"The Archive’s mission is to provide a platform to promote a diverse and active cultural community, nurture a new generation into literature and education while at the same time, create a space of exploration and entertainment."
The Archive is one of those unique spaces in Dubai that focuses more on the holistic side of living. Surrounded by books focused on the Arab arts and literature, it provides a non-commercial space for people to enrich their mind, body and souls. With a warm and inviting atmosphere and surrounded by greenery, no wonder we spent half the day there, we found no reason to leave!
All of the dishes were served in a hearty portion size, and were aesthetically pleasing. They used the freshest of ingredients and seasoned everything well to the point where each plate was wiped clean. My eggs pictured below were covered in a rich hollandaise sauce along with the crunchy asparagus and sauteed spinach, the citrus undertones and creaminess of the yolk and sauce all melded beautifully together.
To accompany any good breakfast item, you always need a string cup a joe, which they have also done creatively at The Archive. Serving the steamed milk alongside a carafe of espresso, you get the perfect pour every time. Not only is attention paid to the fine details, but because of the unique presentation and excellent quality of the coffee, it's what makes a simple latte so memorable.
