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 goji berry muesli combo, avocado-cottage cheese toast and hot banana bread will fill you with joy. In case of a bigger appetite during the day, a tajine-like squash and wild rice chicken salad, caramelised vegetable wrap and squash and giant tiger prawn 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!
