Default Low-key Breakfast outdoors for a group +kids

can anyone suggest a nice place to have a group meetup for about 20 people (+kids) for a breakfast in Dubai

Low-key, Outdoors might be better for kids.

Am thinking one of the hotels should do this, but I'm at a loss to find one.

Go to Pauls at jbr, get there early and take up all the seats. Then piss yourself watching the Lebs rock up about 10am and demand a table and shouting "Do you know who I am?"

we used to go to Creek Park early on Fridays- there's nobody there early on, all brought food and played cricket / football / softball then buggered off towards lunchtime as the hoardes arrived

This is a good shout.

Other option is Safa - do the same, it's perfect weather now. Just take brekkie

a park might be a good idea.

The default is More cafe, long table

The park that runs through the Green Community is fantastic. Bit of a trek though.

Otherwise - what about jumeirah beach park? Has nice tables there and the kids can dig which the adults snack.

Either a park as suggested (stop at a lebanese bakery on the way to pick up some freshly baked things!!) otherwise Boardwalk is lovely for breakfast, decking over the creek and lovely to watch the boats etc!

exactly, there will be about 6 kids, and no chance chasing them around the waters edge.

It seems the Park is the best tip, so that's what we are going with.
Safa park for a bbq and a bit of space to let the kids wear themselves out.
