Food **** Service *****
Today my husband, twin daughters and I went to the Crustique Afternoon Tea brunch. First off, this is truly the best service we have had in all of our time in Abu Dhabi. It was simply superb.
We started off with the bread basket which was amazing. The only things we would have liked was an option of a plain croissant versus just the cheese and zaatar options. We also ordered the homemade lemonades and latte. Finally I have found what is the best latte I've had in AD. Narrowly it beat out the La Brioche one I had in the past. The homemade lemonade was very tart and exactly our taste. We also ordered the homemade green apple soda and I would go back just for this amazing drink. Reminds me a liquid version of my favourite green apple sorbet from Mallorca.
The mini sandwiches were a hit with us except for the salmon bagels. The flatbreads were to die for especially the vegetable ones with artichokes and olives.
The hot breakfasts were fantastic as well. Two members ordered the English breakfast and one twin said they were the best baked beans she's ever tasted and even got seconds. I had the mushroom and cheese omelet and if I could have stuffed a second one in I would have. The other twin ordered the Belgian waffle with ice cream. The ice cream was a HUGE hit and I was told was even better than my homemade one. The Belgian waffle was the same. Even better than my homemade one. 😩
The afternoon tea stand and desserts were what the husband and kids were waiting for. The scones were scrumptious and the jam and cream had me head over heels! I had to fight the twins for the others! The chocolate cake was hubby's favourite. The chocolate mini eclairs were amazing. The choux pastry was the best I've had worldwide. The mini bite of heaven that could easily cause any diet to detour.
All of this for 196AED for the four of us. I truly can't wait to come back again. The kids are already asking when we can return.
I can't get over how truly amazing the service was. The servers and manager were amazing and attentive without being obtrusive.
