I’m on a trip home at the moment so I’ve been busy catching up with everyone, hence the lack of posts! While I am here I’ve been trying to improve my photography skills and may post some of my efforts soon. I really should do as Hubs suggests and read the book that came with the camera instead of just snapping away and hoping for the best!
Anyway, this particular post has been requested by Hubs as he has been busy recommending breakfast at Nathalie’s to people but couldn’t remember the precise location, etc. so he said write a post about it and then I can just tell people to look at your blog. Ever one who aims to please here goes……
I first discovered Nathalie’s not long after we moved to our new abode and have enjoyed a few visits for coffee and a catch up with the newspapers but aside from a Bagel I’d never really sampled the food, so after a particularly appetite inducing Saturday morning spin class we found ourselves parking up outside the TwoFour54 building in search of a beautiful breakfast.
The café, situated underneath the office building is all polished concrete floors and sleek contemporary finishing with a motto of Eat, Live, Love. A breakfast menu is served Sun – Thurs 8 – 11am, and from 8 – 4pm on Fri – Sat. You can either order separate items such as Pancakes, Waffles or Zaatar Eggs or go for one of the packages such as the Continental or Eggs Benedict that include your choice of coffee and freshly squeezed orange juice.
I decided on Eggs Royal (38 AED, including coffee and juice) which consisted of Poached eggs, smoked salmon and sautéed spinach on a toasted English muffin, topped with hollandaise sauce and served with roasted baby potatoes. It was super fresh tasting, the salmon and sauce being particularly delicious.
Hubster opted for the Lebanese breakfast (42 AED including Turkish coffee and juice) this was an assortment of Lebanese breakfast staples including low-fat minted labneh, grilled halloumi, fresh vegetables and black olives that came served with mini zaatar manakeesh & pita bread. The staff were happy to change the coffee to his choice of Cappuccino, he very much enjoyed his selection although declared he would have liked a slightly bigger portion and a better selection of Olives (he’s a bit of an Olive connoisseur!)
It seems we really had worked up quite a appetite as we were not done yet! The food was so delicious that we just wanted to try as much as possible and so decided to share an additional order of Apple Cinnamon, Walnut Burrito (16 AED) a wonderful ooey, gooey combination of caramelized apple, cinnamon, walnut & peanut butter all wrapped up in a hot whole-wheat burrito. It was divine and we totally didn’t regret the order although it’s fair to say that lunch was firmly off the menu!
Nathalie’s also offers a selection of sandwiches, salads and cakes along with a daily rotating choice of hot dishes available for eat in, takeaway or delivery. The emphasis is on freshly prepared wholesome food from local suppliers and this shows in the quality of the taste, which will no doubt keep us coming back. We have tried a number of weekend breakfast options in Abu Dhabi and so far Nathalie’s is one of our top spots for a quality leisurely Saturday morning munch.
Forget about “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” and put “Breakfast at Nathalie’s” on your list, I doubt you will regret it.
Nathalie’s is located at;
Open daily; Sun – Thurs 8am – 8pm, Fri 8am – 4pm & Sat 8am – 6pm
Peace and Love
