GOSSIP the brand was created out of a need to fill a gap for the hip and stylish retail F&B brand with modern Emirati roots; a brand that not only satisfies clients’ taste buds, but also creates a visually stimulating dining experience with an emphasis on art and fashion.

Hence, GOSSIP Cafe and Desserts was born - a one-of-a kind culinary boutique that fuses traditional Emirati flavors into contemporary American cuisine to create gourmet food and unprecedented desserts.

GOSSIP Cafe & Desserts’ primary location opened in 2013 at Matajer Al Juraina Mall next to Sharjah University City. the location at The Galleria, in Abu Dhabi, opened next, in 2014. Gossip Cafe & Desserts newest location opened in 2015, in Box Park, Dubai.

In 2015, GOSSIP expanded its offerings into a full service F&B and Event Consultancy that offers boutique eateries, designer gifting, couture catering, and bespoke event styling.

Gossip Cafe & Desserts plans to expand the F&B services into various parts of the UAE and other regions.

The size of a typical GOSSIP CAFE & DESSERTS outlet is between 2500 sq. feet and 4000 sq. feet. GOSSIP CAFE & DESSERTS serves multicultural middle to high-end income customers with a flow of 300 to 400 customers per day per outlet.
