It was not just One Cupcake

Passing by dozens of beautiful cupcakes by the front display at Bloombury Abu Dhabi made me do a double-take! I took a look at the menu and was pleasantly happy they offered afternoon tea special which gave me a choice of any of the eye-catching cupcakes!

For 55 AED the afternoon tea set features a hot drink, a cupcake of choice and a variety of little nibbles which include a strawberry tart, a macaron, a chocolate tart, 2 brownies, 2 almond cakes, 2 scones with clotted cream/jam and 3 sandwiches – salmon, chicken, cheese.

This set was able to feed 2 people as an afternoon snack, you could purchase drinks/other cupcakes additionally.

Seating

The storefront of Bloomsbury in Al Wahda Mall itself is very nice and welcoming. Passerby-ers could peek in and take a look at the cupcake offerings. They do dine-in and take out. You will find that this location offers a very welcoming vibe as it is a large kiosk in the mall. There are a few tables in the middle of the kiosk which provides more privacy to the guests. I did opt to sit in the open area where you could see the other stores and other people who walk by. I picked this area since it had the most natural light.. and I love people watching.

Afternoon Tea

This set was a great deal however they only offer this deal from 2-4pm. Regular price for cupcakes are priced between 12-16AED. Some of the notable tea set items were the sandwiches! I had all 3 sandwiches and they were fresh, savory and light. I enjoyed the smoke salmon one the most. Out of the sweet nibbles, I enjoyed the chocolate macaron the most. Macarons are my favourite tho! The brownie I found to be too sweet and the almond cake too dry. The cupcake of choice I had was the key-lime cupcake, mainly because of its amazing memorizing look I chose it! The meringue was wonderfully made! It had a key lime center which was a great balance of sour and sweet!
