Food and environment

Good food and environment that takes you away from the daily stress. The branch is quiet during day timing, especially before 2pm. The food is very delicious. I just hate the bad AC as it was a bet warm. My general experience is very good.

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.

If you're looking for a calm cute dollhouse environment with a lot of English feel, Shakespeare and Co is the right place. 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.
