The region's love of plant-based food is showing no signs of slowing down, so we give thanks to Comptoir 102 - Dubai's very own chic and Parisian healthy café.

We headed down to the Instagrammable spot - located in the heart of old Jumeira - to put the indepedent venue's claim that it is one of the best concept stores in the city to the test. The space has been conceived as a home - featuring an outdoor lounge, garden and terrace area - and is totally picture perfect. Think soft pink furnishings, fairy lights and potted plants.

The philosophy behind the café is to offer a more conscious and healthy lifestyle by bringing sustainable and nutritious food to DXB locals. I kicked off proceedings with a toasted organic bagel with blanched kale, cucumber and homemade vegan cream cheese, and I ordered this with a side of vegan nut cheeses, obviously. This plate came complete with fig paste, almond nuts and homemade bread. Uh-mazing.

The menu also boasts mixed berry smoothies, fresh juices and organic coffee, and once your tastebuds have been satisfied, you can mooch a couple of metres to Comtpoir's fashion, homeware, jewellery and beauty store (disclaimer: prepare to part with your dirhams).
