An ideal antidote to doing the supermarket shop located, along with other outlets, in this "Town Center" a mini mini mall in the Springs/Emirates Hills/Meadows area.
I was not very impressed when we visited the restaurant 12 months ago, however we had an enjoyable meal this time.
The food style is "European Cafe" an extensive breakfast menu, afternoon teas, pasta, pizza, salads, burgers etc and a child's menu again with the usual offerings. There is no alcohol but the fresh fruit juices are very good.
There is a large outdoor area where you can eat and have Shisha and smoke. The interior is best described as "quirky" at first it all seams a mish mash but quickly one becomes used to the decor and feels harmonious. No doubt some interior designer was well rewarded for his/her efforts.
Last visit I had a poor imitation of the French Classic Croque Monsieur, this time a delicious thin beef Pepperoni Pizza. Also tried were the lamb skewers with satay sauce from the Light Bites section but the star of this visit was the Blue Cheese and Pear salad comprising mixed leaves with a delicious dressing, a very generous helping of crumbled (we think - I should have asked) Gorgonzola, walnuts and a wonderfully poached pear. As a non salad person even I found this an amazing dish.
Three adults, one child's, two fresh fruit juices and a Sprite totaled AED 216 roughly 36 GBP which for Dubai we feel was good value.
Service was efficient and friendly with the child's dish being served first, always a plus in my view.
They also have a patisserie.

Thank you for your detailed review about your experience with us, and while we were dismayed by your initial negative experience with us, we are ecstatic that we were able to make it up to you!. Indeed our Blue Cheese and Pear Salad is one of our customer's favorites and we are glad you enjoyed it. Regarding the Croque Monsieur, we have in fact removed it from our recent menu and we hope to refine it and bring it back the way it should be sometime in the future. We are delighted that besides the food, that you experienced great service and that you felt it was value for money which has been our mantra since we opened our very first restaurant 12 years ago! We look forward to welcoming you and you family and friends back again soon!
