The Surf Cafe Dubai

This beautiful café is conveniently nestled on the first floor of Jumeirah Beach Road’s busiest street (the lane ends into kite beach) making it the perfect hangout. This is a chilled spot that offers a fresh take on healthy eating.

Name: The Surf Cafe

What I ordered:
-The Café Breakfast: Choice of 2 eggs poached/ scrambled/ fried along with toasted rye bread, Dutch veal bacon, fresh chicken sausage, Portobello garlic mushroom, hash brown, cherry tomatoes on the vine and a glass of fresh juice. This platter is perfect and good enough for one hungry person. (Dhs80)

– Eggs benedict: A classic breakfast dish! English muffins with poached eggs, fresh spinach, veal bacon and Hollaindaise sauce. It was one of the best I’ve tried in the city! (Dhs45)

-The Pancakes: These two gluten free pancakes reduce your guilt by a great amount. I changed my topping to berries and also asked for some additional nutella, trust me its delicious and worth trying. (Dhs35)

-Dragon maki roll: Prawn tempura with Japanese mayonnaise, avocado and cucumber. It was good but the tempura wasn’t crisp as it should be. (Dhs45)

-Rib Eye: 300gms of Australian Rib Eye with chimichurri sauce and fries. Our server suggested the sauce but it wasn’t the best combination with the steak. A classic pepper sauce would have been the better. (Dhs90)


– Garlic Prawns: Pan seared prawns cooked in Olive Oil, garlic, parsley and lemon juice. It was more like prawns in a garlic butter sauce, a dish you could miss or try it if you’re in the mood for Mediterranean style prawns. (Dhs90)

-Goat Cheese & Rocket Salad: This was one of the best versions of the goat cheese salad I’ve tried in Dubai. The fresh figs and honey vinaigrette add an interesting twist to this dish. A must try! It was a part of the Chefs Special menu. (Dhs50)

-We tried these two juices and they were so fresh and tasty.
Super Orange: Fresh orange, apple, goji berry and pumpkin seeds
Fresh and Frozen: Fresh Orange, banana, strawberry, acai berry.


My experience:
-The breakfast dishes, goat cheese salad and gluten free pancakes are an absolute must try!
-Totally digging the new breakfast places in Dubai currently and this one is the latest addition to my list.
-I personally preferred their breakfast menu over lunch. The breakfast dishes were on point and so delicious. There are a lot of vegetarian options too.
-The place was buzzing even on a weekday, expect a lot of tourists and beach goers. It is a totally casual place with a surfer theme where you can turn up in your boardshorts and fit flops. Love the casual vibe and the amazing french windows with natural sunlight coming in.
– Most of the meals served here are quite healthy, as the meat and fish is either steamed or grilled and they also have a variety of salads and eggs.
– Their sea food is fresh and is kept on display which makes it easier to choose. Also they have a sushi bar near the entrance.

Service: The staff is friendly and they know everything about the dishes.

Bill: Amount mentioned next to the dishes ordered.
