Coffee with gold? Yes please!

How do you like your coffee? With milk and sugar? Black? Or with some GOLD?

A tall order? Not at all. With the famous Emirates Palace cappuccino – you get all of that!

If you happen to be in Abu Dhabi, UAE’s swanky capital city (I suggest it is worth visiting just for the coffee), make sure you drop in to the impressive Emirates Palace if only for their signature “gold coffee.”

Head for Le Café coffee shop for this uniquely glittering experience. And you are not expected to pay a small fortune either. At USD 15 or AED50, the Emirates Palace cappuccino is not a bad deal, considering the glittering topping it comes with. This is no ordinary cappuccino. Sure, your cappuccino appears hot and steaming, with an Emirates Palace design on it and splattered with edible gold leaf.
