La Gaufrette – Tecom Dubai
After a long time we finally made it to La Gaufrette. The French bistro in the heart of Tecom, Dubai was on our bucket list for far too long. Finally we made it there and met Martin from I Consult Hotels for a glass of fresh Ice Tea. We arrived first and when the waitress passed by we noticed that her name tag was upside down. When mentioning the same to her she looked with eyes wide open, smiled in a cheeky way and said: ‘Well that’s just for fun!’ Mhhh, not an answer nor an attitude we would have expected, but definitely a statement.
The place itself is quite cool. Indoor as well as outdoor seating is available, the furniture held in a French bistro kind of atmosphere. La Gaufrette is open 24 hours a day, which is not that common in Dubai for a place like that. The location is convenient, the offer or snacks, pastries and beverages as expected, the service lacks a bit in terms of speed, communication and showing the right attitude towards guests. A little less laissez-faire and bit more care would made the time spent at La Gaufrette even better.
Thanks for the experience and the delicious Ice Tea.
We will be back, until then have a nice evening and keep exploring, SEB
