Shakespeare and Co. is a homegrown Café Restaurant concept founded in Dubai by Dr. Edward Saad in 2001.

In the two decades since, Shakespeare and Co. has become the pre-eminent fast casual concept, and a market leader that has redefined and influenced the F&B space.

Operating 32 stores across the UAE and 8 franchised stores in the GCC serving over 5 million customers a year, Shakespeare and Co.’s acclaimed culinary offerings encompass classic and contemporary fare, inspired by the world’s most beloved cuisines.

The restaurant’s celebrated interiors, featuring an inimitable aesthetic conceived and brought to life by Shakespeare and Co.’s very own Design House, are an exquisite union of elegance and cosiness, evoking the charm and sophistication of bygone eras.

Complementing the core café restaurant operation are Shakespeare and Co.’s renowned Patisserie and Chocolates, crafted in-house using the finest, exotic ingredients utilizing artisanal techniques. Visitors to Shakespeare and Co. restaurants can expect to be treated to an unparalleled range of classic French cakes, petit fours, ice-creams and sorbets, and gourmet chocolate delicacies that redefine indulgence.

We take immense pride in creating memorable experiences, and being an integral part of the fabric of the communities we operate in.
