The majority of people visit the Emirates Palace for afternoon tea, reservation is needed before hand. Don't forget to be appropriately dressed with no shorts as they may turn you away.

we tried to visit Emirates Palace for breakfast but was not allowed past the first checkpoint as we did not have a booking. Lesson learnt - BOOK in advance

We went just for a wonder around and it was fine, yes you can only go in certain areas but was fine and adequate.

I have been multiple times for gold-leaf cappuccinos and coffee and NEVER. EVER booked. We walk in and go sit down. However we have usually been mid-morning after the breakfast rush is over!

I thought the gold-leaf cappuccino was overrated.

"High tea is served daily from 02:00 pm until 06:00 pm. Due to the high demand kindly reserve your table in advance. Walk-in guests will be welcomed and served on a first come first serve basis and will be charged a ‘minimum spend fee’ of AED 100 per person."

It's about 50 AED. A standard (or a camel milk) cappuccino is around 35. It's definitely worth it as a one-time experience :-). Have never been asked for a minimum spend either.

I booked at emirates palace at le cafe and was also told there is minimum charge of 100 AED per person when using the a la carte menu for any of the venues. This charge doesn't apply to afternoon tea because the afternoon tea is priced at 240 or 260 AED per person depending on which you choose..

I will be there the last week of June, if you happen to travel after me, then you can contact me to ask if I actually ended up spending 300 AED (we are three people) or if they are more lenient!
