It’s so good it’s bad but, oh boy, is it sweet!
Got a sweet tooth? The biggest Magnolia Bakery in the world is right here in the UAE and it’s got us licking our lips!
OK, so you’ll need to head to Abu Dhabi – the Big Apple’s cake palace has opened shop at newly extended The Galleria Al Maryah Island.
Sitting on a 2,614 square-metre space and with 70 seats, the bakery delivers an army of signature treats — from decorated cakes to cupcakes and of course, its famed banana pudding.
Savouries are on the menu too – all-day breakfasts, omelettes, pancakes, sandwiches and salads, fries and even Middle Eastern staple fatteh.
You can burn it all off afterwards by browsing some of the mall’s 250 shops. There are brands including Zara, Virgin Megastore, Decathlon, as well as more places to stuff your face, including The Cheesecake Factory and Blaze Pizza, which is co-owned by NBA superstar LeBron James.
The Galleria Al Maryah Island, Abu Dhabi. 02 616 6999. Magnolia Bakery open Saturday-Wednesday 7.30am-11pm, Thursday 7.30am-11pm and Friday 9am-midnight.
