In a country where coffee is an integral part of everyday life, Italians have strived for generations to perfect the art of coffee-making.  In Naples, one such family excelled beyond any other when three brothers began roasting coffee in their father’s bakery in the early 1960s.  By 1963, Francesco, Gerardo, and Elio Rubino opened up a local coffee shop named Café Do Brasil, forever changing the world of coffee.

Within months of Café Do Brasil’s opening, the Rubino brothers’ espresso gained nationwide renown, attracting coffee-drinkers from all over Italy.  As the Rubino brothers’ fame gradually increased, the brothers were inspired to bring the pleasure of Neapolitan coffee to bars, restaurants, and homes all over the world.

In the late 1960s, the Rubino brothers elected to take advantage of recently developed packaging techniques that enabled them to ship their esteemed coffee vast distances.  Utilizing the revolutionary vacuum-packed can, the Rubino brothers chose to spread the Neapolitan tradition of genuine coffee under their KIMBO trademark.  In just a few years, Café Do Brasil became one of the most well-known coffee roasting shops in Europe.

By 1994, Café Do Brasil was ranked second in the retail sector of the Italian market for packaged coffee, a position that the café still maintains 27 years later.

One such location where the KIMBO trademarked coffee has thrived is in Dubai, a booming tourist destination that is the most populous city in the United Arab Emirates.  In this restaurant and café, the Neapolitan tradition is upheld through its use of fresh ingredients without flavor enhancers or additives like monosodium glutamate. 



Located in the Dubai International Financial Centre, the café serves an assortment of soups, salads, antipasti, pastas, sandwiches, pizzas, desserts, juices, and KIMBO’s renowned Italian coffee.  Prepared with the highest quality ingredients and unmistakable Neapolitan flavors, KIMBO provides a variety of authentic and creative dishes, while also supplying numerous gluten free and vegetarian options on their menu. 

The café offers al fresco dining, as well as take-out services, catering, and gourmet slices to go.  Some of the chef’s recommended dishes include the Frutti de Mare pizza, the Quattro Formaggi pizza, and the Prosciutto e Funghi pizza. 

KIMBO, il Caffè di Napoli, promises a memorable experience for every visit, while providing a cozy and elegant environment that is suitable for any occasion.  The ambience of KIMBO Dubai is reminiscent of the Naples countryside, cultivating the experience of authentic Italian cuisine. 


The café is open Sunday to Thursday: 7:00 AM to 10:00 PM, and Friday & Saturday: 10:00 AM to 8:00 PM.  Visit today for a taste of Italy!
