Already big fans of its flagship outpost in Al Safa, The Huntr was keen to check out Home Bakery Kitchen D3. And we fell in love, join us for the full review…
Tucked away in Building 7 at the Dubai Design District (D3), you will find Home Bakery Kitchen – the sister concept to the popular Home Bakery cafes in Al Safa and most recently, Abu Dhabi. This little gem is the brainchild of Emirati Hind Al Mulla, who started the business from her kitchen table – feeding her loyal customers with her delicious baked goods, before opening her first bricks and mortar location at the Galleria Mall in 2014.
Home Bakery Kitchen has the same cosy DNA of its older sister. Think wood, leather and marble elements combining to form Pinterest-worthy interiors, tempting baked goods displayed on the counter and a homey vibe.
Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, Home Bakery also sell whole cakes for special occasions. The Huntr tried two breakfast dishes – the Turkish Simit (35AED), which features a Turkish simit bread filled with feta cheese, Turkish labneh, mixed bell peppers, spinach, mushrooms and poached eggs, topped with a creamy cheesy sauce. The ultimate comfort food. And the classic Eggs Benedict (50AED), which is served on crispy baguette bread here, with a fresh side salad.
From the lunch menu, we ordered the Nachos Salad (35AED) – a filling mix of crispy tortilla chips with chilli ground beef, BBQ beans, guacamole, roasted corn, mixed cheese and a sour cream salad. And the Salmon Tarator with Black Tahini Sauce (65AED), which is comprised of perfectly pink and tender Norwegian salmon, tasty black tahini sauce, a tarator herb mixture and served with sous vide carrots.
You can’t visit a Home Bakery outpost without sampling its bread and butter: The desserts. We tried the signature Chewy Melt Cookies (8AED each), which you absolutely can not miss and the Instagram-perfect freshly baked Rose Croissant (23AED).
Drinks wise there are a variety of speciality coffee and teas on the menu, including mocktails and soft drinks. We ordered the Cappuccino (25AED) and the Rose Latte (20AED). We also sampled the refreshing Coconut Cocktail (25AED).
We found the Home Bakery Kitchen team to be warm and friendly and all and all this is easily one of the best places to get some work done over a cracking cup of coffee, enjoy a hearty breakfast, catch up with friends over a delicious lunch or sit down for a casual weeknight dinner, in D3. Add it to your hitlist here.
