Lovely new breakfast spot takes edge off all the bad things that happened around the world in 2013

DUBAI: The opening of a new café in Dubai has, according to sources, made up for a year devastated by wars, natural disasters and economic woes.

Residents living close to the French-themed patisserie, which features a menu boasting over 20 different international coffee blends, have been in unanimous agreement that its arrival has helped make up for almost 12 months of tragedy felt across the world.

“You know, after everything that has gone on in 2013 – typhoons in the Philippines, the threat of war with North Korea, Syria… god Syria – I just wanted to forget this year had ever happened,” said Canadian ad sales executive Penni Litmonton. “But this new café has arrived right in the nick of time.”

Lebanese fashion blogger and stylist Reny Hezzam, who lives in the same block as the new café, was in similar agreement.

“My head has been all over the place this year with worry about the political situation in Egypt, the ongoing refugee crisis in Syria and the fact that I can’t get a decent cappuccino within walking distance of my apartment. I’m just so grateful that 2013 has managed to end on at least some sort of high,” she said.

“Hopefully it’ll give the café next door a bit of decent competition as it has been getting rather complacent of late, especially with its eggs benedict.”

    And, just like that, I don’t want to visit La Serre Bistro & Boulangerie. Good job marketing manager and/or owner!

    Sometimes it’s important to remember the conflicts, lest others forget. To that end, I will shortly be opeing a Northern Irish Cocktail Bar with a stunning menu consisting of the following cocktails:
    sandbagger
    petrol bomb
    checkpoint
    kneecapper
    punishment beating
    People’s Front of Judea (sorry – wrong joke)
    arms cache
    bandit country
    border crossing
    The Maze haze
    The Stormont
    hunger strike

    you know you want to come along for the fun!

    And so it shall become reality:

    “Aryan Malik, a VIP ticket holder, told 7DAYS: “I can’t believe we never made it to Sandance after four hours on a bus. At 12am, we were just standing on the road. I got to AUD at 7pm and got back home at 3am after walking in the cold for ages without water, food or washrooms. I don’t just want a refund or an apology, I want to be compensated for the trauma.”
