The Surf Cafe - Go for the surfers... or the banana pancakes!

surf cafe

In a nutshell

Located right next to the Surf House, you can't expect but to find a bunch of hip people at the Surf Cafe, it's probably one of the places in Dubai with the highest concentration of good looking people. Besides these good looking people, the Surf Cafe offers a very laid back atmosphere and some really nice brunch food. 

*This review is purely about their brunch menu as I haven't tried their lunch menu yet. Stay tuned. 

the mood

There's definitely a surf theme consistently maintained from the outside of the building all the way inside. You have huge surfboards hanging on the walls, floor to ceiling glass and a great mix of low tables, high tables and bar seats. Very laid back vibe overall.  

the food

Again, this review is purely about the brunch menu. Although the portions are a bit small, everything is very well done, there's no edge or twist to anything they serve, but the goodness is in the simplicity. Highlights include: 
- Acai berry bowl
- Salmon cream cheese bagel
- Any type of eggs
- Banana pancakes (highlight!) 

the damage

AED 150 - 300
