Our round-up of the best outdoor cafes in Dubai you should know about.

Outdoor seating is our top priority during the cooler weather in Dubai.  If you are on the search for a quick bite or then a cup of coffee (or tea), then check out a few of the lesser-known outdoor cafes in Dubai.  We certainly love hanging out at these spots and once you visit you will understand why.

Best Outdoor Cafes in Dubai:

The Espresso Lab
