Love Tom&Serg? Find out where and when the team are expanding
What’s On has location details of Tom and Serg new venture called The Sum Of Us, near World Trade Centre. Tom&Serg in Al Quoz is one of Dubai’s best cafes.
The team behind Dubai’s coolest cafe hotspot are branching out, and What’s On has the skinny (latte) on exactly what’s next for Tom Arnel and Serg Lopez.
The dynamic duo, better known as Tom&Serg have, in less than a year, turned an empty unit in Al Quoz into a place where queuing for a table for just half an hour could be considered a small victory. It’s a bona fide hipster hangout serving up quirky, interesting breakfasts with astoundingly good coffee from expert baristas. And now they have turned attentions to a second unit that they hope to open before the winter months.
Those who had hoped to see an extension of the iftar the Al Quoz venue is currently running – ‘Rule The Roast’ – will be let down. Diners can, for the month of July, choose from roast meat, hammour or a veggie option – all served with tasty trimmings and ‘crazy gravy’. Dessert options include apple crumble and saucy chocolate pudding.
But for their new project, the boys are sticking with what they know best. Called ‘The Sum Of Us’, it will be a “specialty coffee and food project” and is set to be double the size of the current cafe space, with an outdoor terrace included. Situated close to Trade Centre roundabout on Sheikh Zayed Road, it will be easily accessible via the World Trade Centre metro station. Nearby hotels include The H Dubai, Fairmont and Conrad.
Passionate about every aspect, from painstakingly sourcing paper straws to getting the coffee combos just so, the enthusiasm of these guys has captured the imagination and appetite of Dubai’s cool crowd. And we fully expect them to do it again.
