The Lunch Break Choice of the Week is Circle Cafe, in Dubai Media City. This eclectic cafe offers fresh, tasty, & healthy food that is always served quickly. In comparison to other restaurants & cafes in the area, Circle tends to have a more quiet and relaxing environment. Don’t get me wrong, it does get full, but not in a loud, stressful way.
They recently refurbished their interior decor and outdoor patio, giving the cafe a more comfy, fresh, and simple look. The indoor section welcomes sunlight through its panoramic windows (which is definitely refreshing during lunch time), and has a capacity of 11 tables (~4-5 people/table). The patio has a nice view of the media city lake and has been equipped with fans to make the weather more bearable outside.
The menu is set up uniquely resembling a newspaper with interesting food related articles on the cover page. Circle offers a variety of bagels & wraps/ salads/ & main dishes – all of which are topped with a secret ingredient: Creativity.
The Falafel & Italian Chicken Almond Salads shared below are the regular sized salads. They also offer a larger portion.
Their desserts – Chocolate Cake & Lazy Cake – are to die for!
Last but not least, one thing I truly value, and look for in restaurants & cafes are Loyalty Cards. If you eat out all the time, these cards will offer you a little savings here and there 🙂 Mechanics: After a certain number of purchases (*/stamps*), you get something for free!
In Circle’s Case: After 10 meals, you get your 11th meal for free.
