If you’re a fan of Lime Tree Café and live in The Springs, you’re in luck as there’s a brand-new branch of the popular eatery now open in the area.

The Springs branch of the homegrown café is open daily from 10am until 10pm in The Springs Souk and we’ve been along to check it out.

The menu is packed full of tasty dishes for all diets, too, including new vegan and gluten-free dishes and a new range of salads, such as Italian crunchy vegetable salad with a lemon and maple dressing.

Stars on the menu included roasted vegetables with turmeric, herbed couscous and feta, a gluten-free bowl with kale, edamame, avocado and halloumi and braised New Zealand beef benedict with Parmesan baked hash-brown, organic free range poached egg and hollandaise.

Of course the café is famed for its desserts, and as well as the popular carrot cake, there’s a roasted apricot and pistachio tart on the menu that is making our ears prick up.

And in even more exciting news, this new store features a bakery window.

“Customers can pick up cakes, slices, brownies and tea cakes - if they’re entertaining at home, they can just whip into the mall and pick up what they need,” said a spokesman for the team.

There’s even a new range of gluten-free and vegan cakes, including banana with caramel swirl and crushed walnuts, carrot cake with coconut frosting and peach and lemon with citrus frosting.

And the chain is also aiming to be completely plastic-free in takeaways – so everything from bags to cups and coffee lids is biodegradable or compostable. If you bring in your own cup you’ll also get a discount on your drink.

The mall is already home to a six-screen Reel Cinemas, shops such as Aldo, Daiso, Faces and Mothercare, grocery stores including Marks & Spencer, Carrefour Market and BiOrganic, and grooming and beauty salons for men and women.

Dining options in the mall currently include Asia Tang, Carluccio’s and Le Pain Quotidien, with Lime Tree set to bring even more choice to the complex.

The homegrown café brand, which first launched in Jumeirah 1 over a decade ago, currently has three branches across the city. In addition to the original, you’ll now find outlets in Al Quoz (beside The Courtyard Gallery) and in Al Safa, along Sheikh Zayed Road (opposite Gold & Diamond Park).

Now pass us a slice of that carrot cake.
Open daily 10am-10pm. The Springs Souk, The Springs, Emirates Hills, www.thelimetreecafe.com (04 325 6325).
