A chocolate lovers delight, the DipnDip Chocolate Café is a dream come true for chocoholics. Created by two friends who shared a vision to make chocolate desserts that were both unique and fun.

Home Bakery was founded by Hind Al Mulla in the kitchen of her home and was born out of a natural love of baking custom cakes in Dubai and a pure passion for desserts. The bakery grew in size due to the large social media following that couldn’t get enough of the irresistible desserts. The increase in demand for the delicious desserts that range from cakes and cookies to pastries and tarts, evolved the company from a small, home kitchen, to a large commercial business and in 2015, the Home Bakery flagship store was opened in Dubai. Every dessert made by Home Bakery is handmade to perfection, with great pride taken in the baking, presentation, and delivery of each product.
