Looking for the Best breakfasts in Dubai? Their is so much choice in Dubai I guess thats because, lets be honest who doesn’t love a great hearty breakfast on the weekend to get day off to a great start? I know I do!! Well, it is the most important meal, after all
Here is my 101 on my personal best breakfasts in Dubai…
Sun & Dubai
A cute spot that over looks the Plam marina, inside and outside dinning serving Mediterranean food. The perfect place to head for a Firday and Saturday morning cure! The deal: Early risers will get mimosas and pints for AED 30 or a bottle of house sparkling for AED 150 to accompany their otherwise healthy breakfast!
Daily 8am-11.30am. The Palm Jumeirah (04 375 9333)

Healthy or hearty, West 14 are serving breakfast every weekend! And this type of year is the perfect time to sit outside and enjoy the cool views of the maria that they have on offer.
Oceana Beach Club, Palm Jumeirah (044477601 )

The restaurant is right down on the beach close to the Burj Al Arab Hotel so plenty of room for kids to run around. They serve a very wide choice of dishes fish dishes. Everything we tried was really tasty and it was excellent value for money. We were celebrating a birthday so the resident singers dropped by our table for a round of “Happy Birthday” which was really nice and they dropped of a small and perfectly formed birthday cake which we took home with us as we were so full. I would thoroughly recommend this to anyone
Serving from 07:30 to 11:30, (04 432 3232) Beachfront, Jumeirah Beach Hotel
This café and restaurant is buzzing during breakfast. At the weekend, you could find yourself waiting for a table for up to 45 minutes, which is testament to its popularity. As suggested in the name, the focus is on eggs, with everything from lobster and eggs on a muffin to a traditional American-style dish of steak and eggs. For those with a hearty appetite, go for the California Dreamin’ – two perfectly scrambled eggs mixed with diced, sautéed red onions and green peppers on an English muffin, topped with tomato concassé and hollandaise sauce, goat’s cheese and Lyonnaise-style potatoes. The dish is well-presented and the flavours complement each other perfectly.
Daily 7am-midnight. The Beach, JBR, Dubai Marina (04 4307 252).
Reform Social & Grill
This popular gastropub commands a loyal following from nearby residents. The breakfast menu features a varied, but not wildly extensive, list of classics from the full English to granola, eggs Florentine and English muffins with preserves. There’s even a double ‘belly buster’ full English, if you think you’re hard enough. But a simple order of scrambled eggs on (butterless) sourdough, sprinkled with fresh chives, is a satisfying and not-too-heavy way to start the day.

Full of diners in gym gear refuelling post-workout (everything is sugar and dairy-free), this healthy café has a casual feel, and sofas in the courtyard make for lazy lounging. The huge juice and smoothie list includes adventurous options (black lemonade made with activated charcoal) alongside standard combinations. Food is on the pricey side, but you get what you pay for: chia pudding that doesn’t skimp on chia seeds and whole vanilla pods in the sweet and creamy honey oatmeal pudding. The buckwheat pancakes with scrambled eggs and avocado are heartier, but still feel light and wholesome, leaving you comfortably full rather than bloated.
Daily 8.30am-noon. 102 Jumeirah Beach Road, www.comptoir102.com (04 385 4555).
This industrial-looking, Melbourne-inspired café in Al Quoz is an excellent spot for breakfast. The diminutive list of breakfast dishes features traditional dishes given a shake-up such as the eggs Benedict. You’ll get one fluffy side of muffin, topped with poached eggs that burst with bright orange goo as you cut into them, slices of smoked salmon, a fresh crunch of superfood du jour kale, and buttery hollandaise, with a bright, acidic yuzu in there. Those feeling fragile should try the hefty, hearty beast that is the beef breakfast burrito, served all day.
Sun-Thu 8am-11.50am, Fri and Sat 8am-4.30pm. Al-Joud Centre, Al Quoz, near ACE Hardware, Sheikh Zayed Road (04 338 8934).

The Pavilion Downtown Dubai
A rather cool urban cafe – be it as a place to set up the laptop and churn through masses of work over copious amounts of (very good) coffee. An indoor vertical garden wall offers a welcome splash of green when outdoors is so hot and out of bounds and the menu is jam packed with healthy food disguised as yummy options.

The Sum Of Us
Mmmm, is there anything better than a warm buttered slice of homemade sourdough bread? The Sum Of Us has a comfort menu inspired by all those good old family favourites, sure to please even the pickiest of eaters. Their menu’s pretty international as well with pastries, breakfast ramen, patatas bravas and a delicious smashed avocado on toast with veal ham and poached eggs. Stick around for lunch and dinner as well, the menu’s a winner.

The Farm is something of a little oasis surrounded by greenery and a botanical garden, just a few minutes drive out of Dubai (at Al Barari, the place we dream of living on a daily basis). The menu includes ethically sourced ingredients that change with the seasons and include several gluten-free and vegan options that are healthy but yummy. This place gets mega busy so book before you visit.

On a slightly related comment check out the below chart highlighting the increasing popularity of going out for breakfast (in the UK) and the rice in egg consumption contributed to the resurgence of the egg. Who’s favorite isn’t Eggs Benedict?
