Restaurant Review: Breakfast at Fraiche
With so many food options in Dubai it can be hard to find the right place, but we think we have.
Hidden in Jumeirah Lake Towers, Cluster Y is Fraiche Cafe & Bistro. This little gem of a place had everything that I wanted – attentive staff, peace and quiet and good food. Word had already spread that the dinner options at Fraiche were good, so I decided to try out their 'Craft Your Own Breakfast' option instead. Arriving at 9.30am I was escorted to my booth by the helpful waitress and felt right at home in the relaxed setting.
After ordering my mandatory cup of coffee and a refreshing orange juice I wandered over to the counter to peruse the breakfast selection. Croissants, pain au chocolat, porridge, pancakes and cereal didn't really do the trick for me, but thankfully there was another option on the menu that I couldn't resist – Eggs Benedict.
Not only did my spinach, salmon and hollandaise sauce taste irresistibly good, it was cooked up in a few short minutes. The serving was also big enough for possibly two people to enjoy although I didn't have any complaints eating it all by myself.
Fraiche is now officially my favourite breakfast hangout in Dubai... for now.
