Primi- City Walk

In November 2023, we brought one of our favorite restaurants, Primi, to Dubai. It is located in C2 City Walk and offers everything you can imagine under the term Italian cuisine. Primi is an oasis of peace full of rich flavors with a menu based on quality ingredients. You can enjoy a wide range of options here, from traditional freshly prepared Italian pasta and pizza to seafood and delicious salads. Our homemade lemonades, coffee, and original drinks are also available.

MINT – City Walk

The beloved MINT concept is spreading its wings. In March 2023, a new location was introduced in the United Arab Emirates. MINT City Walk offers everything that customers have already loved about it in 2021 – a pleasant environment, delicious meals all day long, artisanal lemonades based on our recipes, and coffee roasted by us.


A newcomer to the culinary scene of the capital city, COMO CAFE, draws inspiration from the Southern sensibility for a bohemian “sweet” life. Filled with joy, a love for food, and a variety of colorful scents that customers will discover not only on their plates. It combines the lively atmosphere of an all-day bistro with meticulously refined flavors of Italian cuisine down to the smallest detail.


MINT Pradiareň

In the most significant industrial monument and simultaneously a national cultural heritage site, Pradiareň 1900, we launched the flagship of the MINT concept in April 2022. The industrial space, characterized by high ceilings, features an open kitchen at its core. For those interested, one can observe the creation of their food and drinks right under the skillful hands of our team. Of course, a corner shop with our freshly baked goods, sandwiches, croissants, and delightful desserts is a traditional feature, all designed to pair perfectly with coffee from our own roastery.

In one of the world’s largest shopping centers, Dubai Mall, both locals and tourists can enjoy MINT dishes, unique beverages, and coffee from our own roastery.



When we opened our first Mint in june 2021, it became a member of our broad family of culinary concepts. At Mint in Ružinov you will find a bakery, bistro and coffee house, all under one roof. Mint brings together all the things we love – traditional bakery crafts, freshly roasted coffee, and Italian cuisine. In the near future we are planning on opening more of Mints in several locations of Bratislava. That would mean we can bring to more locals freshly baked pastry, good coffee, crafted lemonades and most importantly tasty food.
