Little Suzie’s is on the mezzanine level overlooking the lobby, and simply decorated in dark wood, green, cream and marble. Some tables are more private than others, tucked away in their own little alcoves, and there’s a children’s area with a TV to keep the little ones amused. The food is better than expected for a diner-themed brunch. There’s a waffle and pancake station (try them with vanilla sauce, cream and the sour-sweet cherry compote), a bagel station, a burger station, a sizeable salad station and a selection of decent American classics like meatloaf and mac ’n’ cheese. While the cuisine won’t win any Michelin stars, it will definitely satisfy comfort-food cravings. The 72-hour slow-cooked (and huge) ribs with smoky, gooey barbecue sauce are the best part of the brunch. Desserts include delicious whole poached apples that are light and fruity enough to eat several of, adequate pavlovas and cheesecakes and an obligatory chocolate fountain that we have no complaints about. There’s also a children’s station well stocked with jars full of gummy sweets, and the staff are particularly patient with children, making this a good option for families. There’s a big wheel at the entrance, which can be spun to win prizes, at the risk of forfeits including doing the twist for two minutes and singing your favourite ’50s or ’60s song for two minutes. Needless to say, this is a big hit with the kids. Dhs199 (soft drinks), Dhs220 (selected beverages), Dhs399 (bubbly). Noon-4pm.
