Looks great! But nothing on the menu available...

Me and my husband ate at this cafe today and thought we had found a hidden gem during Ramadan for lunch. The cafe looks great and very welcoming, only downside is they did not have most of what we asked for on the menu. We asked for a burger and we was asked which bagel do u want? A bagel... read more

Hmm I have had good experiences in this branch. I ate here with my bosses and colleagues and they gave us very good service and all freshly cooked food.

WHAT? Circle cafe is a homely casual dining cafe in the middle of Business Bay. It might be a bit hard to find but as this place serves something I have not seen much of in Dubai it is worth the search. Specialised in healthy home-made food Circle cafe originally started with simple NYC-style bagels but they soon expanded their... More

To erin cafe latter and tea with cold milk. Service good and friendly and the ambience is smart. There was quite a lot of variety on the menu and all... More

This is one of my favorite places for a relatively guilt free lunch. Their salads are innovative and taste divine - I often don't even mix in the dressing. They serve generous portions which I at times split to dinner. The reason I say relatively guilt free is more often than not end up with a large slice of cake... More

I typically order my lunch from Circle 2-3 times a week, so I'm no stranger to their food. However, it's rare that I venture to their actual restaurant for lunch. I visited their Studio City branch for lunch, and it was excellent. It's in a lovely location with an airy restaurant overlooking the lake. I had my usual - a... More

Today, me and 6 other friends decided to have lunch @ Circle Cafe. Our orders: sweet potato fries, 2 chicken tacos, chicken shawarma plate, asparagus risotto, 2 coffees, frutini juice drink. And sodas. Here's how it all went down: 1) the sweet potato fries came cold- cooler than room temperature, but not quite ref cold. 2) the coffee came room... More

I have never been there but I order constantly from them. Their salads - especially qinoa tabbouleh fab. Some of the mains and I single out the Thai chicken curry fabulous as it has the spices without being fiery. The carrot cake really a winner. Recommend the food but cannot tell you about the place it self nor the service... More

Have been to the Jumeirah Beach Road branch 3 times. The level of service the first 2 times and the quality of food was amazing. The third time was an absolute nightmare.

Food is good and I feel as far as Dubai goes it's decent value for money. Not many places have sweet potato so I like it. The staff are generally terrible

Staying in Jumeirah

Neighborhood Profile
Jumeirah
Years ago, before the skyscrapers, before the 12-lane highway, there was only Jumeirah. In fact, when the UAE was formed, its rulers signed the agreement in Union House, at the very start of Jumeirah Beach Road. Often called “The Beverly Hills” of Dubai, a drive down Beach Road reveals one enormous, lavish villa after another. Originally residential-only neighborhoods, they are now also home to an array of cafes, smart boutiques, and art galleries. Home to one of Dubai’s few public beaches, this recently renovated area includes a new boardwalk, running and walking track, with changing facilities and cafes along the way. Another landmark, Jumeirah Mosque, is the only mosque in Dubai that can be entered by non-Muslims. As part of the Sheikh Mohammed Centre for Cultural Understanding, the mosque hosts regular tours and talks about Islam, as part of an “Open Doors, Open Minds” program. A wonderful way to understand more about the UAE and Islam.
