If you happen to be in the corniche area, do try Yamanote Atelier Cafe in Etihad Tower.
I am in love with the combination of matcha+latte or matcha+hot chocolate. Their coffee is more on the milder side but I haven’t tried their espresso or their Aoyama blend so perhaps it can be requested ?
Their pastries are soft and varies ranging from sweet or savory (prices between AED15 to AED20) and they are open from 7.30am so perfect for breakfast before work.
Today I have ample time so I tried their Egg Benedict Cube which was huge and filling. I opted for Salmon, and the presentation was quite attractive with the smoked salmon, spinach and another egg hidden inside the bread cube. Note that the breakfast hot items are available from 8am onwards (sometimes even at 8.15am depends on their kitchen).
I have attached the menu for reference.
PS : They have a smaller branch at Abu Dhabi Mall but I think they don’t have hot items as there is no kitchen so only pastries and drinks.
