I love sleek, minimalist cafés ( Chocolat Chic and Hey Sugar, formerly Sugar Daddy's are two of my favourites) but when Shakespeare and Co opened a new branch in Dubai Marina Mall with panoramic views of the Marina I couldn't wait to pay them a visit. The Victorian-inspired décor and vibrant colours create an Alice in Wonderland feel with quirky chandeliers and ornaments.

There's an eclectic menu with a wide range of soups, sandwiches and main meals including dishes such as chicken with tiger prawns. The drinks selection is huge with fresh juices, soya smoothies and various coffees and teas (Moroccan, jasmine, flowering ...) We just could not resist the cakes for which they are renowned - a profiterole tart for mr b and a strawberry tart for me - both absolutely delicious.....

........and friendly, professional staff just add to the warm ambiance! Highly recommended!!
