Since monster shakes have taken the food scene here by storm, Dubai residents cannot not get enough – and much like everything else in Dubai, cafes and restaurants have taken monster shakes to the next level. However, as real as the hype is, there are only a few places in town where you can grab a bite and sip on one of these delectable modern-day treats. Check out our top picks to enjoy monster shakes – and fulfill your craziest sweet-tooth daydreams – when in Dubai.

1. The Sum of Us

Cafe, Continental

Hidden away in the corner of the Sheraton Hotel on Sheikh Zayed Road, The Sum of Us has introduced some of the most fun monster shakes in town. Anything from bananas to cakes, to donuts, and more – if you can eat it, chances are they’re making it into a shake. As they only offer these beauties on weekends their scope of creativity really goes a long way, with new flavors and shakes making their debut each week.

2. Fume


One of the first eateries in the city to introduce the monster shakes, Fume goes all-out, all the time. With several branches open, they’ve got the whole city covered when it comes to making a meal-of-shake. They don’t hold back on the sweetness or making your biggest dessert fantasies come true. It’s highly recommended to skip a meal and just go for dessert when Fume is on your list of activities for the day.

Fume, Mohammed Bin Rashid Boulevard, Dubai, U.A.E. +971 4 456 8784

3. Black Lion

Pub, Pub Grub

This may be possibly the last place you’d expect to find a monster shake on the menu, but The Black Lion Pub’s chefs have thankfully joined in on this thriving food trend. Located in the H Hotel on Sheikh Zayed Road, this is possibly the only place where you can have a beer or a shake or both. This street food concept offers a more classic and down-to-earth monster shakes but they keep the quality at its finest.

4. Ice Lab

Ice Lab

Located around the corner from Al Qouz Pond Park, this little café serves their signature monster shakes in Nutella jars. The Californian ice cream shop serves made-to-order nitrogen ice cream, and the treats on top are just as fresh. Their monster and mini-monster shakes feature oh-so-sweet toppings.

Circle Café

At first glance Circle Café’s interior will give off a sophisticated and chic look, but don’t be fooled, their secret menu has all the crazy desserts and monster shakes you can think of. With several branches around the city, the café takes its guests by surprise when their secret menu items come around. Make sure you ask for the Absolutely Monster Shake and get ready to share.
