The latest café in downtown
Always on the hunt to visit fancy new outlets in the Capital, we were impatient to try the new café that opened late December 2014 in the first Courtyard by Marriott in Abu Dhabi.
Walking around World Trade Center mall, we had been intrigued by the interesting design of the hanging rattan egg chairs. So, when we got a dinner invitation from Fifth Street Café to get an overview of their menu, it was an opportunity not to be missed.
The colorful decor makes this space lively and we couldn’t help but admire the uber-casual look of the staff, that adds to the relaxed and cozy vibe. The concept of the menu is all about home-cooked recipes with products sourced locally.
We especially enjoyed the savory waffles topped with spicy chicken, the heirloom tomato salad served along with a tasty burrata and balsamic topping for the starters. For our main, amongst the different bites, we will go back for their melt in the mouth seabass served with potatoes and olives. To end the meal on a sweet note, we would definitely recommend the pistachio and date tart (a must try) and the chocolate walnut brownie.
Though we are surrounded by plenty of food options, we have the feeling this casual and friendly spot will fill a gap in the market with its trendy, young vibe. A place to head to anytime for any occasion : a breakfast with friends in town, a healthy lunch in between shopping at WTC or business meetings.
Need another incentive? We were told office workers in the surrounding towers regularly stop by the café before work for breakfast or to order a fresh and tasty salad that they come and get at lunchtime, which is obviously a good sign.
Free Wi-Fi available for all customers in the café
