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.
The carrot cake is renowned across the UAE. According to urban myths, Sheikh Mohammed himself is a fan and has a regular order placed.
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).
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).
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).
Most dishes costs between 20 and 40 dirhams.
