This cafe must have some of the freshest homemade food in Dubai! The owners originate from New Zealand, and the arrange of salads, meats and pies is spectacular, not to mention the desserts! The best Carrot cake in the world! Lovely location known mainly to the residents of Dubai rather than the tourist trail. Close to Jumeirah Mosque.

A return visit to The Lime Tree was a must. Their carrot cake is to die for. Their portions of carrot cake are large so easily can be shared. Lovely atmosphere sat outside under the canopy. Service good as always. Accommodating for all age groups. Would recommend a visit

This was a quick lunch and the service was very efficient. I loved the food but it was hard to go for healthy options given all the temptations. Still it was worth it! Would also suggest Lime Tree for breakfasts...

These guys don't put prices on their menu or even their black board so they can increase the prices on a daily basis, without having to pay the admin cost. Shocking. They also don't let the staff eat a free meal. So they don't know how anything tastes as even with a 50% discount it still going to cost a... More

It's difficult to be different with so many catering options available. This place is however a bit different and popular. There's seating in front, inside and on top. We waited for a front table. You go to the counter and select and pay for your food and the waiter brings it to your table. Our meal was fine - -Vege... More

Vero nice place, cozy and comfortable. Went there for breakfast few times. The food is good, a bit overpriced tough. The muesli used is quite tasty.

Fresh food but counter service. It doesn't justify its prices and it ends up being a yuppy hangout for no other reason than its too pricey for many. Food is fine and fresh but nothing stands out to make me want to go there

Was one of my favorite place when i came first in dubai 2 years ago. May be because its becoming too popular the quality is becoming desapointing. The browny is made of chocolate but one can not call this a browny. Also the follow up with the product is poor. One day there is this, for which u r coming... More

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.
