Shakespeare & Co

Jumeirah café is perfect for chintz, cake, coffee and main courses Reviews

Shakespeare’s USP seems to be the number of doilies, floral patterns and frilly lampshades it can squeeze into a single outlet. But if you’re not a fan of fleur de lit, don’t let this stop you – the main meals are surprisingly good too, including dishes such as chicken and tiger prawns with vegetables, very large rib eye steaks and lovely lentil soup served with warm crusty bread. Wash these down with one of the many beneficial smoothies (apple, carrot and orange makes up the tasty Energiser) followed by one of the cakes the café is renowned for. The only drawback is the shisha smoke – yet this is what seems to attract a lot of its loyal following. We’re sure William would have approved.

I really do love this place. The decor is very pink and feminine and the furniture makes me think of old France or something. The menu is great, to be fair I've only ever gone for breakfast each time I went and I've never been disappointed. I really do love their Eggs Benedict (since moving to Dubai I've only had them at the Hilton Dubai Creek and they are not as good as here).

Next time I go, I will try their cakes since a lot of people tell me that they are very good.

I love this place! It is like my home away from home-breakfast, lunch, or dinner and especially dessert.

This place is lovely, and has the best cakes in Dubai. The flowershop is fantastic.
