The vi­brant ware­house-style café with ex­posed pipework, de­lib­er­ately messy paint jobs and scuffed floor­ing feels right at home in the in­dus­trial Al Qouz area. The restau­rant is the brain­child of Ser­gio Lopez, the F&B oper­a­tions direc­tor from Madrid and Tom Ar­nel, a chef from Melbourne.

Nat­u­rally, the first item you must try from the all-day break­fast menu is the ex­cel­lent Aus­tralian Bene­dict in which the poached eggs are doused in gribiche hol­landaise and topped with shred­ded wagyu beef. Need more meat? Turn to the Breaky Bao with suc­cu­lent beef that leaves a happy mess on your fin­gers and plate in its wake.

The sour­dough crum­pets are another pop­u­lar item on the menu with a beau­ti­fully plated prepa­ra­tion of salmon, sour­dough bread, let­tuce, and a Le­banese cu­cum­ber salsa that’s re­ally the ace in­gre­di­ent of the dish. To end on a sug­ary note, try the salted caramel French toast, which has bits of rhubarb, black cherry and some sticky caramel. If cof­fee is more your thing, they’ve el­e­vated the ex­pe­ri­ence with Colom­bian, Brazil­ian, Ugan­dan and In­done­sian of­fer­ings served us­ing dif­fer­ent meth­ods.

Tom & Serg, 15A Street, Al-Joud Cen­ter, Al Qouz, Near ACE Hard­ware, Sheikh Zayed Road, Dubai. 8am-3.45pm on Sun­days-Thurs­days and 8am-5.45pm on Fri­days and Satur­days.
