Brunch in Dubai is so much more than enjoying French toast and eggs benedict past 10 a.m. From samba dancers to rooftop DJs, here’s a roundup of the best brunch spots to visit in 2022.
Brunch is a big deal in Dubai. It’s become a way to enjoy the extravagance of the emirate, with countless cuisines, live entertainment, and festive after-parties often the norm.
There’s often no set time – some brunch spots kick off before midday, others don’t get started until the afternoon – and no set menu items. Variety is the spice of life and across the brunch venues in Dubai, and there’s plenty to choose from.
Regardless of where you decide to brunch, having a professional chauffeur on hand is a must. By downloading the Blacklane app, you can access premium vehicles to whisk you to and from brunch with ease.
Now your transportation is sorted, it’s time to pick your perfect brunch spot in Dubai.
