XVA is a vegetarian cafe, boutique hotel and art gallery with artists in residence and exhibitions of contemporary Middle Eastern art. It looks quite discreet from the outside, but once you enter you find a very nice courtyard with great art displayed. The cafe menu includes eggplant burgers, cold veggie soups, tuna salad, homemade lemon sorbet, saffron and chai cheesecake. The specialty of the house is mint and lime tea. Such a pleasant place to lunch alfresco in peace and tranquility after walking round the Bastakiya/Al Fahidi area. They also host private events in this shady courtyard.
