…السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته

I have tried Tom&Serg for multiple occasions.. Whether it was breakfast, lunch, coffee break or early dinner and I must say I was never disappointed. This post will be about the breakfast dishes I have tried. The waiting time for the food was between 5 – 10 minutes which is fast for the beautiful flavorful dishes they serve. The menu is just a single back to back menu, short and simple. The menu includes AM food, PM food, ALL day, desserts, coffee and milkshakes. A bottle of complimentary water is given each time. The atmosphere is casual, hip and contemparory. The waiters/resses are very friendly.

Here is what we ordered:

– Flat white ( 17 DHS ) :
Just what you would expect with any good flat white. No complaints.

– Salted Caramel milkshake ( 23 DHS ) :
Which from the name you would think it would be heavy for breakfast but nope! It was light and enjoyable.

– Shakshouka baked eggs ( 41 DHS ) :
Melted tomatoes, mozzarella, chilli, cumin, dukkah, toasted surdough. Comes with two slices of brown bread. I would recommend this if you want to try a breakfast dish at Tom&Serg.

– Baghdad scramble ( 51 DHS ) :
Spicy lamb sausage, minted labneh, cauliflower florets, pine nuts, raisins, hummous, paratha.

Jumeira Lake Towers offers a variety of new cafés, patisseries, restaurants and many more start up companies! I really just want to spend a month there to try out all the new things!

Here is one of the new patisserie dedicated entirely to éclairs! The éclairs are high quality with fresh & fine ingredients. Though they need to be consumed in the next 24 hours after purchase to enjoy it (suggested by them) !

These mini éclairs are the perfect size for fancy gatherings or casual meetups with friends ! They are creamy and soft. Éclair offer 12 different flavors ranging from milk chocolate and passion fruit to Japanese green matcha tea.

Price: Each mini éclair is for 8.50 DHS while the regular is for 19 DHS.

Here is the box that we bought:
