Our Story
La Pause Gourmande Café

“To accomplish great things, we must not only act, but also dream; not only plan, but also believe.”
Anatole France

"When I was a kid I loved to play at tea parties with my dolls. Secretly and over time I have always brooded the dream of opening my own coffee shop... I imagined an atmosphere of calm and pleasure, between serenity and indulgence. So, with great perseverance, it is done now and my dream became reality. And I am glad now to be able to share this dream with you, in Abu Dhabi."
— Houda C., founder and owner.

Houda’s move to Abu Dhabi in 2011 provided her with an opportunity to further develop her creative talents, she felt there was a real need in the market for Western trends, young designers and a more innovative retail model. Curator, director and founder of Paris Avenue Concept Store Abu Dhabi, Houda wanted to offer an entirely new shopping experience.
She is also at the origin of the food concept of La Pause Gourmande, which started a trend throughout the city in 2017. 

The Concept Store has become a reference and a hidden treasure for discerning shoppers, which she hopes it reflects in La Pause Gourmande.
