Premium, specialty gourmet food retailer, jones the grocer, has opened its doors for the first time in the Middle East. Hailing from Australia, the newly opened store in Al Mamoura, Abu Dhabi is the first of its kind in the Middle East. Featuring a trademark walk-in cheese room, charcuterie, deli and cafe, jones the grocer offers an innovative experience for the discerning food-lover.

The store’s piece de résistance is a trademark walk-in cheese room, purposely designed to exhibit an unmatched selection of artisan cheeses. The temperature and humidity-controlled room allows each cheese to be nurtured and ripen at the ideal temperature for maximum quality and flavour.


The café will feature a luscious range of local artisan foods, breads, pastries and cakes baked in the in-house bakery daily, coffees and ready-made meals. 


jones the grocer has searched the globe to source the finest coffee beans for their branded coffee products. Perfectly roasted to bring out the subtle characteristics in each bean, an in-house barista will be able to take customers through the range of coffee beans on offer.


The jones the grocer food experience will not just be limited to in store with the brand offering special jones the grocer hampers, with everything from the standard ‘gourmet’ hamper, the ‘cheese-in-a-box’ hamper, to decadent Christmas and special occasion hampers. The hampers will be available for delivery both locally and throughout the UAE.
