Quick working lunch (well, brunch) at the newest Abu Dhabi branch of this Australian café/restaurant chain.
I've had their coffee before and knew that my flat white would be excellent (it was), but it was my first time trying their food. Went with eggs benedict with veal bacon and was really happy with my choice --they make theirs with ciabatta bread that was a nice, chewy contrast to the crispy bacon and soft eggs. The sauce was delicious but not overpowering and the portion was just right.
The café is out of the way (it's where Caribou used to be, if you're an AUH veteran) so it's a great spot for a quiet chat or to read a book. Service is warm and friendly. One point docked for only having one outlet in the entire restaurant--makes working here kind of a gamble.
Overall, a solid option in Marina Mall for a chill meal out.
