- Beloved bakery and café offers full range of homemade pastries, signature breakfast dishes, locally-roasted coffee and much more
- This marks the fifth branch to open within one year as the brand continues to expand rapidly across the city
Dubai, UAE – : Risen Café & Artisanal Bakery has opened its fifth outlet at the Balqis Residence on the West Crescent of Palm Jumeirah. This fast-paced expansion is a testament to the popularity of the brand and the strength of its core values and offerings.
The homegrown brand, which has taken Dubai by storm since opening its first branch in Dubai Marina only a year ago, is set to become the café destination of choice for Palm residents, thanks to its stunning interiors, full-bodied coffee, beautiful pastries, delicious signature dishes and fresh-from-the-oven loaves.
With floor-to-ceiling windows, stripped-back wooden floors and an outdoor seating area with beautiful sea views, Risen is the ideal place to catch up with friends, dine with your little ones or enjoy as a workspace for the weekdays spent outside the office.
The new venue – which continues to build on the brand’s strong focus on sustainability and locally sourced ingredients – is a fabulous addition to this popular neighbourhood, giving Palm Jumeirah visitors, residents and their families a wonderful location to enjoy delicious food alongside stunning Dubai skyline views.
Ruben Martinez, General Manager at Risen Café & Artisanal Bakery said: “As a relatively new concept in Dubai, we couldn’t be happier with our newest ‘home’ at the Balqis Residence on Palm Jumeirah. Locals and residents have embraced our existing Risen branches and made each of them important parts of their communities. Opening this new branch on the Palm is a great way of sharing our delicious dishes, pastries and loaves with many more people.”
Whether diners fancy tucking into a light acai bowl at breakfast, treating themselves to an indulgent waffle-meets-croissant hybrid or signature pancake dish, opt for a gourmet sandwich or a flavour-packed salad at lunch, there’s something for every taste and time of day. Even the little ones are well taken care of with a dedicated list of breakfast treats.
Exploring the delectable offerings in the Pastry Boutique is a must. Highlights include Risen’s ever-popular Salted Caramel Filled Donut, Chocolate Crème Supreme, Carrot Cake and Black Forest Tart – and the opportunity to take home a freshly-baked, artisan-made baguette or loaf is not to be missed.
Meanwhile, Risen’s baristas take brewing seriously preparing coffee made with locally roasted regional and international beans with absolute attention to detail. Whether aficionados are seeking a flawless flat white, fruity filter, powerful pour-over brew or fancy trying one of Risen’s signature caffeinated drinks, coffee fans will find plenty to enjoy at the new location. The eclectic beverage menu also includes freshly blended juices and smoothies, innovative mocktails and a carefully curated range of teas and unique infusions.
Risen’s commitment to sustainability and using seasonal, locally sourced ingredients and natural, biodegradable materials remains as strong as ever at the latest destination. While the locations and sizes of the outlets differ – ranging from convenient grab-and-go options at The First Collection at Jumeirah Village Circle and Business Bay, to the full-dining experience that visitors will encounter at the new Palm Jumeirah location, Barsha Heights and Dubai Marina, the warm ambience, excellent service and high-quality food and drinks remain a constant.
