Feeding Dubai resident’s desire for home-style fresh and natural food, Sophie’s is a cozy cafe that serves healthy meals throughout the day. It also has Gluten Free Bakery Items and pretty good tasting ones at that!
Their ready meals are served on a rotating basis with the menu changing every 2 days. It includes salads, dips, mains, cakes and pastries. Everything is created in house concentrating on the fact that it is made with local and organic produce.
We got to experience some of their dishes and considering how healthy everything was, the food was pretty good, especially for residents in the area who would like to grab a quick, light meal.
They also have a range of fresh pressed juices which are bottled are available in store. Along with this they carry healthy smoothies, wheatgrass shots and 100% organic & 100% Fair Trade fresh coffee and handcrafted organic tea blends.
*Please note we asked them to serve us small portions just for tasting purposes and the actual quantities are larger.
We had Spanish Tortilla which was light and filled with potato. It’s best when had hot. Along with this we tried the Vegan Aubergine Balls which was made in a tomato gravy and quite flavourful. Very healthy and has a tangy taste.
We also tried the Pumkin Hummus which was fluffy and unique. Usually you can pick any bread to go along with it as they have a range of healthy breads.
Another main we tried was the Stuffed Capsicum with rice. This was served cold and was supposed to be eaten that way. It was delicious and the coldness somehow enhanced the flavour.
For dessert we tried the Malibu Cake which was amazing! Very light and fluffy and you would think it was home made. Along with that we also tried a cookie which was light and not too sweet.
The Carrot Cake which was given to us by the manager as one of their popular sellers was light and airy with a nice cream filling.
I also tried a shot of the Wheatgrass ad i generally have the same at home. This one was squeezed fresh in front of me from the plant which was kept in display. It was served with pineapple to remove the bitter aftertaste which wheatgrass generally has. It has a lot of health benefits and I was very happy to see it available here.
An original concept, Sophie’s is your one stop shop for all healthy eats! I’m sure a lot of you will love the variety it has to offer and the ever changing menu.
