Foodie Wednesdays: Cafe Bateel, Dubai Marina

May 7, 2014
Cafe Bateel, Dubai Marina Walk
We tried out Cafe Bateel in Marina Walk a few weeks ago and I must say that I was disappointed by the experience. I had high hopes for this cafe as I think it’s one of the most popular cafes in this area and there should be a valid reason why. It was packed when we got there thankfully though, we immediately found an empty outdoor table but as it turned out, that will be the best thing which will ever happen

Dubai: Pantry Cafe at Al Wasl Square

March 5, 2014
Pantry Cafe, Al Wasl Square, Dubai
As many of you know, Dubai is a fast-paced city in all aspects. Infrastructures are being built overnight as well as all sorts of establishments – be it a restaurant, club, bar, hotel, etc. etc. It’s really hard to keep up with everything in this city, so when I received an invitation to try out Pantry Cafe – I had to do my research about it as I have not a single clue as to where it is. Located i

Dubai: Sophie’s Cafe in Palm Jumeirah

February 12, 2014
Sophie's Cafe, Palm Jumeirah, Dubai
I was invited to try out Sophie’s café in Palm Jumeirah last month. I have been hearing a lot about it for the past few months now but have never really gotten a chance to visit it. I kind of hate myself these days as my “adventurous” side is being overpowered by my laziness to explore new restaurants and things to do around the city. I must shamefully admit that I didn’t want to venture out of my comf

Dubai: Circle Cafe in Dubai Media City

June 13, 2013
Breakfast, breakfast and more breakfast! This is my favorite meal of the day and I am always up for discovering new breakfast nooks around town. The recent discovery was Circle Cafe in Dubai Media City. We went on a Friday which is a quiet and really peaceful day to visit this area since it’s really busy during the weekdays when the offices around the area are open. During the weekend, the place is peaceful.

Dubai: Shakespeare & Co. in Jumeirah Beach Road

May 31, 2013
As many of you know by now, I am in love with this breakfast nook. I have been frequenting their branches in Marina Mall and Souk Al Bahar but since the weather these days in Dubai is starting to be unfriendly, we have been going to their Shakespeare & Co. in Jumeirah Beach Road since it has an air-conditioned smoking area and a pretty big, covered, al fresco dining area. However, everytime that we are there &

Dubai, UAE | Shakespeare & Co. at Souk Al Bahar

November 19, 2010
Shakespeare & Co, Souk Al Bahar, Dubai
We were supposed to go to Limetree Cafe to break away from the norm of having subway’s italian BMT for breakfast – that’s me and the boyfriend. I wanted to treat him for something fancier than a subway sandwich because I feel like I’m getting the longer end of the stick for the past eid days (he pays for dinner and drinks which is way more expensive compared to the subway sandwiches that i p
