We are a Ukrainian company. We stand with our colleagues, friends, family, and with all people of Ukraine. Our message
Headquartered in the thriving metropolis of Dubai, Shakespeare and Co. is proud to have been conceived and developed in the UAE in 2001. Our goal is simple: to serve great quality food and provide friendly and efficient service in a warm atmosphere reminiscent of home. We have grown into 35 company-owned and operated outlets in the United Arab Emirates with 12 franchised outlets in Lebanon, Jordan, Qatar, Oman, Bahrain, Iraq and the United States. We continue to build on that success through the passion and dedication of our team and the loyalty of our customers who inspire us to improve and evolve. The café restaurant represents the core of our business. While every restaurant is distinctly “Shakespearean”, each restaurant is unique in terms of colours, décor and layout that differentiate us from “cookie cutter” concepts. We have our very own in-house design team and every piece of furniture and every fixture is handcrafted in our workshops. This emphasis on design has distinguished Shakespeare and Co. from its competitors. In 2007, Shakespeare and Co. added pâtisserie to its repertoire and it has proven to complement the business flawlessly. Our impressive selection of pastries, viennoiserie, petit fours, macaroons and marshmallows are all produced in our state-of-the art pastry kitchen and delivered fresh to each outlet every morning. The success of our café restaurant and pâtisserie divisions led to creation of our catering division in 2010. Inspired by our discerning customers who wished to bring a touch of Shakespearean flair to their events, we specialise in small to mid-sized events, delivering the same quality and diversity of dishes featured in our restaurant menu. Shakespeare and Co. ventured into handmade gourmet chocolates in 2011. Various flavours of dark, milk and white chocolate are handmade and hand wrapped in our pastry kitchen. Our pastry chef creates little pieces of heaven using only the finest ingredients with no additives or preservatives.
