3. Intersect by Lexus has to be a spot on your breakfast hit list!
Looking for a unique spot for breakfast? Intersect By Lexus, in the heart of DIFC, is a concept store that oozes casual style. There are only 2 others like it in the world, a design lover’s dream with great coffee, it’s the perfect spot for a chill morning.
The store is modelled on Lexus, and originally a way for people to learn more about the brand. The leather on the seats is the very same as the leather you find in Lexus cars, the eye-catching wall design is also modelled on car features while the rolling white roof represents the rolling dunes of Dubai. A conversation starter at every corner, the unique interiors are one reason to go, but the breakfast is another. A compact menu, with eggs the order of the day, or choose the moreish homemade paratha, followed by a couple of sweet dishes to finish.
Enjoy some liquid boosts in the form of detox smoothies and go on your merry way for the week!
Where? DIFC, Gate Village 7
When? Sunday to Thursday 8am to 6pm. *Not open on weekends, sorry folks!
