Get ready to re-connect with your girls for a good old gossip! We’ve asked around to find out where the girls are going for great coffee, nice healthy food and a relaxed cafe vibe…
Friends Avenue Cafe
This cafe in JLT is a hidden gem. They focus on having a super friendly and warming atmosphere, good coffee and comforting space to enjoy healthy, tasty breakfasts like the Green Morning Bowl and Good Morning Granola or lunch items like the Chipotle Chicken Wrap and Super Food Salad…yum!
Daily 8 am – 10 pm, JLT, Cluster T, (ground level) Fortune Executive Tower
The warm and rustic decor of 1762 is perfect for a mid-morning breakie with the girls, the deli-style counter displays the most scrumptious food options like the ‘Super Skinny’ Egg White Wrap, Salmon & Avocado Nori Roll and the 1762 Salad with a choice of proteins on the side – we adore their freshly pressed juices and smoothies!
Daily 8 am – 6 pm, JLT, DIFC, Media City & JAFZA.
Circle Cafe began in 2003 by two mums who had a love of New York bagels and has since grown to open many more outlets in Dubai.
The cafes are stylish yet still casual with a homely laid back atmosphere, and their ethos is to produce simple, fresh and delicious food. The menu ranges from sandwiches, burgers and sliders to nutritious salad bowls and a Vegan section.
Daily 8 am – 11 pm, Studio City, Media City, Business Bay, Silicon Oasis, Health Care City & World Trade Center, Shorooq Mirdif, Dubai Mall
Arrows and Sparrows
The Greens is a great central spot to meet up, and Arrows and Sparrows is a regular work/coffee spot for the She Wants Team.
This is a really cute little neighbourhood cafe serving up high-quality, healthy food and great coffee by well-trained baristas. The staff here are super friendly, and there’s even a kids corner with classic wooden toys to keep the little ones entertained while you chat!
Daily 8 am – 10 pm, The Greens, Emaar Business Park, Building 4
Comptoir 102 is a healthy cafe and concept store in Jumeirah 1 with a divine retro, boho chic design and the most chilled out atmosphere – it’s the type of place where you can’t understand where the time has gone! The menu is centred around sustainable, nutritious food from local organic farms; you can get sugar free, dairy free and vegan options – all delicious!
Hold onto your wallets though ladies as you can get totally carried away with their beautiful treasure trove of bohemian home furnishings, unique jewellery and hand-picked fashion pieces!
Daily 7.30 am – 9 pm, 102 Jumeirah Rd, Jumeirah 1
Wild & The Moon
We love Wild & The Moons concept of super healthy food with no refined sugar, no additives or chemicals, no GMOs, no soy, no dairy, no gluten – nothing added! There’s absolutely no compromise on taste with a super delicious plant-based menu and cold press juices; the decor makes you feel right at home too!
Daily 8 am – 7 pm, Al Serkal Avenue, Al Quoz
Tom & Serg
We couldn’t write about our favourite cafes without including Tom & Serg! We’ve been going to (and writing about) Tom & Serg for a long time now, and we still can’t get enough.
The industrial style, the two-story cafe in Al Quoz is a hub of relaxed cafe style dining and great food using only the highest quality ingredients, with breakfast items like Our Gado and Breaky Bao (they love to put their own spin on things) and the coffee always hits the spot!
They just opened inside Vox Cinema MOE – healthy cinema snacks how cool is that?
Daily 8.00am – 4.00pm, Al Quoz
The Farm Al Barari
This spot could be one of the lushest, greenest spots in Dubai and is the perfect place to spend a long and lazy breakie with friends and family.
Fresh bread is baked daily on-site, and the breakfast menu serves up seriously delicious homemade healthy food, one of our all-time breaky faves – Shakshuka, a spicy tomato based egg dish served with Arabic bread…divine!
There’s plenty on offer for the little ones too, like The Farm Paint Brush, Belgian waffles with an array of fun toppings.
