11 breakfast spots with some of the best views in Dubai
You won’t say no to a breakfast date again…
They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day and we happen to agree. Breakfast dates are the new ‘going out for dinner’ and there are plenty of Dubai restaurants and cafes ready to cater to your avo-toast, açaí-bowl, eggs-any-style dreams. But these restaurants offer breakfast with the ultimate views of Dubai.
While it’s still alfresco season, we’re all about those breakfasting outside vibes with the amazing kind of views that are synonymous with our beautiful city.
Here are 11 delicious spots to tuck into breakfast with brilliant view of Dubai
