Pastries. That’s the first thing you should order from The Lighthouse’s breakfast menu. Trust us, you won’t regret it.
On our trip to one of Dubai Design District’s favourite hangout spots, we tried the moist and moreish cinnamon roll and the fruit Danish. Both are big enough to share, but it’s unlikely that you will want to. Yes, they’re that good.
It’s the perfect start to our morning at the restaurant who’s reputation is quickly growing. The light and airy space, with chilled tunes and friendly staff is the perfect way to clear that fuzzy morning brain.
What doubles as a shop that sells Aesop products and the like, The Lighthouse restaurant has a packed menu for morning, noon or night that contains something for everyone. Just like those delicious pastries we mentioned.
Onwards to the main part of breakfast and we plump for that healthy breakfast staple of avocado on toast and the somewhat extravagant scrambled eggs with truffle.
The Lighthouse’s spin on the avo toast is that you can have it with your choice of eggs. So as well as the tasty Campaillou bread, labneh and cranberry, you can mix things up and fried, scrambled or poached perched on top. We don’t like to break tradition, so opt for the latter.
What’s obvious upon every mouthful is the care and attention that The Lighthouse puts into its dishes. There’s no one ingredient jockeying for attention on the rustic bread. In fact, it all comes together brilliantly.
The avocado toast is a winner, so what of the scrambled eggs and truffle?
