We can’t quite work out if the short distance to the kitchen convinced us we’re all pastry chefs, or if it was the barrage of unavoidable drool-worthy content on social media these days… Either way, let’s not kid ourselves! Nothing beats a seriously good dessert from the real deal, be it a fluffy sponge cake or a gluttonous banoffee pudding.
No more finding flour footprints on your newly cleaned rug, or smears of icing on your cupboard handles, ditch the cleanup and whip no more than your phone out of your pocket, as we serve you some seriously delectable local companies to deliver yummy desserts during lock-down for guilt-free feasting (treat yourself! It’s a lock-down).
This family-owned and family-friendly café based in JLT is a big hit for parents of little ones owing to their kid-friendly menu, curated birthday parties and in-house play corner. Now you can have their cake and eat it too! (Corona – 0)
Along with their made-to-order decorative cakes and famous fresh from the oven German baked goods, you may order for delivery across limited locations within Dubai. We’d recommend trying their famous baked cheesecake or chocolate cookies.

Tania’s Tea House
Tania’s Tea House has been voted the 7th most instagramable cafe in the world and just because you can’t make it to the pink paradise that on the Beach Road, it doesn’t mean that they can’t make it to you. Adapting to current times to ensure their family-run business thrives, Tania’s Tea House has seen great success with their recently launched delivery boxes.
As they continue to encourage customers to ‘stay home and ‘stay safe ‘ the team concocted some incredibly creative fun boxes to ensure that no important milestone is forgotten. Boxes range, but one of our faves is their family-sized box of desserts which include 4 Mini Earl Grey Scones, 4 Quarantine Cookies, 4 Mini Eclairs, 4 Mini Brownies and 4 Mini Tarts (and that’s just for me). They’re even able to cater to vegans too (upon request).
