French classics including the semolina almond financier, rosewater Paris brest, or lemon tart and signatures include Keller’s famous TKO cookie (Thomas Keller Oreo) and Bouchon Bakery’s bouchons – rich, chocolatey petite brownies filled with semi-sweet chocolate morsels.

Keller’s custom-blended ‘TK by Equator’ coffee, espresso, iced or traditional teas, or hand-crafted hot chocolate will also be on offer.

Identified by its green façade and antique cast iron street lamp, Bouchon Bakery’s were interiors created by designer Adam D. Tihany, a long-time friend and collaborator of Keller’s. The bakery is a traditional interpretation of a French boulangerie, mirroring Keller’s twist on classical French/American cuisine.

Set within The Beach, Jumeirah Beach Residence, Bouchon Bakery is open from 8am to 11pm weekdays and 8am to 12am on weekends.
