So this amazing Deli is located in DIFC and Jebel Ali (I work in Jebel Ali so this is the one I am always at!) the food is so yummy, great choice, great service, really cool urban atmosphere and all round fab deli!

Thh food is always fresh, tasty, wholesome, flavourful, delicious and homemade. You will find the deli shops rustic, warm and homely; somewhere you know you can escape to when you get a moment to pop in and relax over some good food & freshly made brew.

A little bit about them:

1762 was established by a bunch of foodies in Dubai who wanted to cater to fellow food lovers in the UAE.

It all began in 2005 when they started Appettie with a team of just two people. They quickly grew to a team of over one hundred; one of the best catering companies in the UAE, and before they knew it, they were talking about all the things they would love to do, “if only we had our very own deli shop and from there we created ‘1762’, our gourmet deli co.” And now it is here offering some of the best catering in Dubai.

Why 1762? Well, quite simply, it’s all to do with the sandwich…

As the story goes, in 1762 during one of his marathon card games, John Montague, the Fourth Earl of Sandwich, called for rare roast beef sandwiched between two slices of bread. Whether this was to avoid getting up for meal, prevent his cards from getting greasy or just a crafty way to hide an ace or two, no one knows for sure. What we do know is, this handy snack went down so well, his peers were soon ordering the same as Sandwich. “1762” the year of the sandwich!

The menu

At 1762 you will find everything from hearty soups, gourmet sandwiches, pies and quiches, to delicious salad concoctions, cakes and slices from our gluten free lemon polenta cake, Tunisian orange cake, or chocolate torte to a naughty but nice slice of millionaire’s shortbread or twix brownie, freshly baked scones with jam & cream, to homemade iced teas, selected fine leaf teas and our own specially blended coffee.

You’ll be able to select your meal from the deli counter or if you’re in a real hurry, we also have a ‘grab and go’ fridge in our DIFC shop, with a small pre-packaged selection of items from the deli counter or you can call down and order and we’ll deliver to you within the local location area.


 DIFC deli offers a take out or local delivery service within DIFC and Currency House and seats around 50 people inside and 60 people outside. At the Galleries, Downtown Jebel Ali, we have the same take out or local delivery service and a smaller seating area, with 30 inside and 40 outside.

Here for all the occasions you might want to try us, for breakfast, or just a cool drink, for a full hearty lunch, to a light lunch snack, to tea & cake in the afternoons, and for all different kinds of catering.
