In dire need of a caffeine fix and decent WiFi, (website launch looming!) I found myself wandering in to MAKE Business Hub.
Located just a one minute walk from the JBR One Tram stop and a two minute walk from my current abode, MAKE was an obvious choice.
A self proclaimed co-working space and urban cafe for us Dubai-ites always on the go, MAKE boasts many work stations, a quiet environment that promotes productivity amongst it’s customers and a surprisingly speedy WiFi connection! I have to say, it did not disappoint on any of these fronts.
Coffee selection wise, it has all the key essentials to help you unleash your creative genius.
A fan of a simple, black Americano myself, I’m a firm believer that if you can’t master the basics- you shouldn’t bother with the specialities. I have to say, when it comes to the basics-MAKE have nailed it.
If you’re a tea drinker, I recommend MAKES Special Ginger Tea. Quite frankly it’s more of a fire starter than a tea. It has just the right amount of fresh ginger kick to it and will be sure to warm and tickle the back of your tastebuds. It also makes for one helluva Instagram pic:
On my most recent visit, I treated myself to Eggs Benedict. Not one for turkey bacon, I asked for it to be switched with smoked salmon from one of the other dishes. Usually when I make this request in Dubai, I am met with a blank stare and statement of “ we do not deviate from the menu Miss”. On this occasion however, the waiter said he would ask. Needless to say, 10 minutes later my Eggs Benedict arrived, minus turkey bacon and plus a substantial amount of deliciously smoked salmon.
If you’re not partial to eggs, MAKE also boast an extensive array of Pasta’s, Sambo’s and Mains.
Over all, I had a very pleasant and productive experience at MAKE. If you’re looking for a place to catch up with friends and have a gossip MAKE is not the place for you.
If, on the other hand, you’re looking for somewhere to put your head down and get some work done and dusted, MAKE is right up your alley. The extremely pleasant staff, extensive selection of food and drink and it’s tranquil atmosphere will ensure you do a job well done.
All the motivational quotes on the walls help too!
