Crumbs Elysee is a spacious and airy café-cum-bakery. You can choose to sit outside, but during the cooler months the doors are often open, meaning you’ll get to enjoy the al fresco experience wherever you sit. If you wind up here in the morning, then the breakfasts won’t disappoint. Both the Early Bird and The Big Breakfast hit the mark, and both are generous in portions. The Crumbs Bread Basket is another highlight – it basically gives you the chance to sample miniature versions of what’s on offer at the bakers. If you have kids in tow, then Crumbs Elysee provides the perfect setting. The kids’ menu doubles up as a colouring book, and their food will arrive first. Service is also speedy and efficient, with an obvious focus on patrons dining with kids; you’ll likely see many families in attendance. Your wallet will be happy with the experience, too.
Open daily 6am-8pm. Al Thanya Street, Sheikh Zayed Road, (04 346 8899).
