Best for Families - Expert review of The Lime Tree Cafe

Possibly Dubai's favourite cafe and the maker of the city's favourite cake.

Something of a Dubai institution, the Lime Tree Cafe in Jumeirah is perhaps the city's favourite spot for a quick bite, a coffee and a natter with your friends. Serving healthy and freshly made dishes, this spot has been feeding the local expat community - include myself -  for years.  

Food and drink: 

Ranging from salads to sarnies to more lah-di-dah creations such as lavashes and fritatas, the Lime Tree's menu is generally excellent and almost always veering towards the heathy side of eating. 

Recommended dishes: 

The carrot cake is renowned across the UAE. According to urban myths, Sheikh Mohammed himself is a fan and has a regular order placed. 

Ambience: 

Relaxed and casual. There's an outdoors section both upstairs and downstairs, which gets very busy at weekends with Dubai-ites and during weekdays with gossiping Jumeirah Janes (our local ladies who lunch).  

Service: 

Excellent and friendly. Unlike most cafes in Dubai, you have to order at the counter, but it's generally then brought out as quick as a flash (although sometimes they forget to bring out milk for your tea).  

Location: 

Just off Jumeirah Beach Road and a few minutes from the public beach. As such, it's a popular spot for a pre or post-swim break (and turning up covered in sand isn't really a problem).  

Price advice: 

Most dishes costs between 20 and 40 dirhams.
