Cafés are perhaps the latest trend around town- from those that have specific aesthetics for the gram, to those that are perfect to visit after a busy day. With around 4,000 cafés across UAE, the competition must be immensely high as to what makes which place the most unique to be in- whether your visits be related to work, study or to just go out with your friends to have a good bite and a great time. So be worry-free! No matter which area of the UAE you reside in, here is a list of the best cafés in every emirate as rated by trusted sites.
Dubai: Common Grounds, The Beach
As shared by Timeout Dubai, this magnificent coffee hub in the heart of JBR is the newest location of the Common Grounds empire (there are four in total in Dubai). Chefs conjure up a broad choice of foods, from breakfasts to salads, wraps, and some vegan treats, whether it’s breakfast, brunch, lunch, or simply a superb cup of coffee from Encounter Coffee. Oh, and it has a fantastic sourdough pizza. There’s no better place to go for comfort food and luscious beach atmosphere.
Sharjah: Fen Café, Sharjah Art Foundation
Fen Café & Restaurant, derived from the word “art,” is a romantic hotspot buried away in the Sharjah Art Foundation, the city’s cultural crown gem.
