Located near high-end designer shops including Calvin Klein and Ralph Lauren, this coffee house takes its blends seriously. Stick to your standard morning mocha paired with a range of tasty baked goods, or try something completely different in the form of one of The Brass’ signature blends including lavender honey or cinnamon lattes. There’s also an “East meets West” theme, which is reflected in the range of Arabic and Turkish coffees and sandwiches on offer. The breakfast menu features seven dishes, ranging from a decadent French toast covered with Nutella and pistachio, to a smoked salmon sandwich for the more savoury palate. We recommend the light egg-white omelette with a wilted spinach filling, if you want a healthy start to your morning. Pair it with a walnut sahleb (steamed milk, orchid flour, cinnamon and topped with fresh walnuts), and you have yourself a winning breakfast. The staff at the City Walk branch are good when it comes to recommending dishes, especially if you can’t decide between a Moroccan or a Californian salad.
