Happy Avocado Day everyone! Now that our favourite holiday is finally here, we can’t wait to celebrate with some totally Instagrammable avocado on toast!
We’ve scoured Dubai for the best avo on toast, and these are hands down our top five picks:
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), this avocado crostini is going to wow your tastebuds. The toasted crostini is topped with homemade macadamia sauce, guacamole, thin cucumber slices and sprouts.
Not only is it delicious, but you’ll feel better knowing that all the nutritious ingredients are sourced from local organic farms.

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 salmon and cream cheese bagel too – you can thank us later.

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 on toast comes with three poached 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 toasted rye bread is topped with olive tapenade, sliced avocado, rocket leaved and pomegranate seeds, which gives both a sweet and savoury taste.

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.

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 15.
