Own Café is a family owned and operated restaurant located in the Gold Tower in JLT. It opened in 2012 with the vision to serve delicious and healthy home-cooked Middle Eastern and International food, while providing an exciting and welcoming ambiance, that encourages you to relax and enjoy the moment with good people and good food!

Own Café regularly provides entertainment along with their food. The weekly karaoke nights are a firm favorite with JLT residents, but there are also frequent live performances by guest artists.

The cafe features a separate indoors shisha area and offers an excellent selection of different shishas and tobacco. There's also a large open air dining terrace, again with a separate shisha area.

Whether you pop in for the cafe's daily business lunch, for a dinner with the family, or just for a quick coffee, shisha, or tea, you're always warmly welcomed at Own Café.

Own Café also offers catering and can make your next family event, office party, or business gathering, a mouthwatering success!

You'll find plenty of parking in Cluster I and the cafe, which overlooks the nearby lake, is also in walking distance to Jumeirah Lakes Towers metro or tram station.
