Essentials Café by GC is a Drive-by / Grab&Go Café located in Al Karama Dubai that serves comfort food & OG UAE Snacks.

We aim to sprinkle UAE culture on our food & drinks. Most expats spend many years in UAE and don’t know much about the culture here, we hope to bridge that gap.

We believe Karak Chai is an Essential of Life and so, Essentials Café serves up the best Karak. Honk & get some!

Our feed & Menu is inspired by Nostalgic 90s & 2000s vibes and an Emarati x Expat cultural sprinkle on OG UAE snacks
