Would you eat concrete cake? You can at this Dubai cafe...
But only until the end of August…
A coffee shop in Dubai has started offering a concrete cake to its customers. Rx Coffee in Jumeirah 2 is serving the dessert for a limited time and has fans on social media singing its praises. Rx Coffee, which is known for its unusual and creative concoctions, shared a photo of the intriguing pudding, which one person described as the ‘best milk cake ever’ in the comments.
Describing the cake, a spokesperson from the team told What’s On, “The idea was inspired by the constant sounds of trucks piling concrete across our cafe, [we wanted to] launch a dessert that would captivate you at first glance and gravitate you to Rx Coffee.”
While the flavours of the cake are only known to those who have tasted it, we’re told it’s a huge hit with the guests so far. Originally, the limited edition dessert was going to be available until August 16, but due to high demand the cake will stay until the end of August.

The cafe, which opened in December 2018, describes itself as an apothecary and kitchen, offering a prescription for mind, body and soul. On their takeaway coffee cups you’ll find inspirational quotes and messages, as Rx strives to make Dubai a happier and more positive city.
On the menu you’ll find a range of tempting breakfast items and creative desserts, including churros & honey pudding and a selection of salads and sandwiches. There’s also a variety of different coffee options, whether you’re looking for chemex, V60, aeropress, syphon or cold drip.
