There’s nothing better than a chilled breakfast at a chic spot in Dubai. One of our absolute favourites is The Grey, located on Al Wasl Road in Al Safa 1. The minimalistic and modern interior makes you feel instantly relaxed as you enter the space. However, with the best weather happening right now in Dubai, we recommend dining outside on the terrace. Start your weekend right by sipping on a cup of The Grey’s speciality coffee and indulging in their incredible dishes.

Dine & dazzle

A brand new culinary experience has opened at the luxurious hotel in JBR, the Address Beach Resort.
