Madeleine in The Dubai Mall
Madeleine Café is located at the Fashion Avenue of The Dubai Mall and this is a French-themed restaurant that offers a venue for family or friends to have a relaxing meal after shopping inside the mall outlets. This is also a good place for you to catch up on your books while sipping coffee or tea.

Newspapers and magazines are available so you can really take time to enjoy your food and the ambiance inside this café and bakery. This is a good place to dine when you want a break from the crowd inside the mall. You can have your own quiet corner and relax for awhile.

Madeleine’s Outdoor Terrace
The amazing views of The Dubai Fountain and Burj Khalifa from the outdoor terrace creates an ideal backdrop to indulge in traditional French cuisine that includes gourmet items and pastries as well as some of the finest hot and cold beverages.

Option to Dine Outside – Best to do so during Winter season!
Management and staff informed us that the place (especially the terrace) gets busy early in the evening till night because of the gorgeous view you can get from the resto. We were lucky enough to have witnessed one of the fountain shows in the afternoon with a clear view of the lake.
True enough as well, I noticed a couple of tourists ordering coffee while waiting for the fountain show to start. Plenty of tourists come to this café because it offers one of the best views (if not the best) outside.
