Located in Wasl Vita, in a quaint little corner is The Coffee Club. Walk in, and you’re met with the delicious scent of coffee wafting around the café. First impressions always matter, and I decide I’m going to fall in love with this place.
Our chirpy and sweet server walks us through the menu, which is a wondrous mixture of Italian, American and even Thai dishes! My guest, who’s big on shakes and frappés, orders a Caramel Loaded Shake [AED 34]. No words to describe this one, just look below…
Our order consists of Mac and Cheese Croquettes [AED 28] and Chicken Quinoa Salad [AED 52] for starters, with Chicken Thai Green Curry [AED 49] and Double Cheese Bacon Burger [AED 64] for mains. All suggested by the server and suiting our requirements. While I preferred the Thai Curry for its subtle taste and creaminess (would have loved some spice in there too!), the Double Cheese and Bacon Burger weighed higher for the sister. ‘Cause who doesn’t love bacon, right?
As is the norm we both dive in for the dessert menu and choose the Red Velvet Pancakes with Raspberry Mascarpone [AED 55]. The description and picture were enough to lure us but they failed due to the hard texture of the pancakes.
My cup of flat white [AED 18] saved the day though…always rely on coffee, and you’ll never be disappointed!
If we’re going back: I’m a burger person so that section is what I’ll be turning to when I head to The Coffee Club next.
Wasl Vita Mall is home to a number of restaurants, which one is your favorite? Let me know your thoughts…
Until then, happy eating! xx
I’d like to think of DIFC as an up and coming version of Citywalk. Chic and housing a number of well-known places to dine in Dubai. A recent visit led us to a hidden trattoria going by the name – Mercato.

This is officially my first blog post for the year, and hopefully, there are many to follow. For all those following my social media accounts, Instagram mostly, you’ll know that I still exist and am totally not out of the picture like how the website would show. Rather, what I’ve started doing is carefully selecting restaurants to review and feature, especially those that really make it for me.
One such place was Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse, located at The Address, Dubai Marina, a hotel that I’m not unfamiliar with. To sum it up, I’ve had some of the best experiences at their restaurants, and they’re truly worth a try. Continue reading “Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse – The Address, Dubai Marina”
Steakhouses are not uncommon in Dubai, but there are very few that amaze us. The usual criteria to differentiate for us would be the quality of the meat, how it is sourced, and the fat content. Continue reading “Is Seafire your usual steakhouse?”

Earlier, a dining experience would be measured by the taste of food and hospitality. Later, ambiance became an important factor. And now, interiors play a vital role in choosing where to dine. Continue reading “Breakfast Goals at Culinary Boutique”

It is no uncommon feat that a new restaurant opens its doors in Dubai every now and then. But what happens to those already prevailing, you may ask. They get sidetracked by the new, trendy ventures which almost have no authenticity of the cuisine served at all. It is when hidden gems that deserve so much more are lost and never heard of. This is a story similar to that of Cucina, located at JW Marriott Hotel Dubai. Continue reading “What’s cooking at Cucina?”
The onset of winter is the perfect excuse to start dining al fresco and we’ve come up with a perfect location for one of those late lunches out!
