It’s the most important meal of the day, so do it right
Brothaus Fun fact: the literal translation of Brothaus from German is, surprisingly, bread house. And that’s exactly what you can expect if you fancy a bit of fresh bread for breakfast. You can also tuck into a range of cakes, made to order too, as well as bottomless lemonade or ice tea. Prices vary. Daily from 7.30am. Steigenberger Hotel Business Bay, www.steigenberger.com/en (04 369 0000).
Flow Perhaps if binge breakfasting isn’t your thing, healthy eating light bites are? Flow, the new boutique café in Jumeirah Emirates Towers, is offering up all-day brekkie featuring all kinds of eggs, or even blueberry waffles with honey lime yoghurt, toasted almonds and coconut. That’s worth getting out of bed for. Also expect premium coffee and healthy smoothies. Prices vary. Fri-Sat 8am-5pm. Jumeirah Emirates Towers, Sheikh Zayed Road, www.flowdubai.com (055 293 4430).
jones the grocer For many, the most important part of breakfast is coffee, and that’s why we like the look of jones the grocer’s new offering - free cafetiére refills with breakfast! Purchase any breakfast item, such as eggs, pancakes or porridge, and you’ll get free refills until midday! Oh, and if two adults get a main, one child’s meal is free! Prices vary. Fri-Sat 7.30am-4pm. Indigo Central 8, Sheikh Zayed Road, www.jonesthegrocer.com (04 346 6886).
Russo’s New York Pizzeria Yes, it’s a pizzeria doing breakfast.

Or try a healthier angle with lemon white quinoa, free-range poached eggs and roasted bell peppers. Prices vary. Daily, 8am-11pm.
