20 top breakfasts in Abu Dhabi4 Comments 21 August 2012
Jones the Grocer
With its esteemed reputation, you would expect Jones to serve up a decent breakfast and it doesn’t disappoint. The menu pulls out all thestops and has plenty of choices for you super-healthy types, serving up porridge, muesli and fruit salad. But those who don’t worry about terms such as ‘high cholesterol’ or ‘weight gain’ can enjoy a hearty breakfast instead. Try the omelette with tasty cheese oozing out and order a side of tomatoes and some fried garlic mushrooms. Jones is always busy in the morning, mostly bustling with high-powered business types trying to wolf down the most important meal of the day without dripping grease on their ties, or expat families on the weekends. The coffee is spot on, perfectly treading the fine line between smooth and bitter and one cup is simply not enough. A great early morning meal can be had at this chic eatery.
What’s it good for? The simple things, so keep your order that way. The bread is delicious; go for the freshly-baked bread basket which comes with artisan butter and then order lots of extras. The coffee is also worth some of your dirhams and don’t leave without picking up some pastries, macarons or even crème brûlée to chomp on later.
Cost: With drinks it’ll set you back around Dhs70-Dhs100.
Breakfast is served until 11.30am on weekdays and 3pm on weekends. Jones the Grocer at Khalidiyah (02 639 5883) and Al Muroor (02 639 5883).
