I've no idea how the food tastes. I don't care. There is only one reason to come to lips and it is the hot chocolate selection! Y'know that passage in The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe where we hear a description of Edmund drinking the White Witch's hot chocolate? This is better. Pure distilled ecstasy in a cup that...

Had breakfast here with my partner. Service is very prompt and efficient, the café is very clean and well presented, and the food was very tasty (and the portions were generous). Would definitely go back again, as the menu had a great variety of options for all meals.

Tempted by their beautiful display of cakes and pastries we popped in for a snack. The location is in an open area of the Marina Mall so it's a busy place but the service was good and the eating area was clean and tidy - no dirty tables. (Some UK cafes take note). Gorgeous choice of ice cream. Mmmmm!

The eaterie lies on a concourse of Marina Mall. Abu Dhabi. I was peckish and opted for a continental style breakfast. Cheese croissant, hot coffee, fresh juice, toast and a fresh fruit bowl. Very nice !!

Some of the best cafe food I've ever had. Best place to have a quick bite while you're shopping. It's a tiny place inside the Marina mall.

It's the Wandering Yank here. Mrs. Yank and I had a couple of hours to spend in Marina Mall, and since dinner was 6 hours away, it was best we have a little something. The menu was surprisingly extensive. I tried the Emirati prata and karak combination, and Mrs. Yank had the pumpkin soup and Greek salad. Her reviews were... More

Living in Abu Dhabi, Lips at Marina Mall is one of mine and my husbands favourite places for casually meals. The portion sizes are generous and prices quite reasonable. Staff and friendly and the service is fast. One thing we like is the varied drinks menu which includes a few different hot and cold chocolate/coffee beverages. You can also order... More

Stopped by at Lips the Cafe earlier this afternoon. Well located in the lovely Marina mall, Lips the Cafe is a delightful little spot. The menu is classic - you can get breakfast specials. The desserts are also lovely.

Thank Ibadanboy
