Where: MYOCUM, Wasl Road

Why: It’s Aussie co-founders Khalid bin Hadher and Pascal Moser bring their passion for coffee and fresh food to this cool contemporary, urban hang-out. It’s also a winner when it comes to vegan options.

Try: The Vegan Brekkie Burrito. BBQ beans, scrambled tofu, chipotle cashew cream cheese, chilli lime kale, portobello mushrooms and avocado and salsa verde all wrapped up in a fresh tortilla is why we get out of bed on a weekend.

Where:  Surf House

Why: Scott Chambers a graduate of Surf Science and founded Surf Café in 2005 from an overwhelming amount of expats getting in touch to tell him they had a love for the sport just as did he. The vibe is chilled and could actually make you forget your in Dubai, think LA waves. The food is pretty rad too, we recommend the Gluten and Vegan waffles (yummy).

Try: After surfing, paddle boarding or yoga, tuck into Avo & Eggs or an Acai Bowl.

Where: Boston Lane Café

Why: Hidden away in an Italian-themed courtyard just opposite Alserkal Avenue is cute café that serves up quirky food and fresh juices with a side of bohemian interiors and even home plants. It might not be the biggest breakfast spot in town, but it packs a punch with flavours and you can also do a bit of shopping while waiting for your pancakes.

Try: Rainbow Cheese Toastie – do I need to say more?
