Located in Barsha, this cute little cafe serves shakes, mojitos, crepes and fruit salads.
Ambiance: The cafe is really compact but so beautifully decorated that it gives an illusion that it is super spacious. I love the green leaf accent wall which is really good aesthetics. The place is well lit and quite clean. You are served in disposable cutlery which to be honest I do not know if I am such a huge fan of.
Service: My greatest disappointment of coming here was the fact that the service was SO poor. The person serving us was so extremely rude and just wanted to get over with serving us. He made us feel so uncomfortable while asking for a bottle of water. I just wanted to eat quick and leave. Felt very terrible. I wrote a mail to the person who invited us and also DM-ed them on IG – it has been a month and no reply at all. Not even an apology.
Price: 60 – 80AED approx for two.
What we had;
Lotus [22AED]: We ordered this thinking it was the biscoff lotus shake but we were mistaken. This was a mix of strawberry and mango with ice cream. The drink was quite good consistency wise and even the flavours were decent. It was super refreshing and not heavy at all.
Nutella Milkshake [22AED]: This shake was really delectable! It was thick, rich and so chocolatey – we loved it. The M size is good enough as it gets quite heavy and you might need two people to finish it off.
Cheese and Turkey Crepe [22AED]: I think the price for this was quite steep. I did not enjoy this crepe. The turkey, cheese and crepe combination was not going through well. They also topped it up with some oregano powder.
First Love [23AED]: This crepe was so damn good! It was filled with nutella strawberry and bananas. The best combination in the world! I also added some kinder [3AED] and some ice cream [3AED]. It was absolutely delicious and extremely filling. I would not mind paying 23AED for pure goodness.
Miami [23AED]: This crepe was filled with white chocolate, strawberry and nuts. We replaced nuts with some kinder [3AED] and some lotus [3AED] drizzle. If you think the previous crepe was my favourite.. you are mistaken. This was was hands down the best thing I tried that day. The lotus and kinder combination along with some strawberries blew my mind! I completely recommend you this variant of the crepes at YMI.
Fruit Salad W/ Ice Cream [22AED]: This was just about alright. The fruits were extremely cold and some fruits such as strawberry I felt were even borderline frozen. You can miss out on this one.
Final Thoughts: Just as much as I love their crepes, I am truly disappointed with their customer service. No one has bothered to even reach out to me.
