Where’s Open For Coffee During Ramadan

If you’re not fasting over the Holy Month of Ramadan and you’re desperate for that morning coffee to set you up for the day, we’ve put together a little list of places we love to head to post drop-off or at weekends with the whole family in tow.

21 Grams Bistro

This unique new restaurant that’s opened up just a stone’s throw away from Kite beach has the perfect mix of cosy vibes and tastefully done interiors plus food that’s made using wholesome, seasonal ingredients sourced from local farmers whenever possible. We love.

Junction of Jumeirah Beach Road and Al Thanya Street, Umm Suqeim 3
T:+971 4 3490744
Open daily 8am – 11pm

Arrows & Sparrows

Fast becoming a fave with many a mama, this gorgeous little cafe in The Greens is super family friendly. With beautiful interiors, a quirky menu and – most importantly – delicious 100% organic coffee, supplied by RAW Coffee Company. Cosy up on one of their benches and order yourself a ‘Latte In A Cone’ (yes, really!) and a babyccino for the littles. Perfect.

Emaar Business Park, The Greens
T: +971 4 5588141
Open daily 8am – 8pm

Baker & Spice

Head to one of our favourite malls and start your day watching yachts glide past the windows as you sip your latte (it’s good to dream about how the other half live, right?). The food is organic, with flavorsome egg dishes and crispy pastries 0r, if you’re feeling adventurous, order the Shakshouka (eggs cooked in tangy tomato salsa spiked with garlic, paprika, and chili), but keep it away from the little ones unless they have a taste for spice!

Dubai Marina promenade
T: +971 4 04 3624686
Open daily 8am – 11pm

Bystro

This Sassy Mama favourite ticks all the boxes, mama. Not only do they do a great cup of coffee, serve fantastic food, and have plenty to keep little tummies happy (the mini pancakes definitely deserve a mention), but there’s a small play area with toys and books that will keep tots entertained while you make it your mission to top up your caffeine levels.

Al Manara, Sheikh Zayed Road
T: +971 4 3368056
Open daily 9am – 4pm

Friends Avenue

We love this super cute little hangout – the coffee is great, breakfast is fab (and portions are huge) and their salads are fresh and delicious. It’s quirky and cosy too, a lovely place to sit and work or catch up with friends.

Cluster T, Fortune Executive Tower, Ground level
T: +971 4 5545813
Open daily 8am – 8pm

Happy Egg

One of the most adorable little cafes we’ve found in Dubai, this little spot on Umm Al Sheif Street is decked out in gorgeous Tribe interiors accessories and serves up the most delicious coffee (and a mean shakshouka too!).

32 Umm Al Sheif Street (same strip as Maria Bonita)
T: +971 4 3944729
Open daily 8am – 3am

Jones The Grocer during Ramadan

Jones The Grocer

Need somewhere for your brekkie/caffeine fix post drop-off? We hear you, mamas! And we are SO grateful for Jones the Grocer whose outlets will be open and serving up everything from the most amazing coffee to coconut flour pancakes in the mornings plus lots more.

Al Manara, Sheikh Zayed Road
T: +971 4 3466886
Open daily 7.30am – midnight

Lafayette Gourmet

Tucked away in City Walk, Lafayette Gourmet is a beautiful space that’s dedicated to all things food! The sister cafe of Lafayette Gourmet in Galleries Lafayette – you’ll find the same passion for delicious coffee and more.

City Walk
T: +9714 4033033
Open daily 8am – 2am

Lime Tree Cafe

This Dubai institution is a firm favourite with mamas around the city for many reasons – not least because it serves a great coffee and slice of cake! And not just that all of their 3 cafes have ‘fun corners’ aimed at keeping the kiddos entertained, allowing mama to sip her coffee in peace.

Sheikh Zayed Road – open daily 7.30am – 9pm
Al Quoz – open daily 7.30am – 6pm
Jumeirah 1 – open daily 7.30am – 6pm
T: +971 4 3256325

Reform Social

Yes mamas, you can still grab your pub grub at Reform Social & Grill! While their outdoor areas are all shut during fasting hours, they serve up breakfast from 8am so this is a fab choice if you’re up early (always?!) and need to get out somewhere that doesn’t mind if the kids are running wild!

The Lakes
T: +971 4 4542638
Open daily 8am – midnight (liquor served all day)

sunrise-market-the-sum-of-us

Tom & Serg

Serious coffee drinkers won’t be disappointed by a visit to Tom&Serg – and now we mention it, neither will serious foodies either. But it isn’t just the menu that makes this Al Quoz warehouse-style café worth a visit, as you’ll find a small kiddie area at the back of the upstairs area too, with books, LEGO bricks, and a couple of play mats. There’s a small table and chairs too, making it possible for the littlies in your party to decamp and enjoy their babycinos together.

Al Joud Centre, Al Quoz
T: +971 56 4746812
Open daily 8am – 4pm and on weekends until 6pm

The Sum of Us

Mmmm, is there anything better than a warm buttered slice of homemade sourdough bread? The Sum Of Us has a comfort menu inspired by all those good old family favourites, sure to please even the pickiest of eaters. And the coffee? A-MA-ZING!

Burj Al Salam
Sheikh Zayed road
T: +971 56 4457526
Open daily 8am – 11pm

XVA Gallery Cafe

What better time to head into the old historic Al Fahidi District than during Ramadan? Get yourself some headspace by wandering the quiet streets before heading to the beautiful XVA Gallery –  home to the XVA Cafe (Gordon Ramsay says it’s his fave in Dubai), rumoured to have the best cheesecake and mint tea in the city.

Al Fahidi Historic District 
T:+9714 3535383
Open daily 7am – 9pm
