Baker & Spice reigns supreme in Souk Al Bahar thanks to its prime location beside The Dubai Fountain. A bright and airy venue with a beautiful terrace overlooking the water, this is a calm and relaxing escape from the sun and bustling atmosphere of nearby Dubai Mall. The menu offers a selection of fresh, organic and home-made options with most ingredients sourced locally in the UAE. From the menu, we’re impressed with the gnocchi and seemingly never-ending supply of freshly-baked bread. The coffee is worth going back for, too, as is the fast and friendly service.
Open Mon-Sun 8am-11pm. Souk Al Bahar, Downtown Dubai, (04 427 9856).
