“Nothing to do with Shakespeare”
Reviewed December 4, 2012

I dont know why its named Shakespeare cafe as it has nothing to do with Shakespeare. No literature nor the decor. Having said that its a nice place for lunch or a quick snack. Located on Jumeirah Beach Road, its a popular place for regulars. Consists of both an indoor and open, covered area. The 1 difference from other open cafes is that the open area has fans to keep you cool during the blistering summer months. Service is good, food is a mix of Lebanese, Pastas & Pizzas, sandwiches, crepes and pastries. The crepes & local Saj are great as are the fresh juices & pastries. A snack with drink will cost approx. $20 per head and a main course will be double that. Try a mint lemonade or iced coffee with a crepe or Saj as a quick snack on a hot summers day.

“Love the staff”
Reviewed December 4, 2012

The staff in this chain are one of the best in Dubai. I frequent this restaurant almost every week. The food is great. The price is slightly on the higher side and the interior decor can be a bit subtle.

“Lovely!”
Reviewed December 3, 2012

The interior design is lovely, the food is very good and the staff are friendly and helpful. The atmosphere is lovely! I went for lunch but any meal time would probably be good one at Shakespeares.

“Cute”
Reviewed November 16, 2012

We went here for a bit of lunch while shopping on our first day in Dubai. The food was excellent and the service great.

It looks like the cutest little English tea shop, with gorgeous chairs and cushions and lots of tempting cakes on display.

Try the cherry shisha!
