New Café Bateel, Dubai

Building 2 (South)
United Arab Emirates
Tel: 971 4 370 0404's insider take:

Launched by Saudi Arabia's gourmet date company, Café Bateel is a casual breakfast, lunch, and dinner spot with branches across the city (including the Dubai Mall and Dubai Marina). Opt for the Bateel at the Dubai International Financial Center, which has an outdoor terrace and is a good place to recharge after a tour of the art galleries there. Omelets come with date-bread toast, pastas, and salads with date-balsamic vinaigrette, and dates replace or complement chocolate in exquisitely constructed Opera cakes, Sacher tortes, and pear tartes. You can drink alcohol-free date cider or sample the date variety degustation—Barjeel's orange-peel-stuffed dates are particularly delicious—with a cappuccino.—Susan Hack
