Coastal Investment Operations has opened up a rooftop terrace at The Hamptons Café in the Jumeirah district of Dubai.

Featuring three distinctive experiences on each level, Hamptons claims to be Dubai’s first boutique café.

The latest addition, a rooftop terrace, frames some of Dubai’s prominent landmarks into a bird’s-eye view, with Burj Al Arab, Burj Khalifa and the skyline in the close distance. It has been decorated with palm trees and sun protective umbrellas, giving it the look and feel of a typical Palm Beach café.

During the launch event earlier this week, guests were given the first reveal of the Hamptons High Tea Collection which has been crafted by their resident chef, and includes savouries, sweets and refreshments.

“We aim to become a high-end cafe offering a luxurious afternoon tea service that one would expect to find only at a prestigious hotel establishment with the aspiration for our High Tea to become somewhat of an institution in Dubai," said Coastal Investment operations manager Andrew Derrick.

“For our High Tea, we take great pride in making all our breads, scones and pastries in-house, daily.

"A delicate use of herbs and spices, as well as Asian, North African and Middle Eastern ingredients help create our modern afternoon tea delicacies with a twist. Instead of the usual finger sandwiches, you will find delicious open-faced tartines, crostinis and generously-filled mini croissants."
