“Favourite Dubai cafe”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2013

One of my favourite cafes in Dubai. Beautiful semi-enclosed setting in the garden, delicious and modern menu (especially at breakfast), and excellent coffee (the real calling card for me!). Also has some nice takeaway gifts (e.g. nice gingerbread at Christmas etc).

“Kid and pet friendly”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013

What a great combination! Good food, location and kid & pet friendly. I like going there for breakfast and small lunches and the best part is I can take my kids and dog in tow. Service is friendly, food is good and decent coffee and juices. Go to the original one on the beach road though. Enjoy your time.

“Good Cafe, Good Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013

Me and my partner had our first try lunch yesterday and surprisingly amazed with the taste and quite huge portion of sandwich and dessert. Indeed the carrot cake one of the best we had so far in Dubai. Comparing to the price we pay, its worth because at the end we do enjoy and satisfied. Love the interior of the cafe and the ambience how it feels like home.

And as we cant get enough, we did went to another Lime Tree Cafe branch in Ibn Batuta just for another carrot cake and this time additional of triple chocolate brownies. And yep, both of us still agree its one of the best one we had in Dubai.

“Eco friendly”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

Only been to the one in Media City. Great decor, fresh food and loads of choice at a price that won't break the bank.

“Worst option in Jumeirah”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013 via mobile

Food is ok- portions are small and it masquerades as healthy food but is in fact very oily and full of dressings. Food has not changed much in past few years. If you like the carrot cake- go to spinneys opposite, get the exact same cake for half the price and enjoy it at home where you won't be treated indifferently by the wait staff or worse still abused by the woman who appears to be the manager but whose competence level suggests she wouldn't manage to get wet if she fell out of a boat..
Of course if you enjoy overpriced, over rated food in a noisy mess hall, surrounded by flies whilst being serenaded by the whiny screams of a horde of toddlers.. Knock yourself out!
There are at least 3 other far better options within walking radius- however I hesitate to mention them to people who don't have the presence of mind or natural curiosity to seek out a far better establishment. Boycott this place if you have high standards.
