Where will we meet? The Coffee Club
By Anne Lora Santos Published: April 19, 2017
Whether you are looking for a good spot to curl up and read your favorite book or sip a hot brewed coffee during your “me time days;” or hunting for a cozy place to meet a friend for some chit-chat and cheesecake or indulge for some English breakfast or full-course dinner, The Coffee Club has it all sorted for you.
Australian favorite, The Coffee Club’s philosophy is quite simple and that is to provide good food, great service, excellent coffee and the answer to “Where will I meet you?”
The Coffee Club has over 360 cafés in nine countries. They are known for serving a wide variety of international food and drink choices, and especially for their famous breakfast menu.
The Filipino Times visited their calm spot in Golden Mile, Palm Jumeirah and we’ve list down some food items you can’t missed during your first visit.
The All-Day Breakfast Meal
How delightful is it that they serve an All-Day Breakfast meal? If you are up for some heavy big breakfast anytime of the day (we won’t judge you), order this meal. For Dh59, you get to have a big plate of cumberland sausages, veal bacon, scrambled eggs, cherry tomatoes, button mushrooms, ciabatta toast and hash brown.
If you are looking for a savory and flavorful dish while still being health conscious, we recommend you try Salmon Nicoise Pesto. It may come a bit pricey at Dh79 but every bit of the dish is worth it. From the food presentation, quality of ingredients, to the way it was prepared and the taste. It is superb. This dish is served with grilled salmon topped with The Coffee Club’s modern interpretation of the classic nicoise salad drizzled with fresh pesto sauce.
If the salmon dish is not enough, order their Classic Carbonara. You won’t get wrong with this. Though, it may sound a little cliché to order this, their version is just hard to resist. This spaghetti with bacon, garlic finished with cream, egg and parmesan cheese is quite a heavy and filling dish. It is good for sharing priced at Dh 46.
Some food items you can also try is their Strong Arm Angus Burger with Cheese and Bacon. This imported New Zealand angus beef burger topped with veal bacon, melted cheese with potato wedges on the side are good for late lunch or early dinner.
We suggest you keep some appetite for pancakes, the fluffy ones. The pancakes served at The Coffee Club are similar to the ones served in Japan. The fluffy, jiggly Japanase-style pancakes. The taste sure didn’t disappoint. We tried both entries; the Coconut Pancake which is coconut infused pancakes served with caramelized banana and candied cashew nuts and the Pancake Stack served with blueberry puree, maple syrup, ice cream and a dash of cream. Don’t worry, it’s not too sweet. They are priced Dh 36 and Dh 38 respectively. If you opt for shakes, try one of our favorites, the Chocolate Brownie. Surprisingly, it is not too sweet and you can finish the entire glass (just don’t asked how much calorie intake you’ll get and you’ll just be fine.)
Drink coffee for a good cause
A trip to The Coffee Club is not as good without a cup of coffee. They have a variety of hot drinks from Espresso, Macchiato, Café Latte, Chai Latte, to mention a few, and the good news is when you buy UTZ Certified coffee, cocoa or tea you are helping build a better future. UTZ Certified stands for sustainable farming and better opportunities for farmers, their families and our planet. The UTZ program enables farmers to learn better farming methods, improve working conditions and take better care of their children and the environment.
