Artistic fun for kids in this Jumeirah café 60 Reviews

From Time Out Dubai Eating Out 2009

A great venue for families, the arty activities will always take centre stage over the menu, but Café Ceramique’s food offering is varied, good value and, largely speaking, tasty.

There’s a wide selection of soups, salads and interestingly filled bagels; the steak and brie is particularly juicy. The cafe also does hearty all-day breakfasts and gourmet sandwiches, although the dry chicken shawarma pockets need to be drowned in garlic dip to give them some succulence.

But it’s the pot painting which really steals the show here. The hundreds of somewhat precariously-placed ceramics may look like an accident waiting to happen, but the atmosphere is, surprisingly, one of calm and intense artistic creation.

The super-friendly waiters are exceedingly helpful on the ceramic front, although this is perhaps to the detriment of the food service. On our last visit, it took more than 45 minutes for our simple order to arrive. One tip: skip the lacklustre dessert counter and plump for the delicious gourmet cappuccino: vanilla-infused and topped with whipped cream and chocolate chunks, it’s decadent and delicious enough to be a pud in itself.

It is great for an exciting and rewarding family experience. I love to have breakfast food at any time of day. I like this feature a lot.
There is a good reason to go back and bring the kids. They keep on asking to do so.
Congratulations to the owners for such an innovative and creative concept.

It was a pleasure to spend my Saturday afternoons at the Jumeirah branch during my 2 pregnancies to take time off for myself , enjoy a nice calm ambiance and work on something i enjoyed which is ceramics. I love to take the kids as well and they love to spend time coloring and making a mess :)
I had my daughter's 4 year old birthday there too, the service was excellent, the staff was very friendly and the kids had a blast.

Good for family outing when your family can enjoy the food while doing ceramic painting. The right place for guess to express thier own creativity & It teach you to be more patience until the whole part is done.

A different way of spending those long summer months, people tend to explore their ART side which would have been dormant for a while..excellent place suggestable to go in a group, though i wouldn't mind going alone and getting lost whilst creating ART :)
