Arrows and Sparrows: Good Greens living.

Having visited Friends Avenue earlier in the year, I was very excited to see what offers were available at sister property Arrows and Sparrows.  Winding my way through the Greens (the scene of cherished days from many years past), I parked in the adjacent parking lot (make sure you keep your ticket to get validated before leaving) and walked to the shady side of a business building (outdoor seating available in this lovely weather).

The menu at Arrows and Sparrows, like many a cafe, is not reinventing the wheel, but instead offers a few creative takes on the classics.  For example, while I tend to find a full English breakfast a bit heavy, I found the ‘local’ inspired breakfast (a DEAL at AED42, including a filling combination of sourdough toast, poached eggs, hummus, salad, tapenade, salad, minced lamb and halloumi) to be exactly what I was looking for.  Meanwhile, across the table, my dining partner’s Miss Benedict AED44) also looked like a treat — the traditional hollandaise is made pink with the introduction of beetroot, and the large plate also includes sautéed asparagus and kale.  Our drinks were on point, with an iced latte and lemonade as lovely accompaniments to the brunch.  As with many a similar restaurant, the breakfast menu is served weekdays until 1 PM and weekends until 3 PM, so there is no rush to get out of bed.  Having a peek at the remainder of the menu, I found a number of items I would be happy to come back and try.

Other than being a bit cold inside (bring a jumper) and the music a bit too loud (shouting at 11 AM seems a bit unnecessary), this was a very well spent AED60.

Would I go back?  Sure thing!  It’s a cute spot for a meet up with friends, and I love supporting local businesses.
