The chintzy Edwardian style may seem a bit out of place but this UAE chain restaurant is an Emirati firm favourite for its big breakfast menu that jumps from almond and caramel crêpes to full English (with beef bacon) and shopping snacks of sandwiches and stuffed saj (flatbread). For mains on the novella-length menu, the pizzas are the pick of the bunch.
