When we start hearing whispers about a bona fide French bakery that exists within our midst, are we going to just hang around and wait for these pastries to find us? Heck no! So we followed our noses to Sheikh Zahed Road behind Um Suquem 3, ready to reap havoc should we find these rumours to be unfounded. Considering ourselves to be experts in the world of croissants, pain au chocolat, brioche and other buttery French delicacies…(sorry, please wipe your screen as we’ve just drooled all over it), we were ready to put the arrogantly named, Crumbs Elysee to the test.

Amazingly, there was already a swarm of customers queuing up outside.

David the baker previously owned the Success bakery in Motor City and worked for 15 years in high-end bakeries and the French Ministries so he’s used to pleasing important people. He’s so keen to bring real French confectionery to Dubai dwellers that he’ll even offer his clients a free delivery to their doorstep any day of the week on purchases of over AED50. Never have Friday croissants and coffee in bed been so gratifying.

Until the 3oth of April, you can also get a box of macarons for any purchase exceeding AED 200 spent at the bakery counter by mentioning Dubai Confidential to David.
For order and home delivery, call David on 05571 88 205.
Crumbs Bakery is located on Sheik Zayed Road in front of Time Square on the opposite side.
