Happiness served in a mug - #Breakfast @thelivingroomcafe in #abudhabi ☕
Darling little #australian cafe tucked away inside #khalidiyavillage , perfect for those lazy #weekend mornings. Cozy interiors, attentive service and hearty food 🍽
We had a long chat with the gorgeous owner, Simone, who is #BossBelle personified 👸, juggling a successful business while mothering 7, yes 7, kids! 🤹♀️ What a powerhouse of a woman! ✊ Loved her attention to detail, like making sure the little guests are taken care of; and her dedication to maintaining the intimate feel of this small neighbourhood #cafe . The kind of place where visitors become regulars and where strangers leave as #friends . The familial bond between the front of house staff and management here is obvious and you know that a venture will be a winner when employees are this vested in its success.
We stuffed ourselves silly 🐋 with iced #cappuccino and iced #chocolate , fluffy #pancakes , #bananabread with a #FrenchToast twist and #EggsBenedict , all rounded off with an #Oreo shake and a #lamington , because, well, #Australia ! 😄
The food came in generous portions and while things may have fallen just short of perfection, we really appreciated how Simone sat down with us and listened thoughtfully to our inputs. I want to return simply because of how valued we were made to feel. Now that is customer service at its best!
