I prefer visiting independent cafes, but if there's one chain of coffee-stores that I actually enjoy, it's Gloria Jean's Coffees: the first Australian franchised coffee shop to open in the UAE... I like supporting Australian brands :-)
Their Mocca Chillers and Iced Cappuccinos (9 different flavours, mixing espresso with everything from chocolate flavouring to cookies & mint) are superb! Gloria Jean's also retails freshly roasted gourmet coffee beans in 24 varieties, such as Vanilla infused, German chocolate cake, hazelnut, decaffeinated, etc.
The cafe also serves an assortment of food; and their sandwiches, cakes, salads and pastries have greatly improved over the past few years...
TIP: If you do feel peckish, try one of their fresh crepes; Scrumptious! Choose whether your crepe should be sweet or savory, and then pick your toppings.
They have special children's menu, as well as a special summer promotion offering a free Mocha Chiller Promotions Card to every customer, as well as the all-year-around Frequent Sippers Club: Receive 1 free cup for every 10 cups.
To cut a long story short: I absolutely love meeting friends at Gloria Jean's, or simply running in and grabbing an Iced Cappucino to keep me cool whilst driving around in my car.
Staff are usually very friendly and funny. Shoppers visit Gloria Jean's for their great flavour-infused coffees and for a spot of people-watching, and to quote their slogan: "escape the daily grind"...
Opening Hours: 09:00am - 11:00pm.
Favorite Dish: Favourite drink: Regular Iced Cappucino (large, of course!) without whipped cream.
Favourite snack: Hot banana crepe with chocolate sauce... (gives you the energy to carry-on shopping... haha!)
large cappucino: Dhs 18.-
double chocolate muffin: Dhs 9.-
