It’s that time of the week again – time to make plans for the weekend.

While you may have many things on your bucket list to do around Dubai given lockdown restrictions were recently lifted (if so, check out our weekend guide), brunch should always be on the cards.

Of course, all establishments are reopening with social distancing measures in place, and it’s table service all the way as buffets are still banned. Furthermore, there’s only four people allowed per table and you can only stay at one venue for three hours.

With that, here’s five brunch spots to check out this weekend.

Summersalt, Jumeirah Al Naseem

Jumeirah Group knows how to do brunch, and Summersalt is one of our favourites for its enviable beach location and Instagrammable view of the Burj Al Arab. Offering a customised seasonal menu, dig into a Truffle Pizzetta or refreshing Watermelon and Feta Cheese Salad before moving on to a series of main courses. Don’t skip dessert, the Warm Flourless Chocolate Mousse is too good to miss. Prices start at Dhs395 for soft drinks, up to Dhs495 for cocktails and spirits.
