The Mail Room Sharjah, located just behind the University road, is another new concept & definitely the cutest cafe in the UAE. Interiors of the café feature vintage-inspired décor like a typewriter and antique telephone. The cafe is covered in millennial pink and it’s full of incredible interior design touches. We loved the use of velvet, the wooden cladding and the cute decorations – from vintage vinyl players to the Beauty & The Beast teacup and pot. It’s a visual treat, specially for girls. ..The staff look exactly like “”The Grand Budapest Hotel”” folk, with smart purple uniforms.
Food-wise, it’s all about simple, tasty and honest dishes. As we were there for the new menu tasting, we visited for lunch and ‘Aimee’ our attendant for the day hosted us very well… the new bee on the menu were- “The Shawarma Platter” & “Quinoa Salad”, both were up to the mark. We loved them. Apart from this we also tasted “Pink Truffle Risotto”, “Lamb Chops”, “Crunchy Chicken Sliders”, & “Crispy Lasagna”, every dish was cooked with perfection by the Chef Amit Vichare. Among all my personal favorite was Pink Truffle Risotto. Divine.
Drinks-wise, we couldn’t resist the ‘Love Potion’ Good for two people, this beautiful concoction comes served in a glass bottle, with two flute glasses topped with cotton candy. It’s a delicious and refreshing mix of watermelon and strawberry and highly recommended. We also ordered Iced Cafe Latte, which was also delicious.
& … &… the main attraction of this cafe was served to us … “The Secret Garden”, it’s a desert which is served on a musical rotating base… a big pink cotton candy tree with a small Piano on its side… 3-4 cookies with toppings rested on small small chairs…. three flavors of ice cream served in six small cups … giving it a look of a miniature garden … completely dreamy & yummy too.
To sum up all, this is a must to visit place, a feast for the eyes and will transport you right into The Grand Budapest Hotel mail room. Would love to go again.
