Pretty Places & Cool Cafes To Get Your Cup Of Jo With A Side Of Instagram
Whether you’re looking for a post drop-off space to soak up some peace & quiet or tap away at the laptop – or you want to treat the kiddos to a babyccino, there are some seriously sassy and very pretty places to do it in Dubai! And because we’re a little bit instagram obsessed, we went on a hunt for some serious visual inspiration for that million dollar/caffeine shot. So with that, here are a few of our very favourite cafes which qualifiy for the perfect IG feed and the perfect mama hangout.
We’ve talked about our love for Boston Lane, Tribe and The Collective for quite a bit here on Sassy and for good reason! Not only is their coffee awesome, we’re major fangirls of the cosy vibes of this cafe (it feels like you’re sipping coffee in a bohemian backyard complete with mosaic floors and plenty of flowers). You know what else we love? The blush pink walls & personalised coffee cups – oh and the toasties (seriously yummy!!). Such a cute place to snap some piccies of your coffee, your kids or just the space itself.

As the weather’s getting warmer, there’s no time better than now to enjoy a family day out at The Yard in Al Khawaneej, a space which aims to connect the community and nature through cute surroundings including a garden and a pond. Homestead is a cosy restaurant and bakery with a lush setting (before heading in, capture a shot of the restaurant’s outdoors featuring an upcycled barn-like style) and beautiful ambience. We love the colours, the high ceilings and all that natural light – which all make for gorgeous pics mamas!

There’s nothing that helps an early start or a tricky day of whingey kids more than being surrounded by lots of lovely greenery while sipping on your cup of joe. The Roseleaf Café is a really sweet vintage style spot in the Dubai Garden Centre – with tables dotted about in a greenhouse and indoors too (doubles up as a perfect little spot to work from get your early morning Insta fix). The RAW coffee is delicious, the homemade cakes irresistible and the setting just lovely. A box of toys will keep any ankle biters occupied AND there are fish to go and see in the little aquarium just around the corner. We love.
