While Dubai's food scene is not often associated with local ingredients, Baker & Spice breaks the norm. The European-inspired eatery dishes out everything from spaghetti and meatballs to burgers with 'chunky chips,' but uses organic and locally-grown items—most of which they obtain at the Friday Farmers' Market on the Terrace at Jumeirah Emirates Towers ballroom gardens—whenever possible. One don't miss item: the eatery's freshly baked soda bread made with date syrup.
Though Baker & Spice has multiple locations throughout the emirate our favorite is at Souk Al Bahar, which offers a front row seat to the Dubai Fountain Show.

Dubai's Best Cafes
If a café just isn’t a café without fresh baked bread and a warm, welcoming décor, then it’s no wonder Baker & Spice was voted one of the best in Dubai. Their eclectic menu of seasonal dishes is locally sourced from sustainable farms for guilt free tastiness. For more of a funky, local vibe, try Klayya Bakery & Sweets in Al Barsha Mall where an Emirati breakfast of chebab (fluffy pancakes with a hint of saffron) and a glass of karak (tea with milk and spices) is great way to get a taste of the Emirates over breakfast. If tasting the local fare only whets the appetite for more, The Farm offers a luxurious garden setting in which to kick back with Emiratis and chow down on Thai and French cuisine. Hammocks, teas and coffee anyone? Al Barari Villas.
