Elli's Café, inspired by heartwarming Mediterranean foods and décor, located in the heart of the Golden Mile district on the famous palm-shaped island, Palm Jumeirah, will be open for Pesach for anyone spending Passover in Dubai. Centrally based in one of the most sought-after tourist destinations in Dubai, the Café will give easy access to hotels on the Golden Mile, and key tourist attractions of the Palm, including:
- The Pointe with its spectacular fountain shows, restaurants and concept stores
- Aquaventure one of the world’s largest waterparks holding a record number of rides some of which cannot be found anywhere else in the world!
- The iconic Atlantis Hotel and its majestic arches opening up onto the Gulf
- The View at The Palm with its glass-framed observation deck offering breathtaking city & gulf views
- The newly opened and stylish Nakheel Mall for shopaholics (free shuttle services available)
- West Beach to unwind and relax while taking in the beach
Connected to the mainland by a monorail that runs through Nakheel Mall and ends at Atlantis Waterpark, access to surrounding areas such as the Dubai Marina, Souk Madinat Jumeirah and the Mall of Emirates (Elli’s favourite mall) is easy! Additional activities include luxury yacht cruises and thrilling desert safaris with catering by Elli’s Kosher Kitchen.
Seders and Shabbat can be enjoyed at “Elli’s” in an intimate café setting overlooking the lush Al Itihad Park and its indigenous date palms. Seders will be self-led (there will not be communally led seders).
Café seating is limited to a maximum of 100 people. Reservations for seders and yom tov meals are essential. During the chol hamoed period, seating for breakfast, lunch and dinner is ‘first-come-first-serve’ basis.
If interested, join the seder wait list. The seder wait list is filling up quickly so hurry up and book your spot!
Then join us during the chol hamoed for breakfast, lunch and dinner throughout the week where children can run freely, or paint ceramics at the neighboring café. Galleria Golden Mile offers beauty salons, paddle courts, gyms and kiddie indoor soft play areas.
