The lockdown gave us time to really up our game and make the best out of a sticky situation. The public response this past year has been incredible and we love that Brunch & Cake has managed to create an appeal for all groups whether it be Dubai local or expat residents as well as tourists alike. It is due to this love for the brand that we have decided to expand further in Dubai and also Abu Dhabi where a lot of Brunch & Cake lovers already reside.
