Shakespeare and Co is a great cafe when visiting Dubai Marina. Located in the marina mall, it is a nice alternative to the food court. This has become one of our favorite breakfast spots and is a great alternative to the crows you're going to find at our other spots (Eggspectations down on the beach). you can sit outside at...

Shakespeare and Co. is one of the most successful F&B franchises to have been conceived and developed in the UAE. It’s a very well-executed Lebanese take on the European café-bistro, be it in Shakespearean drag.
