Abu Dhabi's Cafe No. 57 is a local hotspot that offers a luxe and cultural high tea service. In recent months, the ancient tradition has re-emerged in hotels and eateries across the globe in an effort to appeal to lovers of luxury.
Unlike fashionable and fairytale-themed afternoon teas that feature niche themes and an abundance of Instagram-worthy elements, Cafe No. 57's cultural high tea menu is more subdued and relies on authenticity.
The cafe's elegant tea menu is nevertheless just as luxurious as others around the globe but zones in on local Middle Eastern tea and coffee blends that are expertly paired with brunch favorites from England, Italy and France. The coffee house blends menu items like herbal lavender teas with mozarella and tomato sandwiches, brioche buns and tasty scones.
