Time Out Says
With a thumbs up from the fictional “IT girl” herself we head to its newest branch in Mall of the Emirates with high expectations.
The US eatery, which already has a branch in City Walk, has a small area showcasing its delicious-looking desserts – but there’s no private dining area, with tables placed in an open space in the middle of the bustling mall.
We take a seat in the compact area and browse through the menu of breakfast dishes, appetisers, salads, sandwiches, mains, sides and desserts (including an afternoon tea) and there’s even a dedicated vegan menu.
If you’re after something savoury go for the halloumi and avocado sandwich, which comes served alongside a portion of perfectly-seasoned chips. The sandwich is served in the softest focaccia bread we’ve had in a long time and as far as sandwiches go it’s decent, while the addition of red onions and red peppers give it a pleasant crunch.
Popular for its desserts, we opt decide for the pistachio milk cake – a moist cake topped with whipped cream and served with a jug of pistachio milk to pour on top. It’s as decadent as cakes come but you’ll have to have a super-sweet tooth as be warned, it’s one that’s probably best shared with a mate.
It might not wow, but if you’re in need of mid-shopping dessert, it’s an okay pitstop.
