The place is quite surprising: a gigantic loft with exposed ducts and waxed concrete floors, very reminiscent of Brooklyn or Shoreditch. But no, you are without doubt in Dubai, in the Al Quoz industrial district to be exact, slowly but surely transforming into the capital's trendiest neighbourhood. Originally from Australia and Spain respectively, Tom Arnel and Sergio Lopez have teamed up to create this astonishing place. If the coffee is king, you will also find various other fresh and seasonal products for which some locals do not hesitate driving some distance.
If you come to Tom & Serg for breakfast, the dragon fruit acai bowl with coconut and banana yoghurt combo served with French toast in salted butter caramel and Turkish poached eggs will fill you with joy. In case of a bigger appetite during the day, a falafel salad, a satay grilled chicken served with sweet potato fries or even the gnocchi with dried tomatoes are the best answers. For those who wish something else than coffee, no problem, as they will have their pick between freshly squeezed juices ranging from watermelon to pomegranate, apple, strawberry, lime and cucumber… Fresh and tasty!
