It’s supposed to be the main feast of the day and why should we conflict? Regardless of whether you’re wanting a full English cook or a temperate acai bowl, Dubai’s breakfast eateries and bistros get it done.

From long and comfortable to quick and painless, we’ve gathered together the best spots for breakfast in Dubai.

Baker & Spice

It’s hard to go past the gently spiced shakshouka, but if you do want to stray, then may we suggest you veer towards the Turkish eggs with feta, labneh, Aleppo pepper, pita bread and salad. They also do fabulous croissants, baked fresh each day. There are a few venues around the city, but we recommend the one facing the Dubai Fountain for a nice view.

Souk Al Bahar, Downtown Dubai, Dubai, daily 8am to 11pm. Tel: (04) 425 2240.

Bistro Des Arts

Perched on the corner of Dubai Marina Mall you’ll find Bistro Des Arts, a cosy French restaurant that serves up a great value breakfast brunch on the weekends. For Dhs99, you’ll get to help yourself from the social table to start, where there’s a selection of fresh juices, pastries, cheese and cold cuts. Then, pick your main from a collection of hearty breakfasts, a made-to-order crepe and a hot beverage.
