Time Out Says

You’ve been Searching for ages for that perfect garden furniture, and you’ve finally found it at Dubai Garden Centre. And that deserves a piece of cake at the very least. Which is where Roseleaf comes in handy.

This cute little café is set in a conservatory just off the main thoroughfare of the plants and garden ornaments. Bright, airy and flooded with natural light and sunshine, it’s the perfect mood-lifting space.

Dishes are simple, and there are plenty of veggie-friendly options on the menu. Food is displayed at the counter, if you want to grab-and-go, but there’s table service, too.

The avocado toast is always a decent choice, but if you’re having lunch try the freshly baked quiches and frittatas. The leek and feta quiche is tasty enough, but Mary Berry would have words to say about less than crispy base. The roasted butternut frittata is excellent though. It’s packed full of squash, spinach and feta and is delicious. And for Dhs32 with a handful of salad it’s an affordable lunch.

There are also plenty of salads, smoothies and coffees, too.

And don’t miss the cakes, proudly displayed in massive slices. Our pick? the deliciously indulgent millionaire shortbread. The crumbly biscuit is smothered in rich caramel and a generous layer of chocolate, making it the perfect cheat day treat. Plus it’s big enough to share.

Dining in a garden centre might not be everyone’s cup of tea, but many expats will find it a taste of lazy weekends at home.
