There are many more concepts in the pipeline… Bull & Roo is setting out to create new spots where people can gather, sip on their favourite cup of coffee or freshly pressed juice, laugh, tuck into a wholesome and beautifully plated dish, and – want – to come back for more. We will continue to create genuine relationships with our guests and understand what they care about, what they love to eat and drink, and what they want from us in the future, so please drop by for a coffee sometime (or email us here).
We’d love to catch up.

Tom & Serg gets voted Favourite Café in the What’s On Awards.
Tom & Serg opens. This gritty-chic Melbournian-inspired café was our first food concept. Tucked away in a corner Al Quoz, it was born from a desire to dish up honest, wholesome fare and great coffee (at the right temperature) to Dubai residents from all walks of life, bringing casual and gourmet to the same table.
Bull & Roo – a socially responsible, home-grown hospitality and investments company that leads-the-way with creative F&B concepts with beautiful food and drink – was founded in Dubai in 2013. The company was born from a love of wholesome fare and fresh produce, the longing to come up with innovative and original food concepts, and the yearning to create a society in which JOY is an added extra to our lives in the UAE.
What gets us up in the morning? Aside from a good cup of coffee served at just the right temperature, we’re all about creating moreish, photo-worthy fare that keeps our guests coming back for more, crafting unique food concepts inspired by the architectural spaces in which they’re housed. The result? Hip urban cafes, bars with a twist of nostalgia, and once-off restaurants with make-you-smile service that you won’t find anywhere else.
