More than cupcakes at Bloomsbury's - Various locations in Abu Dhabi
I then have a Smoked Salmon on multi loaf sandwich. It is a classic sandwich. Uncomplicated, but the key is the freshness of the ingredients. The creamy cheese is rich and generous. Of course the unexpected tart from the capers makes this a great sandwich. At only 39AED, there is great value for money here.
Finally, Bloomsbury's is mainly about those deliciously devilish sweet treats that are cupcakes. I have a red velvet, their top selling cupcake. It is, as the name suggests, all smoothness. The anticipated sweet rush does not materialise. A cup cake not overwhelmed by sugar - I like it. Finally, the triple chocolate brownie is delicious too. I recommend that it is put in the oven a short while. That chocolate will just ooze into your plate. Make sure you order their Union hand roasted coffee. My daughter recognised them from a lesson at school on Fair trade. She was excited. I was equally excited about the rich aromatic taste.
Staff are warm and friendly, and willing to engage with guests. Furthermore, if you have the chance to meet Glen, the Operations Manager, you will be so fascinated. It is not every day you meet a Hong Kong national in F&B in Abu Dhabi.
Bloomsbury's is definitely about more than cupcakes and bespoke cakes. While it specialises and excels in the aforementioned, I enjoyed their savoury items, perfect when you want to have something hearty and filling before ending with a sweet indulgence. It offer a succinct menu at great value that undercuts its competitors. So, whether you want a sandwich, a cupcake or a cup of their rich coffee, look no further than Bloomsbury's.
