Our Lazy Hazy Summer Breakfast in Q8…


In the mood to celebrate our new future? I have just the place for you!

Warning, if ur not a morning person, or if you thrive on sitting somewhere where u can stare at other fellow q8y’s, this is not the place for u…

Friday morning, early morning, weather is sunny with a hint of sweet air teasing  ur face and nose, every thing is lazy, relaxed… the weekend has just started, and ur in the mood for change…

and change starts with breakfast.

and no one in Q8 does breakfast like Casper & Gambini’s do!


I simply ADORE capser, every thing about them is good, the style, the witt, the good dishes, the yummy food, the fresh ingredients, their freshly baked baugettes incapsulating yummy fillings, their quirky gifts they sometimes slip in ur daily order, their prompt efficient service, and the selection of fascinating never ending good groumet coffee…

How could anyone not fall in love?!

So, obviosuly, last friday, i decided i wanted to go to casper & gambinis for breakfast.

and i chose the one in Marina Crescent…

Za3tar Rolls Served with our order...

What i love about marina Crescent now adays is it has transformed into what seems to be a UN sanctuary… all the brits and americans and europeans who had been shying away from the q8y population have stretched out and took over the place… u no longer have to drive into f7ai7eel to feel u have been transformed into a european country…

 Our order in pictures…

More pictures below, but let me pain the scene more for u…

So imagine this, cool sunny weather, outside tables over looking the sea, no q8ys around, a table with germans yapping away happily next to you, a couple of british gals jogging with their blonde ponytails on the shore, some americans passing by, not even glancing ur way and disecting u into million little pieces… the place is crowded, yet ur completly alone, no one cares if u were dressed like crusty the clown!!! Ur free…

and u have the yummiest food EVER!

and news papers tooo!




So what are u waiting for?!

    you have a wonderful taste in food and presentation, and it shows all over your recommendations… but i think we’re leaving out something very important … to complement the atmosphere… ala wahwa…
    MUSIC !!
    at Nino avenues for example i had to ask them over 3 times to turn down the music abit cos i couldn’t hear what the girl next to me says…
    at LeNotre once they played some jungle soundtrack where u could hear monkeys in the background (felt a bit odd !!)
    and in villa fairooz they play fairooz music all the time faa imagine how heavenly it must have felt…
    even during shopping… when i’m at a store… it literally alters my mood when i walk into a shop and hear something nice coming in (sometimes i walk out of a store cos the music is too loud and oh so annoying)..
    once i walked into one shop and when Elissa started singing the saleslady literally fell into tears… it was something about the song … poor girl…
    faa … my culinary experience can never be complete without it… we have 5 senses to savor the flavor… not only i want the restaurant to compliment my taste buds… there are my ear buds (not the cotton ones !)
