Café Bateel is an exciting new concept in casual dining: Mediterranean fare, curated by Bateel.

The first Café Bateel opened in 2007 in the UAE. Since then, it has expanded into other countries and can be found in the most prestigious locations. In 2015, two new concepts were born: a combined café and bakery in the Arabian Ranches, Dubai and the first flagship store housing the boutique, bakery, and café all under one roof at JBR The Walk, Dubai.

The menu combines Mediterranean cuisine and a rich tradition of Arabian hospitality, resulting a tempting selection of delicious, wholesome food and beverages served in a warm and sophisticated atmosphere.

Customers can also take the taste of Café Bateel home. We have a wide variety of pre-packed gourmet specialties available for purchase in-store.

The Bateel story starts in Al Ghat, a town in Central Arabia, favoured by nature with sweet water, rich soil and a climate ideal for date production. Here is where Bateel’s premium dates were first nurtured and the idea of gourmet dates was born.

The evolution to gourmet food production happened over the years, first by combining dates with gourmet chocolate, then by fusing dates with other delicacies, and adding an extensive range of savoury fine food. This bold an pioneering achievement provided Bateel with a valuable launching pad to expand into complementary sectors in the gourmet food industry.

Over the years, Bateel has perfected its integrated production assets and network of luxurious boutiques, artisanal bakeries and premium cafés.
