From pet-friendly spots to bottomless breakfasts…

If you’re like us at What’s On and you love breakfast, then you need to check out some of the Palm’s best spots for breakfast. From pastries, pancakes and sweet treats, to savoury delights such as shakshouka and eggs on toast, you can enjoy the most important meal of the day from the golden shores of West Beach, Golden Mile, or up high in the Palm Tower.

Here are the best places to enjoy breakfast on the shores of the Palm: 

Aura Skypool

The 210-metre-high attraction features a pool in which you can swim around the entire venue, without any obstructions and more importantly…they have breakfast.

The morning experience pass runs from 10am to 2pm, starting from Dhs250. For an afternoon slot, the timings run between 3pm and sunset, priced from Dhs275.
