I had a couple of months off last year whilst I was waiting for a contract to materialise and I spent my mornings in this place.....The coffee is superb because Jones are fanatical about it, the breakfasts are tasty and made with quality, Deli style ingredients and it is always possible to have a fresh Danish pastry or dessert with a second cup of coffee!!

I'm so very excited that Jones sells some great gourmet truffle products! Their gourmet foods selection is limited, but the quality of is great. Most of their products are imported from Italy and France. I ended up buying honey infused with white truffle and it's heavenly. Cost: aed 135 which is expensive but worth it.

What a burger! Moist wagyu beef with all the toppings - yummy! If you have room for dessert - try the salted caramel tart - to die for...

Not allowing bookings for lunch speaks volume. This is Jones the Grocer. The wait is sometimes worth the effort but I make it a point to arrive early before the crowd. The Wagyu Burger is awesome while the Risotto comes second best. The food quality is just top notch. One of my absolute favourite place in Dubai.

Fabulous, casual yet elegant food in a lovely airy mod setting that feels as sophisticated as anything you'd find in London, New York or Sydney. Probably because it comes from Australia, where ironically Jones the Grocer is not nearly as successful. It's the non-hotel places like this, Pantry, The Archive and Pavilion Downtown that make Dubai exciting for me. As with Pantry, service can be a bit chaotic. In March, I had a broken wrist in a huge splint, so I asked for the chicken on my couscous salad to be thinly sliced by the chef. It arrived as a huge hunk of meat, was taken away with a sigh only to reappear 20 minutes later, cold. By that time my husband had finished his lunch. Not a great experience but will almost certainly return.

Their Cheese Room and desserts are to die for. Though, you can't even forget the food. Love everything on that menu. There isn't one thing that we weren't happy with, everytime we go. From their appetizers, to their salads, to their desserts. Each bite is a piece of heaven. Love this place, though, I wish it wasn't so far. They definitely need more locations. Perhaps somewhere downtown or beach road.

jones the grocer Neeru - Thank you! We may not always succeed but nice to read such a great review . We make everything in-house. Every dessert and every loaf of bread is baked fresh daily in the Dubai store and it is disappointing when we read poor reviews given how much effort goes into each and every item on our menu. Thank you once again!

Aussie ambiance, grocery like. Grassfed Sirloin was medium to well as ordered. Luckily the food was served all hot this time. They are creating an impression of slow service and cold food. Although presentation and the publicity was over rated - yet its still a must-try ( a must try your luck!). I do not agree that its easy to find! I got lost when coming here. Remember Exit 41 - if you are bound trade centre to Abu Dhabi on Sheikh Zayed Road! Btw a bit pricey too.

Like other reviewers noted, Jones has a great ambience & setting. What I like about them – coffee (amazing), deserts (amazing carrot cake), ambience (amazing).
For vegetarians, options are limited (2 sandwiches, 1 soup, 1 salad) but those few options are pretty good. They made me a customized pasta last time but charged me the same price they charge if it came with the prawns (per the menu)… so I didn’t feel too great paying 64 bucks for a tomato sauce pasta.

Otherwise, a perfect place to catch up for coffee in my opinion!

The nicest thing about this place is the setting. Its easy to find, park and the place itself with high ceilings is quite attractive. Personally in terms of the food and service I was less impressed. Sloppy service and there was nothing memorable about the dishes in my opinion. Will probably go back just because it is a convenient meeting place. I think better for a coffee and a desert place than lunch.

Had to wait 30mins for a table on a Saturday lunchtime but I guess that is to be expected when the food is so yummy. Great for a coffee and girly catch up with friends.

trendy cafe with urban feeling. A bit overrated and overcrowded. You bring home a memory of smelling clothes of fry.

wish there was more of them and an outdoor seating.

Check out the one in Abu dhabi. much better but then of course the abu dhabi experience...zzzz

lousy!!! just a lot of talking and good PR! service is terrible and getting worse...so careless! i've been there 6 times since the opening and always seemed worse :( ...plus, we saw the smoke from ktchn and a chef with finger in his nose! c'mooooon! if that guy was a manager (not sure, i so regret not using my camera!) seemed way far from managing and zero on grooming...it is also way too priceyyyy! i always went back because of reading the articles thinking something's changed... so i believe it's just PR coz otherwise why reality is so sad there?!?!?

I always have mixed feelings about the place. Some days the food is yummy and comforting. Other days it's lackluster and drab. The prices are always high.

Have eaten here on more then a few occasions and have never been disappointed with the food nor the service. Stopped for dinner with the family tonight and as expected all was great...except for the tomato soup.

Wanted to try something new but also wanted to eat light. Ordered tomato soup and a pastrami gruyere sandwich. The sandwich (and accompanying salad) were awesome. The soup however was a big let down. It tasted more like minestrone and the croutons were more like big soggy pieces of brown bread. The only thing I did enjoy was the goat cheese, which was what interested me in trying the soup in the first place.

My wife had the mushroom risotto which she scarfed down. Here only comment was that there were too many mushrooms as she got full before she could finish them all.

The kids had the linguine in tomato sauce. If my one year old was better at feeding herself she may have finished the whole thing on her own. Unfortunately a fair amount of it ended up on the floor. It came with garlic bread which, had it been an option, I would have ordered as a main course on its own. It was that good.

We had a longer then usual wait to order in the beginning but other then that the service was attentive and friendly as usual.

Overall it was another great experience. I would have given it a 5 star rating if it wasn't for the soup.

jones the grocer thank you for your review. Just so you know we have changed our soups and we've reverted back to the pumpkin soup and the lentil soup after numerous customer requests for their return.
