Circle Café

Nominated for Best Café Comments

Its minimalist white interior and quirky memorabilia on the shelves above the cakes at the entrance are intriguing and inviting at the Media City outpost of this pleasant eatery. The circle theme runs throughout, with circular tables, cushioned white ornate chairs with circular backs and its broadsheet-style menu, ‘The Circle Times’ (a nod to the media types who dine here from their offices nearby, that details the main ingredients used). Combined with views of the Media City lake, it’s perfectly located for a picturesque lunchtime stop. It gets busy though, probably because service is swift and portion sizes are generous, offering great value for your dirham whilst delighting the taste buds. We’d recommend the beef burger bagel accompanied by sweet potato fries, which come sprinkled with zaatar – a blend of dried basil, oregano, thyme, sesame seeds and salt – complimenting the sweetness of the perfectly crisped chips. The Italian chicken almond salad is also a popular dish and well worth a try.
Open daily 8am-11.30pm. Dubai Media City, www.circle-cafe.com (04 391 5170).

They have a very creative restaurant, also good menu choices. My favorite food there is flattened chicken. We also use their online ordering and I am glad that they have on time delivery.

The Zaatar Chips hurt your mouth after a handful, although the delivery is great!

The place is amazing, running like a bee hive quick and cordial service by all staff, the food is made well and the salads are just right. My favorite is the soup specially the Lentel. I recommened to that you make a pit stop during lunch ... One thing though, you need to have high tolerance for noise...
