Mikel Coffee is a brand originally from Greece who opened it’s first doors in the UAE in 2016. One of the fastest growing chains in Greece and now in UAE, Mikel stands for the acronym for the phrase Maybe it’s knowledge entering life, the company’s motto.
The logo consists of the face of the founder which i feel gives a personal touch to the brand. Mikel serves a wide range of coffees, assorted beverages, juices and snacks. These are being made based on traditional home-based recipes which represent the perfect mixture of culture and taste. They also have a wide range of cakes and desserts to select from.
I visited them in their Bur Juman branch and was greeted warmly by the staff. They give you free toffees which are cute and make you feel welcome. The branch has an outdoor seating area which is great and perfect for the chilly weather in Dubai.
I opted to have the Cappucino with a Toffee and Caramel topping. The whipped cream on top was what i truly relished which blended well with the coffee. The carrot cake was soft and moist and the Rockslide Brownie had the perfect crunch to it. That caramel was to die for.
Even the cake slice that comes with the coffee was soft and delicious. There is something for everyone here.
From the way the place was crowded, this surely is becoming one popular brand. Mikel operates more than 100 stores and is growing every month with 100,000 cups of coffee being served daily and 300 tons of coffee annually.
For those who like their coffee strong, Mikel is now in various parts of UAE. You can’t buy happiness, but you can buy coffee 🙂 And that’s pretty close!
