Location and contact

A beloved landmark of New York's charming West Village, Magnolia Bakery opened its first international location in Dubai in February 2010 as part of Bloomingdale's Home-Dubai, The Dubai Mall. The original Bleecker Street bakery opened in 1996 and is often credited with starting the modern day cupcake craze with its signature pastel-colored buttercream-frosted versions. Synonymous with cupcakes, Magnolia Bakery creates everything fresh from scratch on premises, all day, every day, using the finest ingredients and specializes in classic American baked goods including red velvet cake, icebox cake and banana pudding. Currently Magnolia Bakery has 3 locations in UAE.

Great fresh food option. Just found the food they serve - thought is was just cakes before but go in, get a table and order. Highly recommend Chicken and Mushroom pie with house salad addition. On Entertainer as well - fresh food and great service

Dropped in for a quick bite to eat and found the service friendly and relatively quick. We had salads - the beetroot one being amazing! Not being a coffee aficionado we both found it fine - nothing bad to report as others have. It's coffee...More

We came for lunch, it took some time to get the order (it came al separately). I found plastic wrapping inside my toad with cheese, they didn’t even apologize after I complained.

If you are looking for a sweet treat head to Magnolia Bakery in Galleria Mall. Beside the tasty and beautifully decorated cupcakes there are cake slices, puddings and cookies. If sweet isn't your thing check out their delicious menu

Situated in the Galleria Mall, this place is reasonably well priced and the cakes are tasty. That said although the staff are cheerful, the dining room's a bit dark and plasticy.

We revisited the cafe during Eid (Mon) evening for some coffee and dessert. We ordered a carrot cake (AED30), americano (AED13) and a latte (AED18). The carrot cake was fresh and delicious. However the americano wasn't good while the latte was mediocre.
