This is a lovely place to pop for a light lunch after a night flight from the UK. My friend, her small daughter and I went for lunch and had tasty sandwiches. We then had a stroll down to the beach.

One of the best cafes in Dubai for breakfast and lunch too. I love their coffee and the quality of food is great. Its almost exist in every mall in the UAE. I would recommend the vegetarian egg Benedict, the sesame coriasant and the french onion soup.

Lovely cakes and sweet treats if you need a rest or an energy boost when shopping in Dubai or Abu Dhabi I would recommend to visit Pauls. Good selection of tea and coffees, fruit and veg drinks - lovely French onion soup served in a bread cob - average cost really I would recommend as a good pit stop

Was looking good until I found what looked like a small price of fishing line in my eggs Benedict! After showing this to the waiter he never said anything again. Was it removed from the bill? NO! So apparently it's ok to have foreign objects in your food at this restaurant. Terrible experience will not return!

Paul is a bakery that also serves more substantial meals. We had toasted sandwiches that were both hot and tasty. Being early evening the cafe was very quiet and there was no issue with smokers.

Service is always excellent. Staff are polite and helpful. The bad thing is there is no proper non smoking section- there's two or three tables with no sunshade next to one section. You are still inhaling a ton of secondhand smoke. It's frustrating that if inspection smoked everyone has to suffer. I've attached some pics for reference. The first two... More

Staying in The Marina

Neighborhood Profile
The Marina
It’s hard to believe that only a decade ago there was no marina. Opened in 2003, the man-made marina runs along a 3km stretch of shoreline. A heady mix of luxurious hotels, apartment buildings, and cafes, the marina hosts regular community events and markets, and is a wonderful place to while away an afternoon or evening. Spectacular at night when the skyscrapers glisten, here you can enjoy dinner on the beach next to the sea, or visit a high-rise bar in a hotel for a magnificent view across the Gulf and the man-made Palm Island, with the world-famous Atlantis Hotel at its end. The Walk at Jumeirah beach Residences is a pedestrianized stretch leading to a new development: The Beach. It’s one of the few places where Gulf nationals mix with tourists and Western ex-pats. It’s a popular place to show off your supercar for an evening, so watch out for Lamborghinis, Maseratis, and Ferraris in abundance.
