Dubai’s artisan dessert boutique Kayu Bakehouse is opening in London  



International outposts can be found in Abu Dhabi and Riyadh.

London, you’re in for a foodie treat. Dubai’s Kayu Bakehouse is coming to the capital in October. The artisan boutique specialises in French desserts, and it is opening on Curzon Street’s Shepherd Market. So, if you love pastries ranging from brioche to croissants, here’s what you need to know. 

The Kayu Bakehouse in London menu prides itself on using only natural ingredients. The desserts are Insta-beautiful and a hit on social media – the Instagram account has 71,000 followers and counting. The menu will include Double Chocolate Brioche, Eclairs, Macarons, Mousse chocolat, Mosaic Roll Cake and Raspberry Cream Cheese Croissants. We’re hoping that it serves the signature items from other outposts, which include Mille-feuille with layers of cream, custard and vanilla, and Animation Citron with lemon, cream and white chocolate. 

So far, we know that Kayu Bakehouse in London will be a sophisticated spot. The café will have high-end finishes, including marble furnishings imported from Greece to reflect the upmarket Mayfair locale.

Kayu Bakehouse started in the United Arab Emirates and can be found in Abu Dhabi and Dubai. The name is a nod to someone who is detailed, meticulous and works in engineering, mathematics or science. The moniker is fitting for the concept and its creator.

Chef Karim Bourgi is behind the brand. He graduated from Le Cordon Bleu Paris, and trained at French restaurants. Over his career, he has worked on the opening of La Maison Du Chocolat Paris in Dubai and Kuwait. He opened Hermes Paris Café in the Fashion Avenue in Dubai Mall. Plus, he works as a private consultant and instructor for pastry masterclasses around the world.
