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. So peaceful that I think the servers were also feeling lazy as it was a rather slow service when we were there. You’ll have to wait a minimum of 15 minutes for everything you ordered, even for a bottle of water.

I was planning to order their big breakfast but we were advised by the server that on that day, unfortunately, they do not have mushrooms, turkey bacon and tomatoes. Basically, almost all of the ingredients they need to prepare the big breakfast. So I opted for a scrambled eggs with salmon on a bagel instead. Thank goodness they’ve got eggs!


Well to be honest with you, as much as I hated waiting for a long time for my food, it was actually good. If I have written this blog on the same day that we dined there, I might have written a very impartial one since I was so pissed for waiting too long to be served. I think I woke up on the wrong side of the bed that day and it was my first meal so I was really very hungry. Anyhow, looking back to that day – the bagel was actually awesome. I am not a big fan of bread but that bagel was good! Oh so good that I think I will probably consider going back to that restaurant just because of that and I’ll just have to cross my fingers that the service will be better then.

They do home deliveries too. For more information, you may visit their website: Circle Cafe.

    Hi! I’m also a pinay and just visited their Dubai Media City branch. Since I’ve read your blog before my visit, I was expecting to experience the same. But the crew were pretty nice. The waiting time was fine considering I ordered the big breakfast and bagels. I must say, the taste is rather good especially the homestyle bagels! I’m planning to go there again some time or probably just try their online delivery as it’s really easy. http://www.circle-cafe.com/?p=home/sandwiches

    They have different branches in Dubai. But my branch is at Jumeirah Beach Park. I go there few times with my friends and family for breakfast. They are offering a variety of freshly cooked food but my favorite is their big breakfast.

    The food looks good! I’ve been to their other branch in Beach Park Plaza a long time back. But I should visit this branch one day and order the same dish you had 🙂

    Salmon for breakfast ? Is it not a bit strong in the flavour department? Crumbed fish in a bagel super, egg looks like a pasta dish from here. x

      I’m a Filipino, we eat lunch/dinner food for breakfast. LOL.
