At My Healthy DXB we love spreading the word when we find a great place in Dubai where you can get healthy food. Read on to get the latest insights.
Excellent coffee and delicious, healthy snacks! That was what attracted us to Spill the Bean’s coffee shop at the Beach Canteen during this year’s Dubai Food Festival!
What they offered was truly delicious! A good blend of Raw coffee, delicious cakes and sweets, all made from natural ingredients. Even though it was delicious and sweet, it had no processed sugar, no chemicals, no powders or anything. Just very nice quality stuff made from real chocolate, dates, whole grain flour and real fruits. Yummy!
It made me come back for more, this time I went to visit their café in Sunset Mall. Not a destination on my normal coffee shop route, but I can tell you it was definitely worth the detour!
Spill the Bean café is a cool place. An independent coffee shop founded by Ola Sinna and her husband. A place with good coffee, delicious, healthy, comfort food, and a cosy atmosphere!
The story of Spill the Bean coffee shop is the story about a couple that loves coffee shops. Living in Dubai, they often used to work out of coffee shops around town, but never managed to find a place that exactly fulfilled all their wishes. After years of conceptualizing their favorite place, they got the courage to make their passion and dream come true. They build Spill the Bean coffee shop!
The couple runs the coffee shop on two rules
1) Only things the couple love get to be part of the coffee shop and
2) Every part of the coffee shop is a part of them.
And this works! Spill the Bean has a menu with real, genuine food. No short cuts, just real food made from good ingredients.
Inspiration for the menu comes from the food that Ola’s mom made when she was a child. Comfort food made with good fresh natural ingredients. Ola reveals: ‘My father always had a soft spot for unhealthy food. My Mom used to make something similar to him, but she transformed it from junk into healthy food, changing the ingredients.’ Ola now does the same with her Mom’s food. She is adding goodness to the dishes before allowing it on the menu.
An example is the pancakes on the menu. Made with 70% whole-wheat flour and no sugar. As a sweetener, Ola uses date and cinnamon instead. Also, the omelet on the menu is her Mom’s old recipe where the sour cream is replaced by labneh. Fat replaced with a good natural product.
All in all Spill the Bean is one of those places that makes you feel good. It’s a genuine place that makes you feel welcome and want to come back for more. The menu makes it easy for you to make the healthy choice with delicious food made out of fresh, healthy ingredients. How can that not be good for you?
