With the help of www.timeoutdubai.com we have rounded up the strongest browsing spots in Dubai, all in, around or a short hop from Dubai World Trade Centre. You can catch up on email, browse and enjoy some great food.

We’ve rated each venue on the vibe, the people and the food served, as well as its unique selling points. So we suggest you give yourself a stretch after that GITEX day and set out for a view of Dubai Fountain, a lush green garden, or a host of other free Wi-Fi zones.


Baker & Spice

The vibe: This bright, light-filled venue is lined with handsome pale-wood furniture, and tempts the taste buds with beautifully displayed salads, cakes and preserves.

The people: It’s populated by the tanned, toned, annoyingly healthy Marina set.

What to order with your Wi-Fi: Where to start? We’re big fans of the breakfasts, so would recommend the blueberry pancake and fantastic shakshouka.

Why go? If you live in or around the Marina, this is as good a spot as any to come for breakfast and/or a light lunch.

Bo House Café

The vibe: A faux-bohemian venue with a faux-psychedelic hippy atmosphere. Even the password for the free Wi-Fi fits in with the theme, though you’ll have to pay a visit to find out what it is.

The people: A multicultural melting pot.

What to order with your: Wi-Fi Grab a sandwich – the grilled salmon or steak options are real treats – or go for a full meal.

Why go? It’s a great place to relax, have a bite to eat and browse the web, and the downstairs area is surprisingly quiet if you have serious work to do.
