A friend had suggested ‘this new place in Jumeirah Islands Clubhouse’ for breakfast. I remember seeing Isola on socials, and it had always been on the to-go-list. Good time, seeing that the weather is still *thankfully* quite cool, or actually very cold and windy these daysearly Feb 2022. Off I went on a school day to meet her and another, 9:30am in the morning, the little boy in tow.
12 minutes from our place, there we were at the Jumeirah Islands Clubhouse. I had forgotten how beautiful it was there. The last time we were there, it was summertime – and we had their brunch with friends and stayed for pool using our Privilee membership. It has since been refurbished and boy did they do a good job with the venue. Brand spanking new, Isola taking over the main area, and a new gastropub called Joe’s Backyard above the gym.
Look at the view from the bridge.
And here you go – Jumeirah Islands Clubhouse.
There was a large group of ladies at the outdoor terrace, and probably two other tables occupied. No kids in sight, just my little boy with me. Nice and quiet, and so beautiful.
Here’s the view from the terrace where we sat. And it’s just not very far from the urban jungle of where we live in Marina.
For my second breakfast of the day, I went with good ol’ pancakes. For 45 AED, it was actually really good – lemon and ricotta blueberry, with maple syrup on the side. My friend had the same, and the other tea with a chocolate croissant (21 AED)

Service was okay, considering it wasn’t so busy when we were there. I would very happily return again for breakfast, or to see what else they have to offer for lunch or dinner. Maybe ladies night?
With regards to the ambience and the view – it reminded me a little of The Farm. I know it’s different – one is very green, but it was just the overall feeling of it being so not Dubai. The ‘river’ flowing through, the rocks, the birds, the greenery. Look a bit harder and you will see the skyscrapers of JLT beyond and you realise, you are not so far away from home.
Did I also mention they have a playground? It’s still at the same spot but it’s completely new, now called ‘Treehouse’. No, you cannot see your little ones from where you sit, so you will have to go with the very small toddlers.
Any playground is better than none for us 🙂
See you guys very soon.
I’ll be back to try out your food, and see how you guys are when you are busy 😉
PS – They are pretty slow in replying emails (never received any responses for the one I sent). If you need any info – just give them a call and they’re very helpful over the phone and whatsapp. Thanks 🙂
