A few days ago I popped over to the new area of City Walk in Dubai. It’s also called City Walk Phase II, as it’s an extension (that’s still undergoing some construction) of the original area full of shops, cafés and restaurants.
My friend Sebastian picked me up and we drove over, parking the car in the huge parking area underground. Our mission was to find coffee, but first we had a long stroll around the area, which is built up with lots of pretty sculptures and interesting murals.
We strolled around, enjoying being able to still walk outside in Dubai with summer creeping up on us. Although it was a cloudy day (which is pretty rare) it was still hot and muggy.
The area has even got a section which is very quaint with red telephone boxes, which made me feel right at home!
These awesome palm trees have all got a knitted cover on them – I wonder if somewhere some little Arabic grannies have been knitting away!
We made our way to the coffee shop we’d spotted from the main road, which is called The Brass Coffee & Community. It’s only opened recently and is a real gem.
The interior is bright and airy and full of quirky touches, and loads of decorations that I would love to have at home!
We ordered some coffee – I went for a coconut latte which sounded intriguing, and was a great choice.
Sebastian had tea, which came in a gorgeous intricate silver teapot, with a pretty little cover for the handle.
We couldn’t resist the cake display, and I went for a pistachio and apricot cake, and Sebastian had the most delicious carrot cake ever – so moist and the perfect amount of icing!
We sat and chatted for ages, catching up on everything that’s been going on in our lives. A great afternoon out!
