When there for a quick pit stop on the peak to heat of mid-day. Their menu is simple but nonetheless nice. I ordered a granola with yogurt. The location is pleasant by the waters of the creek and plenty of Abras cruising between shores.

Great food, friendly staff and value for money. We dropped in for a spur of the moment breakfast because it's situated right on Dubai's creek.

The food was surprising excellent. We stubled on the restaurant right on the Creek and initially there on our own. Jeffrey was very helpful and the food was amazing. The French Toast and the Shashouka were fabulous. Great food, great service and great location. Excellent!!

The Creek
The smell of frankincense hangs thick and heavy in the
air, waves lap gently at jetties, and market traders
call to passing tourists. The creek, originally the
place where pearl boats docked and left on missions to
uncover jewels from the deep, is where the city really
began. The Al Fahidi District on the Creekside is one
of the oldest heritage sites in Dubai, easily
recognizable with its iconic wind towers, the original
