Caffeine addicts should make a beeline for Spill the Bean, an independent speciality coffee shop that encourages customers to kick back over a decent coffee and the selection of savouries and homemade pastries (sugar-free, gluten-free and vegan options all available). The coffee menu, as expected, is lengthy, with the local variations, like cardamom Turkish coffee and the option of camel milk, also available. Little ones are kept entertained in the adjoining kid's play area, which is equipped with a mini gym, family-friendly books, toys and games.
Jumeirah includes the stretch of coastline, beaches and suburbs in front of Jumeirah Beach Road, which divides the city from the Arabian Gulf. Given the lack of identifiable street names and numbers, those taking taxis will find it easiest to use landmarks to identify destinations, with Wild Wadi Waterpark, the Burj Al Arab and Madinat Jumeirah most commonly referenced.
