Ideal for… a really lovely lunch in Jumeirah 1
Restaurant name and location: Society Cafe & Lounge, Jumeirah Beach Road
Cuisine: Cafe – European
Atmosphere: Quiet, and relaxed
What they say: A space where every person and ingredient has a place and purpose, Society Cafe & Lounge is an engine of bursting flavours inspired by the cultural culinary landscape of the time. A menu boasting gourmet favourites presented in a casual setting, Society Cafe & Lounge promises a culinary treat regardless of palette or time of day. A homegrown concept brought to life by a diverse group of personalities driven by a common vision, Society Cafe & Lounge pays homage to the city that it sits in – Dubai
What to order:
-Beetroot salad: fresh, comes with candied pecans and feta – yum.
-Mushroom croquettes: My favorite starter – comes with truffle aioli and pink pepper.
-Lobster roll: a little different to the usual lobster roll but still good nonetheless – comes with sweet potato fries.
-Mushroom rigatoni: delicious, but would definitely be better if it was more el dente.
-Cereal Tres leches (a must order, and probably their most med dessert)
Service: The service could’ve been a little better, but otherwise the staff were super sweet.
What I loved:
-The interiors: Industrial, minimal with lots of natural light. I’m a fan.
-Their breakfast menu looks really good, so I definitely have to come back for that! They also serve pastries and freshly baked cakes – I recommend the almond croissant with your coffee.
-Their coffee and tea selection: wish more restaurants focused on this. They serve Blacksmith coffee.
