Shakespeare and co is a wonderful place for a coffee break. I visited the branch in Dubai Mall and was fantastic. Great atmosphere and delicious food. The staff was not very friendly. We were waiting 20 minutes to get the bill and there was just a couple of tables... and we missed the Dubai Fouintains shows... so we have to... More

We enjoyed breakfast here and felt like royalty. You get lost in the ambience of thinking you are in an English garden when you realize there are high rises all around you.

I really love going here for lunch and breakfast. The food is delicious and decently priced! Sometimes the service is slow but they do serve allot of people at once so you got to understand.

This location is in Ibn Batuta Mall in Dubai. I could not find in your locator. Very good location. They do have shisha sit out. Very close to cinema complex. Good food. Had a grilled salmon baked pasta and a mixed berries milkshake.Salmon texture was good and tasty. Pasta al dente and a creamy & filling milkshake.

You may rarely find a place on the grace at the mid of the city in Dubai within a elite location , this place is one , where you may have a Shisha on the small greenish location , the service wasn't at the level of the location
