We ate breakfast at The Sum Of Us restaurant located at the back side Burj Al Salam building (Sheraton Hotel building) near the World Trade Centre roundabout . This is a new bakery, café and roastery that just opened and is run by owners of Tom & Serg (another popular café) and their friends.
The Sum of Of Us specializes in quality casual dining and you can sense it when you arrive at the restaurant. The staff greets and you immediately feel a warm vibe from the baristas, kitchen staff and servers. This sets the mood for a good meal and customer experience.

THE SUM OF US offers breakfast & lunch menus, breads & pastries and selections of coffee. The quality of the food is great and based on our experience as customers, they were prepared very well.
Dubai has plenty of fine dining restaurants already, the aim of The Sum Of Us is to cultivate a friendly home-grown dining atmosphere. You will notice it in the design of their café which is minimal. They want to focus on the food.
