I live in Dubai and my favorite place to have a breakfast is FC. Very good price and each breakfast comes with orange juice, coffee and basket of bread. My husband always ask for the Connection Breakfast: french toast, seasonal fruits and maple syrop and I always have my FC Benedict: Two poached eggs on a layer of bread, turkey,... More

service was disappointing. Menus took a good fifteen minutes to reach us. Food was cold and when we complained to the staff they made excuses. Never going back there

Even though there were few customers there, the wait staff was surly and inattentive. It took forever for them to take my order, and I got not get any additional service besides bringing my food out (late). The food was ok, not great but not terrible. But the final point for me was that they charged 20 dirhams for a... More

In my opinion French connection serves the best value breakfast in Dubai. I normally have the Eggs Benedict (FC Benedict) and while it’s not strictly the traditional version of the dish, it’s still the best one I have had in Dubai, including More café’s pricier version which timeout seems to rave about.

I used to frequent French connection every time I visited Dubai. Their crème brulée is exquisite. They have free wifi which is a given now a days. Excellent coffee and by far the best cakes you can get. I am a big fan of the strawberry cheesecake and the chocolate mousse cake
