Breakfasting in a Shady Courtyard in Dubai, United Arab Emirates
In the old Bastakiya Quarter, near Dubai Museum and the lively creek, is Basta Art Café. Located in the shady, tree-lined courtyard of an old wind tower, it’s a peaceful, child-friendly oasis in busy Dubai. Basta serves up tasty sandwiches, big salads and ample breakfasts. Their fabulous Arabic breakfast is comprised of tea, white cheese, greens, tomatoes, Arabic bread, honey, and a delicious, slightly salty yogurt. The little ones might prefer pancakes with strawberries. Just as scrumptious any time of day, are the creative teas and juices. The lime and mint juice looks—and tastes—like a non-alcoholic mojito. While waiting for your food, browse the paintings, handicraft, jewelery and books for sale. Or just lounge on one of the cushy sofas.
