Is your mind already drifting to this weekend’s plans? If the answer is yes, then we’ve got two top brunches you need to try in Downtown Dubai.

Enjoy an afternoon of poolside eating and drinking al fresco at the White Friday Brunch at Cabana in Address Dubai Mall hotel. With a relaxed outdoor setting, feast on live cooking stations bursting with seafood, fresh-from-the-grill barbecued meats and delicious pasta.

A DJ plays all brunch long from 12pm to 4pm, with the four-hour package and soft drinks priced at Dhs295, it’s Dhs395 with house drinks or Dhs495 for the premium package. Not ready to go home at 4pm? Not to worry, theres 50 percent off selected beverages from 4pm to 7pm, so you’ve got plenty of time to catch up with your friends.

When it comes to fabulous outdoor terraces for an ultra-chic brunch, The Restaurant at Address Boulevard, Downtown, definitely passes the test. With cool booth-style seating and epic views of the iconic Burj Khalifa, it’s the ultimate setting for ladies who brunch.

The Garden Brunch runs every Friday from 12pm to 4pm and will come as a delight to foodies who like to try a little bit of everything. Expect an impressive seafood spread including fresh oysters and sushi rolls as well as an indulgent cheese bar and generous helpings of homemade pasta to pile high on your plate.

A live singer will be on hand to set the scene, with a DJ also entertaining throughout the day. Packages start at Dhs285 for soft drinks, Dhs395 for house and Dhs495 for the premium package.
