THE SUM OF US
The open concept with the coffee bar in the front and coffee roasting on the back and bakery on side and the whole place open with interesting lights makes it very welcoming. Located at the new Sheraton on Sheikh Zayed Road, Sum Of Us is a cafe / bakery concept.The interiors simplistic yet unique. Boasting inside, outside and upstairs seating with modern custom made decor, an exposed ceiling among st concrete and steel creating an unique feeling in it.The Sum of Us has a bakery and Roastery on the ground floor and an upper dining level as well.There is also outdoor seating space with beautiful flowers planted which would be perfect in the cooler months.
The cafe has a sourdough bakery,a gourmet cafe and a coffee roastery where they make their own bread,roast their own coffee and fillet their own fish.
The bakery section includes multi grain sourdough,fruit loaf,apple strudel,cookies,croissant,freshly baked scrolls etc.which are full of flavors,texture and character.
The Roastery section includes aeropress,chemex,syphon,tea dripper,skerton grinder etc.Their only wish is that we enjoy our coffees as much as they enjoy making it.
The Cafe section gives us a variety of dishes to choose from breakfast,lunch and dinner.The breakfast includes prawns scrambled eggs,scrambled eggs,poached eggs on toast,salted caramel french toast etc.The lunch has got seared tuna salad,katsu chicken bowl,soft shell crab burger,house made pies etc.The dinner comes in two platters Small and Big in Small plates we have marinated grill veg,tuna carpaccio etc and in the bigger plates we have double greens and filo pie,confit duck leg etc.
The after dinner section is small but the best with bread and butter pudding,cream catalana and eton mess.
Their are also take away sandwiches,wraps and salads in case if anyone is to busy to sit and dine.
It was my first time and invited by Pallavi.The staff welcomed me with chirping smile just perfect for the day to start.
I love the concept of their house water because it comes in a giant corked bottle (and is free!).As it was around 10 in the morning breakfast was only the good choice at that time.As pallavi arrived with her beautiful smile all way from work she advised me to have the scrambled eggs and a grapefruit with lychee peach lemonade.
The scrambled eggs that could be for a perfect morning to start with.It was done well and laid on a piece of crispy bread and served with beautiful dazzling red grilled tomatoes.The perfect that could be.The eggs was soft and had a little taste of pepper in it.The colors just gave the gorgeous look in it.
The lemonade was the best of its kind.Freshly prepared and the taste of grapefruit and lychee peach was so fresh.I smelled it like a 100 times as it was so soothing to the nose.The chill factor added more taste and character to it.A must try once you visit.
The ambiance,the food,the staff everything just made my day with the immensely productive chat with Pallavi.I f you are in fond of english breakfast then this is the right place to grab your eggs on.
