Whether you’re catching up with friends, trying to nail that deadline or just having some time to yourself, Dubai’s best coffee shops are there to help. And whilst Dubai is practically over-run by Starbucks, there are so many independent shops that are way better…just have a look.
Rock Up With Your Laptop
There’s a section at the back that’s surrounded by glass and inside are reading chairs each with their own table and power outlets making interference from the outside world absolutely minimal.
Sunday to Wednesday 10:00 – 22:00 (midnight on weekends)
Tucked away with all the galleries, A4Space is ideal for group work or if you like having that office vibe to keep you motivated. I love the nooks that they have above the book shelves (all with power outlets). Super cozy and away from all distractions.
Saturday to Thursday 10:00 – 19:00
Huge windows make The Pavilion super bright and airy. They have plenty of power outlets and a menu to keep you going from breakfast to midnight snacks.
Daily 08:00 – 01:00
Post Work Out Feast
For anyone who hasn’t been to Tom and Serge, I ask you why? I love heading there after one of my excercise classes – I usually order the ‘bowl of super salad’ or the sea bass.
Weekdays 08:00 – 16:00 and weekends until 18:00
Friends Avenue has an awesome menu, especially when you have post-workout munchies. I mostly go here for the salads but I do love the salmon and the lamb kofta. I also recommend their shakes if you’re feeling a bit naughty. I’m still trying to decide if I prefer the banana and strawberry one or the salted peanut butter shake.
Daily 08:00 – 22:00
Catching Up With Friends
Great locations, great coffee, delicious treats. Ideal for afternoons catching up with friends.
Town Centre Jumeirah: Daily 07:00 – 23:00
Souk Al Bahar: Daily 08:00 – 23:00
Marina Promenade: Daily 08:00 – 23:00
Being inside the garden centre near FGB, means that this is a bit of a strange location but it’s totally worth the visit. Coffee and cake Nirvana!
Daily 08:00 – 08:00
Again, another strange one because it’s part coffee shop, part motorcycle shop so you get a mixture of people in here. However, its relaxed environment makes it an ideal place for chit-chat or relaxing with a book. Check out the website for their amazing “about us” story.
Daily 08:00 – 20:00 (17:00 on Friday)
