Waitrose introduces its first UAE café

The new Waite and Rose cafe

Within the newly refurbished lifestyle destination of The Meadows Village lies the 13th Waitrose store in the UAE. Or 14,124 sq ft of absolute convenience. Promising family-friendly and a satisfying shopping experience, the country’s first Waite & Rose café is a welcome addition.

The counter-service concept is an invite for shoppers to have a cuppa and relax in the cosy seating provided. The deli is loaded with a variety of food ranging from baked bread to healthy salads and delicious rotisseries chicken all made fresh every day. Vintage photographs of Waitrose’s founders Wallace Waite and Arthur Rose complement the interiors of the café. In addition to coffees, teas, and fresh food, a custom menu is a welcome addition managed by the onsite bakery and deli.

The newly opened Waitrose store in The Meadows Village

Waitrose remains true to its ethos of sourcing locally and providing organic products.  So here also, shoppers can gather handpicked fruit and vegetable produce, organic fish, and free-range eggs.

British products are as vital and available as ever. This includes grass-fed Scottish Angus Beef (a great option for the classic Beef Wellington). Plus, Cornwall’s very own Cheddar (it takes 1,000 days to mature in order to acquire its ultimate taste).

Waitrose consumers have more to choose from the store’s own brands, like the No.1 premium range. Its own vegan section comprises all the must-haves in a vegan diet while offering quick and ready meals and products.

Waitrose & Partners exports to more than 50 nations around the globe. They also have an online grocery channel, Waitrose.com. Specialist online service includes waitroseflorist.com for flowers and plant deliveries.

Timings: 7 am – 11 pm daily (shop and café)
