Carrying the essence of grandma’s worldwide through their dishes, Brunch & Cake stems from the belief in offering only the best to its customers just as your grandma would do.

Founded in 2010, first as a coffee shop and then expanded into a brunch spot in 2012, the joint first came to Dubai in 2019 to ‘capture the hearts of people' in the Middle-east, just as it’d done in Barcelona.

As the name suggests, Brunch & Cake offers sweet treats for a sweet morning. Aside from making it the perfect spot for sweet tooths with its items such as Peaches & Cream Pancakes, the joint also houses a wide range of savoury dishes including but not limited to Eggs Carbonara, Breakfast Calzones, and Croque Madame.

Their variety of drinks also makes the neutral-toned space an interesting breakfast stop for those of us who’d rather have a drink than something solid at 9 am in the morning.

Oh, and for the Instagrammers in us, the Bohemian aesthetic of the place is sure to get you some stunning shots.
