The city of Dubai takes breakfast very seriously and, with so many places to choose from, we felt the need to round up the best of the best. Disclaimer: they won’t break the bank, but we can’t say the same about your diet!

One Life Kitchen & Café
The cool kid of cafés in Dubai, this two-storey café has a small library, a working space, and delicious dishes that you won’t even realise are healthy! With breakfast being served until 3pm, options include Stacked Bancakes (gluten-free banana and oat flour pancakes with berries, almond flakes, and maple syrup) and Portobello Toast (roasted mushrooms sliced on smashed avocado on sourdough toast, topped with sautéed leeks and cherry tomatoes). One Life has also partnered with Deliveroo Editions, which means they deliver across Dubai, so you don’t need to visit d3 to enjoy its breakfast. (Insider tip: 20% off first orders.)
