Miss J Cafe = only the absolute best place for cake in Abu Dhabi, their chocolate cake is unparalleled!! It’s a favorite with us girls and we will find something to celebrate, just to go there :) Miss J Cafe comes highly recommended, a definite must for sure!!!
Just the place to relax and have a break with your girl friends. Their outlet at Mazyad Mall is ideally located for meeting up with the girls whilst doing the school run or even to stop for a quick lunch after school. We especially love their panini’s and wraps, as a treat the dark chocolate covered coffee beans are delicious. The service is always good and the staff friendly.
I must admit that I do not like grocery shopping, but shopping at LuLu is a treat. Especially the fruit and vegetables section as there’s such a wide selection. LuLu also stocks products from all the world and I can always find that something special from home. I recently bought all our home appliances there and the service was great. The delivery were on time and the appliances were installed professionally.
Woolworths (or Woolies as we call it back home in South Africa) is the best place to do clothes shopping for the whole family. Their quality is excellent and you know that you find what you are looking for. There’s no way that I can go into this store just to browse, as I always find something that I must have. It would be great to get the home ware ranges here in the UAE as well.
Ikea equals the best’s one stop shopping ever, which I just love. We recently moved back to the UAE and it was so easy to just walk in and be able to find everything (from cutlery too furniture, not to mentioned all the “nice-e-ties”) we needed to setup home again. Their prices and quality as well as variety are really good. I particularly like their curtains which I can easily hem myself, as the standard curtain lengths just won’t do here in the UAE.
However the one thing I don’t like, is shopping there over peak hours. Reason being the kids trolleys - the kids go mad running all over the place! If there are 4 kids in family every little one has his or her own trolley causing havoc as far as they go! Way better for me to shop early in the morning, this way the little ones can still have their fun while their parents shop.
I don’t really like donuts, but the plain one’s at Krispy Kreme are the BEST, we just looooooooove it . The kids prefer the sweeter and more extravagant variations, but my husband and I always go for the plain glazed ones. Surely the best is the home delivery, whenever I have guests over, I can have a awesome treat for all, within minutes!!!
