South African fine-dining cafe and diner concept Walnut Grove has opened its second store in Dubai. Their first branch is located in CityWalk, and their newer and arguably more prominent location is in the heart of The Dubai Mall, right by the waterfalls.

The savvy, brightly lit cafe looks delightfully inviting with its Parisian-inspired interiors but the real highlight of the new branch is its spacious outdoor seating area that boasts of a stunning view of the Dubai Fountains and the mighty Burj Khalifa.

Zuccero is Italian for sugar, and we were on a sugar-high mid afternoon this Friday! Conceptualized and created by a cupcake dreamer around 5 years ago, Zuccero has long been a cafe favorite among Ajman dwellers and has finally opened a branch in Festival City, Dubai.

Zuccero is all things girly, and I love the shabby chic decor of the premises. From the Parisian stripes in the logo to the very kitsch little decor items lining the little shelves around the parameters, Zuccero provides the perfect setting for a lady-like afternoon tea with the girlfriends.
