If you're non-Muslim, there's several places you can eat breakfast and lunch at this Ramadan. So if you're planning a brunch with your girls or a breakfast with your close ones, you can still do so as long as you're abiding by certain considerations like eating and drinking indoors in designated covered areas during the daylight hours. Here's our pick of places we love:
1. Hardrock Cafe
Whats not to love about rock 'n roll music with a side of American classics? With a laidback vibe, it's the perfect spot to chill with your pals. If burgers and shakes are more up your alley, they serve some of the best out there.
Dubai Festival City Mall (04 232 8900)
2. The Irish Village
We're totally a fan the vibe at the Irish Village. With delish stews and other Irish faves, it's a great spot for a brunch with your pals.
Al Garhoud (04 282 4750)
3. Roseleaf Cafe
a book emotionally destroyed me last night (i'm looking at you, the astonishing color of after) so i'm finding a way to make myself feel better and sun-lit coffeeshops make me happy so here i am and it's officially my weekend soooo hooray! . // HAVE A GREAT WEEK AHEAD — #LOOKINGFORABURA #cafe#coffeeshopcorners#coffeeshop#thursday#roseleafcafe
An aesthetically pleasing décor is just one of the many selling points of this place. Not only have they succeeded in bringing the outdoors inside with the tall glass windows, they also offer a generous amount of home-made food with their well-known cakes and coffee. This seems to be the perfect place for some alone time. Just sit back, have a cup of coffee, read a book and rejuvenate.
