Circle Cafe - Dubai

Trendy café chain with simple stylish décor and hip, modern dishes

Time Out Says

It is not at all uncommon to see Media City workers waiting for lunch tables at this popular lakeside café during Dubai’s cooler months. There is something about the friendly service, simple and fresh dishes and laidback atmosphere that makes Circle the type of place you’d visit again and again. Inside is more cramped, but when the mercury is rising it’s a simplistic and chic alternative. The menu is dominated by a massive selection of sandwiches and salads; both are generously-proportioned and imaginative. We recommend either a crispy noodle salad or the tender steak salad – complete with a richly-flavoured blue cheese dressing – or any one of the big bagels. Main courses are available, with a lamb shank at less than Dhs70 being a bargain in our eyes, but this is an eatery best enjoyed while catching up with a friend over manageable bites and home-made smoothies.
