Circle Café, the simple, fresh and delicious casual dining restaurant owned by the Radius Group, is bringing its extensive menu of homemade dishes to new locations in the UAE and beyond in 2015 as part of an ambitious expansion plan.
Founded in 2003, Circle Café was initially set up as purveyor of fine NYC-style bagels by two moms, Mira Lozi Al Naimi and Rama Mamlouk. Since, the menu has evolved to offer breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner options that appeal to all palettes. Vegetarians and meat lovers alike are catered for.
Bay Square in Dubai’s Business Bay and Mangrove Village in Abu Dhabi have already seen Circle Cafés start welcoming guests, and new outlets will open in The Dubai Mall and Al Ain Mall later in the year. The total tally of Circle Cafés in the UAE currently stands at 8, and will rise to 10 when The Dubai Mall and Al Ain Mall outlets come online.
The Radius Group is focusing on expanding Circle Café’s stylish yet relaxed experience to new locations across the region in light of popular demand. The home-grown concept has proved itself in local markets, and a highly favourable customer response is driving new outlets.
“Circle Café’s unique advantage is that it is a home-grown brand that has proved its bona fides in a competitive market. Customers love the Circle Café experience because it combines scrumptious food with an outstanding customer experience. We have now entered a growth phase, and are looking forward to our Business Bay and Mangrove Mall outlets welcoming guests. The Dubai Mall and Al Ain Mall will follow shortly, after, and we’ll keep the momentum going as we expand to new localities,” said Rama Mamlouk and Mira Lozi Al Naimi, founders of Circle Café.
“As a next step, we’re eyeing region wide expansion. Circle Café’s casual dining environment has gained a lot of traction, and menu is versatile and full of delicious dishes with universal appeal. After seeing how it helped the café culture in Dubai evolve, we’re confident that Circle Café will do very well regionally, and are working on making that happen,” they added.
The Circle Café menu offers extensive breakfast options, a wide salad selection, gourmet sandwiches, sumptuous main dishes and homemade cakes that melt in the mouth. Quality, service and atmosphere have helped Circle Cafe stand out from the crowd while appealing to a range of tastes and budgets.
