Whimsical pastel decor and “mermaid toast”? We’re sold.
We’re always on the hunt for a new weekend hideaway here in Dubai—and we think we’ve just found our newest one.
And it’s not just the menu that looks set to get people talking; think perfect-for-the-‘Gram decor and slogan tees for sale.
Tania’s Teahouse has just opened on Jumeirah Beach Road (near the Burj Al Arab), and is the brainchild of local entrepreneur Tania Lodi.
The two-storey cafe is stylistically a blend of millennial minimalism and Wes Anderson-worthy pastel furnishings, with rose-gold accents and marble touches.
As you’d expect from the name, there’s a huge focus on everything tea-related, with a range of speciality custom-blended brews on offer (as well as plenty of coffee).
Menu-wise, think picture-perfect dishes such as fruit-studded chia puddings, quinoa superbowls and cakes layered in teacups.
The “mermaid toast”—a slice of bread swirled with pastel-hued cream cheese—is a plate we reckon you’ll be seeing all over your social media this summer.
Currently in its soft-launch phase, the teahouse officially opens for business on April 8, and is set to host pop-ups, crafting classes and mindfulness workshops in the coming months.
Tania’s also features an in-house gift shop, which stocks tea-themed goodies like mugs, bags, and greeting cards (we’re particularly taken with the ‘hey there, habib-tea’ t-shirts).
Well, we know where we’ll be this weekend…
