Let’s start with some sweet news – As it is always the best place to start…
One of our favourite bakeries in Dubai, The Hummingbird Bakery has started an afternoon tea! As you can imagine for a sweet tooth like me this was music to my ears. We usually keep their cakes for special occasions only. Which really means we only buy twice a year, on Mylittlelove’s birthdays.
The afternoon tea includes 2 drinks as well as; 1 chocolate chip cookie, 1 red velvet whoopie pie, 2 cupcakes, 4 Chocolate Brownies and 1 slice of Lemon Loaf. Which was more then enough for our family. Littlered let us know that the hot chocolates are “the worlds best” and Aoibhie decided the whoopie pie was her favourite – I will have to trust her on that as she devoured it in seconds. I will have to return on my own the next time!!
I was very impressed with the ambiance. If you are a people watcher like Littlered you could choose to sit in the open area and watch the world pass you by. Looking for a quiet corner for yourself? You can pick one of the tables inside – I think I will be opting for the latter if I escaped for an afternoon with a girlfriend and wanted to feel a little more posh!
It really is value for money and just something different! You make a 30% saving when opting for this deal – which in my eyes is incredible. Most days ordering a coffee and water in Dubai you would hit that bill! Staff are very friendly, the service was prompt and the coffee gave us the pick me up we needed to tour the Burj Khalifa or the Birdy Khalida as Aoibhie will have you know, for hours after.
The Hummingbird Afternoon Tea Menu runs every day between 3 pm to 6 pm and is priced at 49Dhs for 2 people. You can find them in Mall Of The Emirates and also The Dubai Mall. No booking is required just turn up and enjoy!
*Whilst Hummingbird picked up our bill – all opinions are my own in this honest and unbiased review – Enjoy!
