Top Places to Go for Brunch in Dubai

Dubai skyline

A trip to Dubai is an assault on the senses and a pleasant contradiction of experiences; from the glitz and the glamour of its 5* hotels, man-made islands and luxury shopping, to the authentic charm of its traditional souks, and vast, hot, seemingly endless desert. There’s certainly plenty to see and do in this incredible Middle Eastern city, and while you’re there, why not make the most of its delicious food and drink offerings? Brunch is a big deal here, and we’ve rounded up some of the best spots for you to get involved in the action, from the high end, to the quirky, to the family friendly. Happy brunching!

Quirky

Candypants Dim Sum Disco 395 AED (house beverages)

Alloro, Dubai

Budget
