Cafes and Restaurants.

One of Dubai’s most sought for lifestyle destinations awaits.

DIFC offers a wide variety of cafés and restaurants, catering to different tastes and preferences. You can find both local and international coffee chains, as well as casual and upscale dining options.

Home-grown cafés operate next to global coffee chains, while dining options range from casual and convenient to distinguished and award-winning fine dining.

DIFC caters to the diverse preferences of professionals working in the Centre, as well as to the many daily visitors and residents.

This expansive choice is mirrored by an equally varied range of locations and backdrops. The Centre’s architecture is designed to allow enjoyment of the outdoors during Dubai’s cooler weather and to provide airy, sun-lit and air-conditioned settings during the warmer months.

Many cafés and restaurants already take advantage of this architecture and landscaping, with prominent areas including the Balcony, Gate Avenue, Gate Village and Marble Walk.
