If you’ve missed Dubai’s infamous institution, we have some good news…

Dubai brunches have been a topic of conversation for different reasons over the last few weeks. Instead of discussing where to go, who has the best deal and what you’ll be wearing, there’s only been one question. When are they coming back?

If this thought has entered your mind, wonder no more as we’re here to deliver some good news. As restaurants were granted the permission to serve alcohol with food, the announcements begin to flood in that Dubai brunches were back on track.

It’s worth noting that all brunches will be table service (no buffet) with social distancing measures in place. A maximum of four guests are permitted per table and can stay for a maximum of three hours.

Here are the brunches taking place in Dubai this weekend.
