Cafe Review – The Hamptons Cafe

A touch of Coastal Village:
The Hamptons Cafe is part of a small family owned chain in Dubai that was established in 2014. Standing three stories proud, the cafe incorporates European and American roots into their cooking and boasts simplistic yet delicious dishes.

Upon Arrival:
We can’t remember a time when we walked into the Hamptons Cafe and it wasn’t full. The atmosphere of the cafe is always buzzing with all three floors completely occupied. The setup of the cafe is breathtakingly elegant and sophisticated with white hues and beach vibes.

Our Brunch:
We started off our meal with our favorite Rose Latte which is a must have. If you fancy fragrant coffees that aren’t too sweet, then you’re bound to love this one. We also tried the Candy Hot Chocolate that looked absolutely indulgent. To our surprise, the hot chocolate wasn’t as heavy and sweet as we were expecting it to be.
As we sipped on our coffee we glanced through our iPad menus to decide our mains.

We ended up ordering the Sea Bass and the Buttermilk Fried Chicken. Unfortunately, the wait for our mains was agonizingly long (around 45-50 minutes) but luckily for us, we had our coffee and hot chocolate to tame our growling tummies.
The Buttermilk Fried Chicken may not probably be one of the best we’ve had, but nevertheless it was delicious. We loved the crispy skin that was seasoned perfectly, however the chicken itself wasn’t as juicy as we’d like it to be. Also, the portions are huge – good enough for two people to share.

We also loved the grilled Sea Bass Fillet with smashed charlotte potatoes and leeks, caramelized fennel and seafood bisque. The flavors in this dish were clean and exquisite. We also loved how perfectly flaky the sea bass was as it melted in our mouths. We’d highly recommend this dish if you love seafood.

We couldn’t leave the Hamptons without dessert, and after hearing so much about the Black Forest Dome, we couldn’t resist not ordering it. The dessert is a play on a classic Black Forest Gateau that is plated using different forms and textures of chocolate. The dessert comprised of crumbly chocolate soil, crispy praline feuillantine, soft flourless chocolate cake, juicy Amarena cherries and creamy vanilla parfait, all encased in a gold dusted chocolate dome. The dessert was absolutely delicious – not too heavy yet perfectly rich. We loved how the flavors of this dessert had a very strong resemblance to the flavors of a traditional black forest cake. Needless to say this dessert was devoured within minutes.
