“Really great place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013 via mobile

The food is excellent and the variety is good, so far. But if you do go a few times the selection starts to seem a bit limited. But in fairness to them they are asking what customers want with an electronic survey so hopefully that will happen soon. The service does need to be looked at as it can be slow to get a drink or the bill. That aside it is a great new addition to Dubai. Well done folks.

“A touch overrated”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013 via mobile

The food is nice and I especially like the breakfast options (the eggs Benedict is awesome). However, there is always a wait at the door, the price is very high and I always leave thinking I should have just gone to More Cafe instead. It is good but not good enough to justify the price. They will have to be careful that the buzz surrounding this restaurant doesn't become a whimper.

“A Victim of it's Own Success???”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013

Located on Sheikh Zayed Road near the Al Thani turn-off lies Jones the Grocer. The inside is like a shop but feels like a restaurant, or is it like a restaurant and feels like a shop? Whatever, it works and it is cool. We have been for breakfast many times, I especially recommend the Eggs Benedict which are yummy.
Word has spread, and on weekends the place is super busy and the Service has suffered. I do hope they can remedy this as the menu, food and ambience is excellent
