It’s the dish that switched up all our breakfast games and added green to our ‘gram. We’ve scoured Dubai for the best avo’ on toast, and these are hands down our top five picks, so take a note and treat yourself to a colourful weekend breakfast.
Comptoir 102 is one of Dubai’s most hipster healthy cafes, serving sugar-free, dairy-free, raw, vegan and gluten-free options. The only set back – it’s quite pricey.
But if you’re willing to splurge a little (ok, maybe a lot), the Avocado Club is going to wow your tastebuds. The toasted bread is topped with guacamole sliced in miso and topped with two poached eggs, if you’re doing dairy.
Not only is it delicious, but you’ll feel better knowing that all the nutritious ingredients are sourced from local organic farms.
AED 65. Comptoir 102, Jumeirah 1. 8am-9pm. comptoir102.com
Although Cafe Rider is essentially a custom motorbike shop, we are so glad it serves coffee and food. Affordable and tasty – we absolutely love its all-day breakfast menu.
We order the crushed avocado, which is diced cubes of Mexican avocado served on a toasted slice of country loaf, topped with feta cheese, cherry tomatoes and mixed greens. So fresh, and so so good.
Besides the avo’ on toast, you must try the Scottish smoked salmon and cream cheese bagel too – you can thank us later.
AED 33.60. Cafe Rider, Al Quoz. 8am-8pm (Friday closes 5pm). caferider.com
The Surf Cafe
Situated just a few minutes away from the beach, The Surf Cafe is a great spot to enjoy a big healthy breakfast.
This avocado bagel comes with fried free-range eggs, but if you’re not a fan, you can replace it with extra avocado – WIN!
What we love the most is the mix of flavours – the bagel is topped with homemade tomato chutney, served with a side of sweet potato fries and siracha mayonnaise.

The simplest of them all, Circle Cafe lets you personalise your avocado on toast according to your preferences.
The smashed avocado is served on your choice of bread, from a wrap to sourdough toast to a selection of bagels, with a side of leafy greens. You can top it off with lemon juice, or spice it up with some green chillies – or both, whatever floats your boat.
You can also add on extras like mushrooms, seeds, eggs, extra avo, but at an additional charge.
AED 45. Circle Cafe, multiple locations, including Studio City, where it’s open 7am-9.30pm. circle-cafe.com
If you haven’t tried it yet, the smashed avocado at Common Grounds should be next on everyone’s list. This is hands down the best avo on toast you will find at Mall of the Emirates.
The soy and linseed toast is spread with a layer of ricotta, topped with smashed avocado, and a touch of lemon, sea salt, coriander and chilli flakes – we’re hungry just thinking about it.
The dish is perfect as it is, but if you need some protein you can add poached eggs for an extra AED 16.
AED 52. Common Grounds, Mall of the Emirates (Level 2). 8am-10pm daily.
