Lite Bites at Crust and Crema
In the short time since it’s opening, Crust and Crema has already paved the way in Bahrain for specialty coffee. From their freshly brewed coffees using unique and artisanal methods, to the flavoured lattes and teas, Crust and Crema has become the ideal destination for a perfect cup of hot or cold, enticing, caffeinated drink. Wanting to give their customers a more fulfilled café experience, the specialty cafe has created a menu to ensure its customers not only enjoy a clean cup of coffee, but can also indulge in light meals that complement their drinks. Having recently introduced a new, fuller menu, Crust and Crema is serving its customers an absolute café experience.
With two branches around Bahrain, Crust and Crema has acquired an eclectic customer base in both their Saar and Galleria Mall branches – resulting in a more cosy and relaxed ambiance in Saar, and a more youth-friendly feel in Galleria Mall. One common factor among both customers is the affinity towards a crisp cup of coffee accompanied by a light but satisfying meal, and thus the café decided to put together a menu that would harmonize with the drinks perfectly. Looking to serve their customers excellent quality food as well, Crust and Crema’s expert chefs combined their expertise to create a menu that is simple, wholesome, and delicious. Ensuring that the food is not only appetizing but also nutritious and healthy, Crust and Crema’s ingredients are fresh, prepared every day, and in-house such as the breads and sauces for example. The chefs note that though there are many options for the diners to go eat, they have come to the café for the coffee and have chosen to eat there as well, therefore it is their responsibility to make sure the food that is served is of high nutritional value.
Enhancing the menu to add more options for the diners, the specialty cafe offers a wide selection of sandwiches, burgers, salads, and soups. One of their most popular sandwiches is the Bulgogi Cheesesteak that is prepared using the traditional Korean recipe of making grilled beef, and served inside homemade Panini bread, with the option of fries and salad on the side. The tender meat is full of flavour due its special marinade and is perfect for a midday meal. Customers also have the choice to have the Bulgogi meat salad, which is an even lighter meal option with the same rich taste. Another popular option is the CnC Cheeseburger, made using a juicy beef patty, and homemade burger buns, with fresh vegetables as well. The café kitchen prepares the meat patty in-house as well by purchasing the beef, grinding it, and adding the spices. The patty for the chicken burger is also prepared in-house, making sure nothing is bought from outside and customers can indulge in fresh-tasting food. The sandwiches are offered with the option of being served in either brown or white bread. Adding beef, turkey, and vegetarian options also expanded the customer-favourite CnC Club Sandwich menu. For those who enjoy a quicker meal, the wide selection of Salads is an appealing alternative along with offering the traditional Ceasar salad; there are also exciting salad options such as the chickpea salad, which is made with fresh greens and pomegranate, chickpeas, and olives. The small but hearty soup selection at the specialty café is also a great choice for a quick and light meal, as the soup is served in a bread bowl and remains warm and flavorous. Crust and Crema aims to provide its customers with a complete dining and coffee experience with their generous portions, welcoming ambiance, and wholesome food.
Adding a new sweet treat to the menu as well, the café has launched the all-day waffle menu for the customers to enjoy another sweet option. Using their own recipe the café offers the waffles in three delectable flavours, of Caramel Banana, Chocolate Oreo, and Exotic Fruits, enhancing the expansive dessert menu the specialty cafe already has to offer, allowing the diners to opt for a new sweet alternative with their drinks.
Whether it is for a cup of coffee or to enjoy a quick meal with the coffee, Crust and Crema’s delicious drinks and food menu combined with its inviting ambiance in both locations offers its customers an enjoyable overall experience that guarantees their return time and again.
