From salads and sandwiches to lamb chops and gyros, it is all crave-worthy.

Put down last night’s leftovers because we have just reviewed a lovely new café in Dubai. No matter what you have planned for the day-from sitting at your desk to running errands, Refresh is the place to make a quick stop for an affordable and delicious (also good for you) lunch.

This homegrown gem is tucked away in the heart of DIFC and is absolutely buzzing at lunchtime. The extensive menu offers something for both meat-lovers and vegetarians. It is filled with everything from the colorful kale energy salad (42 AED) to delicate chicken quinoa risotto (52 AED).

We saved ourselves the impossible task of picking a dish and let the friendly server help us out. Upon recommendation (and inspired by the tables around us), we decided upon the Greek souvlaki platter (56 AED). The moreish dish was an absolute winner. Melt-in-the-mouth beef tenderloin and perfectly seasoned chicken served with piping hot pita bread, tangy tzatziki sauce and thick cut fries. You might need an afternoon siesta after this dish but it is totally worth it.

We also tried the seared crispy seabass (83 AED), served with spinach and organic kale wild rice and a dash of fresh lemon. It was a light and flavorful plate of fresh ingredients.

Refresh Delux Café is the ideal spot to stop at when you want to grab a quick bite during a hectic day or then to add some motivation to get through a sluggish morning.

Oh, and the free valet for the first three hours is an added bonus.
