After 5 + City Pig’s analysis

After experiencing, Bateel in Dubai, I was pleased to find that we have a boutique café version of Bateel as well.
Bateel is known for its fine dates, but also the quality in its food produce. In Dubai, Café Bateel serves hot and cold meals.
The London café branch only serves hot drinks, dates and cakes. However, the cakes are wonderful and are not priced too expensive at all. I would recommend people who around the area to stop by for a cup of coffee and cake. This is a much nicer place to come for a place to recharge your energy after a long shopping trip. It may be high in quality but the price is very reasonable.
It really makes a unique change from the chained coffee stores which will be always busy with tourists.
The Mille Feuille is absolutely amazing. It is light in texture and the puff layer with the cream is sensational.  Sometimes, it can be a bit heavy but not this one.
I will be coming here again to try other cakes. The coffee latte was perfect, not too strong or weak. City Pig’s pal had a hot chocolate which you had to make yourself. Hot chocolate chips are in a cup and hot milk is given to you to pour and to mix them together. A unique experience and quite fun.
The hot chocolate may not be the best I have had but it was a better taste than some chained coffee shops. Manon café, just next door does superb hot chocolates using Leonidas chocolates to make it.

Café Bateel must have a lot of Saudia Arabian fans as this place is always quite full and so get there early to grab a spot.
