There are plenty of places to eat in Dubai, but it is always good to find somewhere new that offers things you never knew you needed before this moment. This turned out to be the case with Pantry Cafe in the Business Bay area of Dubai. It is a little difficult to find and the street parking is very limited but there is underground parking. The area directly outside the cafe is attractive, being landscaped with mood or reflective pools of dark, still water.

  

As you step inside you are greeted with an array of tempting foods expensively packaged. The chocolate coated liquorish balls in gold and silver look amazing but the raspberry liquorish did not please. They also offer other varieties of high-end chocolate delights and some specialty crockery as well.

It is at least partly due to the wide range of attractive items that Pantry Cafe describes itself as a gourmet place. Decor-wise, industrial-chic, with polished concrete floors and exposed ducts of polished chrome features strongly; however, the attention to detail in the food is excellent, too.

For us it was brunch we were after and there was a wide selection of the usual egg and toast dishes with a few twists, for example poached eggs with a drizzle of chili oil.

The shashoukha (described in an earlier article here and pictured below) is an especially rich red and the Eggs Benedict (also below) were great, too.

The coffee is good, which is by no means a given, varying along with the quality of milk available. In addition, all manner of healthy smoothies are on offer with or without various nut milks, some sweetened with date syrup. The use of date syrup seems appropriate in the Middle East and is also very much the high fashion sweetener of the moment.

But what really impressed our little party, which included a seven month old baby, was the free baby puree - yes, free. Of course there is little expense in preparing vegetable puree for babies, but it is a great marketing ploy. Our baby enjoyed the broccoli and found it matched her outfit rather well once smeared over her face.
