Having lunch in the Victorian Era


Living in Abu Dhabi, we enjoy a wide variety of cuisines, cafes and restaurants. But it’s rare to find a place that offers an experience just as good as its food. We were lucky enough we did! Just last week, we were lunch guests at Shakespeare & Co, where we enjoyed a delicious lunch and excellent service in a beautiful Victorian-style setting.

No. fifty seven boutique cafe

Our walk to the cafe included a serene view of the night water, docked with yachts and boats.

That’s exactly what we thought as we walked through Umm Al Emarat park heading straight for the Ripe Market. The Ripe Market takes place every Saturday at Umm Al Emarat and hosts a variety of vendors in a market-style setting.

Crunch and Munch


We recently discovered a cozy café called Crunch and Munch, located in the heart of Khalidiyah. We were looking for a quiet place to work on our blog and couldn’t have found a better place. We spent a few hours there, working, eating and chatting. We fell in love with the décor and ambiance. The place was fresh and different, seats were comfortable, and the staff was super friendly.
