In a metropolitan desert oasis lies a multicultural hub full of ultramodern architecture. Born in Dubai, our Roastery caters to everyone and is another piece of what makes this city a sought after destination.

The Sum of Us location

Tucked between the dunes and skyscrapers is The Sum Of Us Café, resting on the ground floor of Burj al Salam in the Trade Centre area on 6th street. Find it by following the smell of roasted coffee beans and fresh baked bread.
