World-famous Italian bakery set to open in The Dubai Mall

The ultra-trendy cake shop is coming to Dubai next month

Fancy yourself as a bit of a fashionista? Then Cova is the place for you to eat, drink and be fabulous.

The first Middle Eastern venue of the famous Italian pasticceria (that’s cake shop to us), is opening next month (February 2018) and the venue alone promises to be an absolute spectacle.

Cova Dubai will be situated in the new fashion district (naturally) of The Dubai Mall, with a terrace overlooking the Dubai Fountain, and its interiors are exquisite.

The floors will be covered in mosaic tiles, beneath velvet sofas, dazzling crystal chandeliers, gilded mirrors and Italian marble everything.

And the experience only gets more delicious with the food.

The world-famous Cova panettone recipe had been jealously guarded since the beginning of the 19th century and has been passed secretly from generation to generation.

Founded in 1817, today Cova is a globally-recognised brand and an institution that “celebrates tailored craftsmanship and creativity in its confectionary”.

The unique atmosphere is a whimsical time capsule of Italian tradition, that you’ll soon be able to experience in the heart of Downtown Dubai.

“We are proud to offer a touch of Italian tradition to Dubai,” says Paola Faccioli, CEO of Cova. “Our heritage, history and exceptional products are more than two centuries old.

“The location we have chosen is stunning as much as the one in Milan, right in the middle of the luxury shopping district.

“Today, Cova counts 27 locations around the world, including the latest opening in Monte Carlo, and we cannot wait to share our famous hand-made panettone with the international, demanding and refined clientele of one of the most aspirational city in the world.”

The exact date of opening is yet to be announced, watch this space.

We can wait to get some panettone in our faces.
