Ultra Brasserie

Tasty low calorie eating

Circle Café

Simple good food

Here, the huge all-day dining menu ranges from hearty and belly-filling (the asparagus and mushroom risotto, AED68/US$18.50), to healthy and calorie-conscious (the Hawaiian poke bowl, AED68/US$18.50), with plenty of fast snacks and smoothies. The location couldn’t be better –you’ll find Circle Café right between the Dubai World Trade Centre Metro and the Convention Centre and Halls entrances, With the option of seating both indoor and outdoor.

The Daily

Designed for ‘coffice’ workers

Great coffee and wifi

Within Media City’s range of hotel restaurants and sushi joints, this table service and takeaway cafe is a welcome oasis. They have a reliable menu of wraps and salad, plus a few hot meals of the day (written next to the blackboard’s wifi password) to keep media types tables happy, plus Sheik Zayed Road’s best coffee on this side.

Wild and the Moon

A taste of innovative favourites

In the heart of Al-Quoz’s arty hub, this healthy cafe ticks all the boxes for those who keep their diet vegan, raw, or gluten-free.

Arrows and Sparrows

Casual and relaxed dining

Arrows and Sparrows is a relaxed alternative to the crowded business hub located in the central Emaar Business Park, around the corner from Dubai Gold and Diamond Park.
