables based drinks – each one promising boosts of energy.
