Breakfast is the most important meal of the day and during the weekend it should never be rushed. In Dubai, weekend breakfasts are something of an occasion; carefree, drawn-out affairs with fabulous food and drink, and always served with a side of sunshine. Whatever whets your appetite in the morning, you’ll find it here; from mouth-watering buffets overflowing with the freshest pastries and fruits, to exquisite internationally inspired dishes made with expertly sourced ingredients. Here are our favourite places to enjoy a leisurely weekend breakfast.

 

Tuck into Le Parisien at Sahn Eddar

Flooded by the morning sun, there’s nowhere quite like Burj Al Arab’s grand atrium, Sahn Eddar. The light sparkles off the bright floor and water jets dance as you dine. Breakfast here immerses diners in the elegance and sophistication of a classic French brasserie, bite by bite. Dine La Parisien way on continental delights, such as oven-fresh viennoiseries from the boulangerie, with nectar-like Emirati honey. Taste the finest cheeses, from aged Comté to Brie de Meaux, and wash them down with velvety Grand Cru Valrhona hot chocolate.

The breakfast of champions.

At award-winning, British-inspired gastropub D&A, at Jumeirah Beach Hotel, Full English breakfasts are served with authentically sourced ingredients, including meats from Dingly Dell Farm, Suffolk. For those looking for something lighter, the à la carte menu has some healthy options too.
