Founded in 2003, Circle Cafe was inspired by its creators for their deep love of Authentic New York Bagels. It started out as a simple cafe serving plain authentic New York bagels and coffee yet as time passed by it became one of the most popular casual dining spot in Dubai.
The ambiance in every branch has that uniform feel and architecture. It has that white walls and bright and sunny feeling which are a perfect setup for breakfasts.
One thing to note about their menu is that they keep on changing it every now and then to fit the customer's needs. We were saddened when we found out that they no longer serve monster shakes but looking at the bright side means we don't have to deal with those unnecessary carbs and overwhelming sugar anymore. :'D
After looking at their menu and asking the chef itself for their recommendations, we wrapped up our orders with the following items:
The perfect morning drinks for me. Though I prefer it to be a lot more thick and rich. This seemed ok for a light drink.
CHIA BERRY ALMOND SMOOTHIE - Almonds, Mixed Berries, chia seeds, soy milk, vanilla, honey, and yogurt.
This drink proves you that being healthy doesn't need to sacrifice the taste. I love how tasty this drink was. The berries and vanilla were so good together plus the texture of almond and chia seed made my life a bit longer.
THE BIG BREAKFAST - 2 eggs, grilled portobello mushroom, avocado, halloumi cheese, baked beans, sauteed cherry tomatoes, and shredded bbq beef.
This has got to be the perfect breakfast treat. I'm sure that people from the west would die for this meal. You basically have everything that you need to jumpstart the day. Though personally, I didn't like how the beef was marinated.
AVOCADO ON TOAST - Your choice of Bagel sandwiched with smashed avocado and a touch of chili.
My love for avocado just got stronger when they serve me a dish that doesn't need words to describe why. Check out this dish and find out why you should always have avocado for breakfast. :D A must try.
SHA-SHA-SHAKSHOUKA - Baked Eggs in a delicious tomato, red pepper, and chili salsa.
This was my first time to try SHAKSHOUKA and I just love everything about it. I can't forgive myself for skipping out this dish every time because I thought it looked weird. The spicy and sweet tomato sauce was heavenly, especially when you dip the bagels with it.
PANCAKES - 6 stack of fluffy mini pancakes with your choice of the homemade blueberry preserve, Nutella, or maple syrup.
I never expected these minis to taste this good. These soft and fluffy pancakes are worth all the carbs.
MEXICAN CHICKEN SALAD - Chopped Chicken with a double avocado hit(fresh and guac'), cherry tomatoes, corn, black beans, edamame, tomato salsa, and Cajun-spiced bagel chips.
My love for Mexican food doesn't stop here. This Mexican-inspired salad is definitely a good treat for everyone. I would eat a salad every day for this.
SWEET POTATO ZAATAR FRIES - Perfectly deep fried sweet potato showered with zaatar.
Probably the best tasting sweet potato fries in the city. I love the crunchiness and taste of this. I highly recommend you to try this!
BEEF BURGER - The perfect beef patty with cheddar cheese, house pickles, tomato jam, onion jam, and mushroom bordelaise.
This was too normal of a burger for me. It didn't have that distinct taste/quality that would make me want to order again.
ICE CREAM SUNDAE with CHOCOLATE BROWNIE - Chocolate brownies and vanilla ice cream contained in a jar.
I love the right amount of sweetness in this dish. After enjoying that full meal. This sweet treat gives the feast a happy ending. :D
We loved spending the mornings here at Circle Cafe. With it's warm and serene ambiance, we can not come back and enjoy a calm and satisfying breakfast. Here was our overall Brunch experience here at Circle. Glad to have tried this cafe. It truly is a treasure in Dubai.
People who loves to eat are always the best people.
