With its charmingly quirky decor which is an eclectic mix of doilies, chintz and chic, it’s no wonder this chain of cafés has become popular with the mum-set. However, the Al Safa branch has another weapon up its sleeve to attract families in the form of a kid’s play room complete with little seats, a well-stocked toy box and a large TV. Not only that, but they have somehow managed to position it so that unless you choose to sit down the side passage, you’ll always have a good view of your offspring. Aside from that of course, the food is great too. We favour the breakfast menu with its neat poached eggs and jenga-style chips, while the kids tuck into a tasty Barbecue pizza, big enough for both of them to share.
Open daily, 7am to 10pm. Al Safa Centre. www.shakespeareandco.ae (04 329 1040).

  • Best for: Romantic

I fell in love with the chocolate Mogador cake while siiting in the romantic Alice in Wonderland type setting. The food ,the patisserie,and the decor all make me want to come back for more. I think this would be a great place to pop in for a business lunch or just while away the afternoon playing backgammon and sipping tea with friends.
