Originally established in 1990, Mister Baker has been one of Dubai’s top leading bakeries– with several locations in various areas of the UAE. The bakery is well-known for its various baked offerings, but especially for cakes.
Mister Baker’s menu and inventory is extensive. With the bakery’s focus on supplying for celebrations, it not only deals in baked goods but also in party supplies, like greeting cards and paper cups.
The main selling point of Mister Baker is its variety of specially themed cakes, serving various events. The designs of the cakes it sells range everywhere from classic themes to various brands from pop culture.
Should a customer not be satisfied with the ready-made cakes, however, then Mister Baker is also very accommodating of customized cakes. The options are limitless for customization, from the cake base to the design.
We have also found that this is all supported by the very smooth ordering process from Mister Baker. The website even features an extensive order form for specially customized cakes, along with forms to get in touch with their cake artists.
That being said, Mister Baker also lacks smaller size options for ready-made cakes. This does make the overall price a lot higher for some designs if you’re not ordering for a group or family
Some customers have also noted that the delivery times tend to fluctuate, with a few deliveries coming in a bit late. We hope the store can improve on this and we recommend ordering early for now as a result.
Overall, we recommend Mister Baker as a good bakery to stop by, especially for those looking for customized cakes for any event– from birthdays to weddings. We think you’ll definitely enjoy it!
The cake varieties and options are immense
“Certainly this is the most sought after bakery and has been consistently keeping up with the equality requirements. The cake varieties and options are immense and they supply custom ordered designs too.” – Ashoka Narayanan
They carry varieties of flavors and designs
“They carry varieties of flavors and designs in their cakes. They provide Professional service, I would definitely recommend to everyone to give it a try. Value for Money.” – Samson Fernandes
2. KAYU Bakehouse
|MENU||Tea Time, Croissanterie, Signatures, Macarons, Tarts|
|ADDRESS||KAYU Bakehouse Shop 8, Manazil Nad Al Sheba 1, Dubai|
|CONTACT DETAILS||+971 4393 0366|
|OPERATING HOURS||Mondays - Thursdays: 8:00 AM to 8:00 PM
Fridays - Sundays: 8:00 AM to 9:00 PM
|CUSTOMER SERVICE||★★★★☆ (4.5/5)|
The KAYU Bakehouse bills itself as an artisan boutique, located at Nad Al Sheba and specializing in authentic, fresh French desserts and pastries. This small, out of the way bakery is known especially for its rich ambiance and high quality products.
With a team led by artisan pastry chef Karim Bourgi, the bakery contains a variety of French classics and signatures, from flaky croissants and millefeuilles packed with cream.
We found the products to be well-presented, matching perfectly with the bakery’s interior and glass displays. The products are not only flavorful, but also photogenic, which we think is always a plus.
The bakery takes pride in their use of fresh ingredients and we personally find the aroma from the pastries to be quite nice. They’ve also got a good flakiness and softness to them which we think is great for kids too.
KAYU Bakehouse itself is also a good place to catch a quick break at, with its sparse, modern and minimal interior and devotion to its theme as a French bakery.
That being said, KAYU Bakehouse is quite out of the way from the main road, and has a fairly small shop space– which means there’s not much seating to be found.
Additionally, the bakery also doesn’t do deliveries, despite the difficulty of dining in-store. We think this might make it hard to order something from them to send as a surprise to someone.
Despite that, we still highly recommend KAYU Bakehouse, especially for fans of French pastries. We think you’ll definitely enjoy the quality of the products in this small yet amazing bakery in Dubai.
Small shop but big flavors
“Small shop but big flavors. Cakes are a bit pricey, however the flavors are amazing. You won’t regret it. I’m happy I found a bakery like the ones you can find in France.” – Sabine Martinique
A pleasure to all the senses
“Kayu offers some of the best cakes and desserts in Dubai, and all the menu is worth trying. But the Chouquette XL is from another galaxy. It’s a piece of art, a pleasure to all the senses.” – Jaber M.
3. Milk Bakery
|MENU||Full Cakes & Cheesecake, Dessert Trays
Puddings & Trifles, Cookies, Viennoiserie
|ADDRESS||Wasl 51 building, Al Wasl Rd, Jumeirah, Jumeirah 1, Dubai|
|CONTACT DETAILS||+971 55 774 4441|
|OPERATING HOURS||Sundays - Thursdays: 7:30 AM to 12:00 AM
Fridays - Saturdays: 7:30 AM to 1:00 AM
|CUSTOMER SERVICE||★★★★☆ (4/5)|
With a location at the heart of Downtown Dubai, the Milk Bakery bills itself as a homely, neighborhood bakery– baking, brewing and bringing people together since it was first established.
