I needed a break after a shopping trip, and it just looked so clean and neat. The coffee was great, the carrot cupcake soooo moist it melted in your mouth, and the staff were very attentive. It was so good I returned the next day, and was recognised by the staff, who thanked me for coming back. What more can... More

So many tempting options to choose from. Most in demand (not a secret!) their banana pudding. Lime lovers should also give a try to they key lime cheecake with white chocolate macadamia, a bliss! I really like the vibe of this Dubai Mall shop. Watching the friendly staff busy decorating the cupcakes... Everyone seems to love their job!

We were so glad during our weekend trip in Dubai we found this inside Bloomingdale's at Dubai Mall. It was a small place and there really were no seats so getting a coffee and some cake to take away is how it is. We had banana pudding and coffee - over the top delicious. We are big fans of banana... More

I liked the selections, but we tried 3 different cupcakes and all were way too sweet for our taste. Coffee was nice and hot though.

We got two cakes for a birthday (23 cm 3 layers each). The chocolate cake was just perfect! Moist, juicy and full of flavor. The "popular" red velvet was very disappointing, very dry (not juicy at all) and tasteless. I would not order this again!

Staying in Downtown Dubai

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown Dubai
You can’t fail to miss Dubai’s iconic Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building. It towers over the city and resides in the prestigious Downtown development. Once an old army base, Downtown is now the jewel in Dubai’s crown, a beautiful residential and leisure area housing not only the world’s tallest building, but the world’s largest fountains and mall. Wide marble sidewalks are perfect for strolling, with restaurants, art galleries and children’s play areas. Specially commissioned sculptures line the roads and Downtown is often used as a canvas for modern art displays and community events such as Classic Car Shows and National Day parades. In the cooler months, cross one of the many bridges to the Burj Khalifa park and enjoy a picnic alongside residents and visitors, or enjoy a lunch or dinner watch the dancing fountains. Because of its mixed use, Downtown is a fantastic place to mix with Dubai residents and locals and watch real life unfold in a cosmopolitan environment.
