A simple cafe located at Dubai Marina
We were invited by the owner Ms. Champika during the Truckers event and thought of heading to the cafe along with our blogger friends for a tasting session.

It’s a small cafe facing the lakeside at Dubai Marina waters giving it a casual vibe. The place was way too warm for our liking as there were some issues with the air conditioning which put us off to try out a variety of dishes as originally planned.
The lighting inside the Cafe was not in sync with the overall theme. For instance the lights on one end of the Cafe were neon blue and in other parts yellow warm light. This didn’t help when it came to taking pictures of the food as well.
The only plus of the place is that it faces a gorgeous lake, so you can at least take a stroll outside.
1. Dollies Chili Fries [AED 30]: A plate of crispy thin fries layered with minced beef and garnished mozzarella cheese. The cheese was well done. The serving is generous so it can be easily shared with two people.
2. Brownie Shake [AED 25]: This was an average chocolate milkshake topped with some whipped cream. There was no sign of any brownie nor any flavor part of the shake either. So this drink failed to meet our expectations.
We have not come across such poor service till now. Each dish ordered took over 30 minutes to be served which was quite a long time for the simple dishes that we ordered. We were told that the dishes are made from scratch and hence takes 25-30 minutes waiting time for each and every dish that was ordered which we thought was not reasonable. Also, the food served was cold. There was no explanation of the ingredients of the dish either as we had vegetarian people with us and their food also included meat which they could not consume in the end.
We did not find value for money for the items we tried out.
We might come back to give the cafe another the chance.