The bakery doubles as a modern desserts shop and cafe, featuring a dessert bar and a coffee bar. The prominent feature of milk in both sides of the cafe is where it gets its namesake, along with its specialized desserts.
The Milk Bakery’s location lends to its ambiance, with a very pleasing view of the fountain outside. It also has access to parking spots both in front and behind the shop, making it easily accessible for those traveling by car.
Inside, we found the Milk Bakery to be very relaxing. The clean, white interior, offset by spots of green from the indoor plants gave it a modern but homely feel, making it a great meeting spot for friends or coworkers.
Another great point for the bakery is its extensive menu, ranging from the classic baked goods to a good amount of breakfast items and goods. They even offer a special gathering box for their viennoiserie items, which is nice value for money.
Dining in does take a while though, especially once more and more customers come in. We think busier people may want to pop in at the end of the day instead to avoid the rush.
Another thing we do want to note though is that the music can be quite loud which we think may not be as relaxing to other diners. In our opinion, they can turn down the sounds a bit for a gentler ambiance.
With all that in mind, the MILK Bakery is definitely one of our recommendations for good baked products, as well as a good place to meet up with friends and loved ones for any kind of casual get-together.

4. Habib Bakery
|MENU||Cakes, Gift Boxes, Baklava, Savouries, Cream Puff & Donuts|
|ADDRESS||Ground Floor, Habib Building, Opp. Abu Hail Clinic، Al Rasheed Road, Hor Al Anz, Deira, 17 13A St, Hor Al Anz, Dubai|
|CONTACT DETAILS||+971 52 229 9311|
|OPERATING HOURS||Open 24 hours, 7 days a week|
|CUSTOMER SERVICE||★★★★☆ (4/5)|
The Habib Bakery, originally established in 1987, is one of the region’s oldest and most reliable bakeries, delivering to locations all over the UAE. The bakery specializes in a varied amount of baked products and other goods.
Its inventory features sweet desserts, like custom cakes and cream puffs, alongside other, more savory offerings, like baklavas and crackers. For ease of navigating its wide selection, they also offer bespoke gift boxes of their goods.
We have also found that the Habib Bakery’s prices were very affordable– coupled with the large amounts of their products found at the store, customers are sure to never run out of whatever they might be looking for.
The Habib Bakery’s location at Hor Al Anz is also easily within reach of most forms of public transport, especially through the bus thanks to its proximity to a local bus stop, which is very convenient.
The interior of the bakery is also well-organized, resembling a supermarket at times, with glass displays of their products lining the floors. While this aids in navigating it, customers may also easily approach the staff, who are willing to help guide them.
Customers can also have their orders delivered but, some people report waiting around an hour before they were able to get their baked goods.
We also think they can improve on their phone service a bit more. We waited at least a couple of minutes before we were able to get someone to ask about the status of the orders.
Overall, we would recommend dropping by the Habib Bakery for a visit, especially for customers seeking to buy large amounts of products and are hoping for variety with their baked goods.

5. The Hummingbird Bakery
|MENU||Cakes, Cupcakes, Gift Boxes, Cheesecakes
Tray Bakes & Whoopie Pies
|ADDRESS||Lower Ground Level, Dubai Mall, Downtown Dubai, Dubai|
|CONTACT DETAILS||+971 800 42473|
|OPERATING HOURS||Sundays - Wednesdays: 10:00 AM to 11:00 PM
Thursdays - Fridays: 10:00 AM to 12:00 AM
|CUSTOMER SERVICE||★★★★★ (5/5)|
With a specialization in American home-style baked goods and sweets, the Hummingbird Bakery has been a steady presence in Dubai’s baking scene, coming all the way from London where it was established in 2004.
The Hummingbird Bakery is known mostly for its sweets and American home baking, especially its cupcakes. Its presence in Dubai is also backed up by its wide variety of cakes that are both flavorful and pleasing to the eye.
Do note though that the cupcakes and cakes here lean a lot on the sweet side. Personally, we didn’t mind them though some people may find the sweetness to be a bit overpowering.
We found that the bakery’s interior is very striking, with black and neon pink accents to offset their glass display of products. The bakery is also surprisingly wheelchair-accessible, with a separate seating area available for them.
The staff are also very proactive, offering assistance and guidance if needed. Should one run into any problems with their order, they are quick to help in sorting the issue out, which is always a relief.
This is all backed up by the ordering process in the Hummingbird Bakery, which is very smooth and easy to navigate, especially through their website, where each product’s options, serving suggestions and even customization is offered.
Portions are a little small though, especially when it comes to individual cake slices. From what we saw, most people actually order two if they want a more filling meal.
With all that in mind, the Hummingbird Bakery is definitely a good bakery to stop by for sweet tooths out there. It’s a nice little shop to settle in with a good book, a cake slice, and a nice, hot cup of coffee.
