Friendly people, funky furniture

We visited several times for breakfast and dinner. Very good food at good prices. Staff very friendly and helpful. Quirky armchairs and tables inside.

This is a cute little restaurant at the Business Tower, just close to Mall of Dubai. The tea was great and the set up and look of restaurant was really sweet. Would recommend for tea and coffee and a something sweet.

Love everything about this cafe. The food is great, the atmosphere is welcoming and the staff is helpful. The one on Sheikh Zayed Road is bigger than the one in Dubai mall but both are equally good.

Looks like a person has entered their grandma's place with lots of old antique furniture usage in pink and blue. The best thing is breakfast is available all day. you can come in at 5 pm and demand... More

We visited the waterfront at Sharjah for lunch. The choices on the menu were plentiful giving a wide choice of options. Reasonably priced. Portions very generous. Lovely position just in front of the Sharjah fountains so an evening would be even more desirable.
