Cheval Collection has signed a lease agreement with Black Coffee by Café Younes to operate the restaurant space at Cheval Maison – The Palm Dubai.

Open to both guests and non-residents, the café will offer a full-service including breakfast, lunch and dinner. Hotel guests will be able to book a bed and breakfast rate with breakfast at the café included, as well as having the option of delivery to their apartment or to the pool deck on the 12th floor. The café will also offer a home delivery service to addresses elsewhere in Dubai.

The Black Coffee by Café Younes brand was created in 2018 by Café Younes, the oldest and the largest home-grown specialty coffee roaster in Lebanon, which dates from 1935. The brand has 12 outlets in Lebanon, three in Egypt and two in Dubai, in addition to Cheval Maison – The Palm Dubai.

The agreement will see Black Coffee by Café Younes take an initial three-year license on the space, with the intention of extending it into the long term

“At Cheval Collection we are proud of our decades of hospitality experience in the sector and the heritage of Black Coffee by Café Younes makes it the perfect fit for our newest property,” says Mohammed S Alawadhi, Managing Director of Cheval Collection. “The group’s history gives us the confidence that it can create the welcoming atmosphere our guests expect and ensure that our first time of offering room service is a great success.”
