Think it’s only Saturday that gets to have the Brunching fun in Dubai?
Forget the notion of Brunch falling between breakfast and lunch. Brunch in Dubai is all about afternoon dining for all the family to enjoy in a laid back setting.
Whilst Saturdays are the new Friday and the most popular day for a Dubai brunch, Sunday brunching is rapidly growing in popularity as a more relaxed and family-friendly affair.
We’ve picked out our favourite spots across the city to enjoy Sunday Brunch in Dubai.
Al Maeda is a high-class restaurant that manages to offer an excellent, yet casual feel. Its elegant yet understated decor and excellent views make it a great place to have Saturday brunch in Dubai.
Sit on the outdoor terrace where you will be shaded from the heat of the sun but given a breathtaking view of the sea. Indoor seating is also available and is just as comfortable as the arrangement on the terrace.
Sunday’s are where “Life is Sweet” with a free flow of delicious bites, grills, desserts, frosty drinks all with a pink twist.
Where to find Al Maeda: DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Dubai – Jumeirah Beach
Sunday brunch hours: 12:30 pm to 4:30 pm.
