I love the ambience of this cafe, much like Davis Jones cafes in Australia. Dark, edgy mix of chrome, glass and black tables. The coffee is good, menu varied with new monthly specials , juices fresh. You can buy delicious cheese, pasta and delicatessen foods to use at home. Jones should consider some staff service training - they need to... More

Decided to have dinner here with the family after trying the Dubai branch a couple of years ago. After spending a few days in Abu Dhabi, we were getting sick of all the unhealthy options in water parks etc. So this was a delight. The kids lunchbox is a lovely touch! Healthy and tasty. I went for the sea bass... More

We had breakfast there and enjoyed it. Portion size was just right. However, that's not the end of the story! They have a phenomenal selection of cheeses from all over the world. We were lucky enough to have the manager show us and we had a mini cheese tasting and of course ending up buying some! We also picked up... More

I've found a new all time favorite which combines healthy options, interesting offerings and servings which were exceptionally delicious. I was blown away by the Jones Burger featuring Waygu beef, without a doubt the best burger I've ever been served. Earlier this year I tried the Texas 2017 Best Burger in San Antonio, Texas, so thats saying something. My friends... More

Visited this place a few times before but never witnessed their jazz nights. Tried the wine and cheese promotion. A great Saturday night offer, which allows you to enjoy unlimited cheese with 3 glasses of house wine. Amazing atmosphere with live jazz, which is so rare here in the country of endless sands. Really enjoyed the time with you guys... More

I hadn't been in for a while until today and it wasn't at all how I remembered. Poor and slow customer service, actually verging on surly at the counter. Won't be rushing back.

I had been in this place a couple of time, i just love the options that they have for take away and healthy ones. I dont eat diary and this place has plenty options for a non boring breakfast. Perfectly recommended for a healthy start.

This is my local restaurant just round the corner from where I live. Its a good place, but I don't go very often because the menu is always the same. It hasn't changed in over a year. Once they had a promotion on for a month and the variety was excellent, then they went back to formula standard - burger,... More
