Forever Rose is a 2D cafe, Dubai’s very first one that boasts a very striking and insta-worthy decoration and delicious treats and desserts.

Offering a unique experience, this cafe seems to have been taken out of a fairytale book, with its walls, lamps, furniture, and even art in black and white lines that mimic drawings.

Having become incredibly popular all over the world, the theme of 2D cafes is also a hit in Dubai, and Forever Rose Cafe is nothing short of extraordinary.

You might have first heard of Forever Rose cafe while watching Dubai Bling on Netflix (the owner is one of the Dubai personalities featured on the show). Or maybe you’ve found it on Instagram – that’s how I first heard of it!

▶️ You can also take the bus to get there. The RTA Bus 9 in the direction of Al Ghubaiba leaves you in Al Wasl and Street 35, right by the shopping center.

What To Expect at the First 2D Cafe in Dubai

Forever Rose Cafe recreates its namesake floral boutique in London, with the twist of having been turned into a charming cafe that offers an exclusive experience both in aesthetics and culinary delights.

This is actually their second location in the UAE – another Forever Rose cafe first opened in Abu Dhabi.

The 2D concept is indeed based on storybooks, turning 3-dimensional objects into flat ones in appearance, and using a monochrome palette so that customers (you!), food, and beverages stand out with their colors. This highlights the idea of being inside a fairytale! 

Every corner of the cafe offers perfect photo opportunities, and there’s an abundance of black-and-white iconic portraits, including some of the Mona Lisa, Lady Di, Queen Elizabeth II, and Dubai’s Crown Prince. 

But not all is about the beautiful decoration here! What’s on Forever Rose Cafe’s menu, then?

Following the storybook theme, the menu is divided into the Morning Story, which features the breakfast items, the Main Story for lunch and dinner, and the Sweet Ending for the decadent, scrumptious desserts the cafe is more famous for. 

The first menu includes classics like avocado toast, acai bowls, and waffles, as well as some traditional dishes such as Shakchouka and Um Ali French Toast.

Salads, meat dishes, seafood, and burgers are the main items on the lunch and dinner menu, while the selection of desserts includes cakes, brownie puddings, and Crème Brûlée

It’s a great place to come for a coffee or a meal, especially if you’re visiting Dubai in the summer and need some solace from the heat!

There is a large coffee menu, in which the cafe’s signature beverages stand out (and are the most instagrammable!) Fancy a Rose, Lavender, or Orchid Latte? A marocchino caldo or a cup of tea with rose? 

Juices, alcoholic drinks, and bites to share are also available, so you can visit this fabulous Dubai 2D cafe regardless of what type of food you’re craving for. 

Enjoyed your meal? Don’t leave Forever Rose Cafe before browsing their shop to find unique souvenirs and shop their boutique collections! From the store’s staple Bella Rose to items from their Capsule Collection and Bella Mini, you can take home a reminder of your fairytale experience.

Looking to visit and take pictures like the ones above? Come here right at opening time – even better if you visit during the low season (summer).
