If you want to escape the sun and chill out for bit under the trees, this is the place for it. This place will instantly remind you of the backyard of your house serene calm and beautiful. The setting is very simple and comfortable under a huge tree with pretty flowers. The food and drinks are amazing.. I went here around 2:30 in the after noon and sat there having my lunch and reading my book. it was a perfect place for the break i needed after seeing the beautiful Bastakiya..a mist go place.

We had an absolutely fantastic time here today, chilling out under the shade of the tree which dominates the courtyard in which this cafe is housed.

The cafe is 15 years old and is still owned by the pearl diver who originally set it up. The food lends itself towards local dishes, but there is a fair share of more 'international' style dishes such as brownies and fresh salads, but for those who would like to try the Emarati style breakfast, I'd really recommend the cardamom seasoned sweet vermicelli with egg - sounds random, but it's utterly delicious! I'd also recommend the date and walnut cake which is served hot with cinnamon yogurt on the side.

The fruit juices are also made fresh in house, and the local art work makes for a charming backdrop to this local haunt - a truly charming oasis in the midst of the chaos that is Bur Dubai!

If you are looking for a nice place to sit down and relax after visiting the Bystakia area, look no further. This place has wonderful food and drinks, while reasonably priced. A must go place.

We found this cafe simply because others were closed - thank goodness they were. I've been visiting Dubai for over 10 years and this is one of the nicest places I have visited there. The setting is beautiful, with voile awnings to shade you from the sun, rattan furniture and a delicious menu. Add some amazing drinks, good service and even some goods to buy - a perfect oasis away from the sun and madness of the city.
