Beachroad Magazine meets up with Klaudia Ziemnicka at one of the Beachroads most popular restaurants The Hamptons Cafe a ‘Boutique Café’ inspired by the heritage & lifestyle of the Hamptons region of New York, a place renowned for its natural beauty, fertile lands, home grown produce & bounty from the abundant sea.
Hi Klaudia where do you like to eat, shop and socialise in our community?
Well for me Jumeirah has it all … an amazing beach, various restaurants, great sports facilities and great boutique style shopping. Personally I like the vibe of this area, you can find all ages living and working in Jumeirah but everyone will find something special for themselves.
I am big fan of running and I couldn’t be happier with our running tracks along Jumeirah Beach. My friends and I always get together for a good game of volleyball on Kite Beach, the facilities are awesome.
Jumeirah has plenty of Juice bars and scrumptious healthy restaurants.
What do you think about Dubai as a City and its rapid growth? //
I see Dubai as a cosmopolitan young vibrant city! I am really excited to witness how fast this small city is growing, it is magic. The competition in Dubai is high as we all know but if your business is successful you will always be busy and customers will always come back.The key to our success at Hamptons is the delicious food, ambiance, our team, and a great location. To get the full package is hard but I am confident we have it all.
What inspires you working at The Hamptons Cafe?
My joy is my job. I have worked in The Hamptons Cafe for over a year now but it always make me happy to step in to this beautiful villa ! The surroundings of The Hamptons Cafe give me an energy throughout the day. Despite the beautiful interior I have to say I have an amazing team, we work together really well as one big family. As we know this industry is not easy but I believe we should challenge ourselves everyday, push to become better and better. I am big believer in “One team one Dream”.
What makes The Hamptons Cafe different to other venues on Beachroad?
From the outdoor seating to the vintage car stylishly parked outside, The Hamptons Cafe begs to be explored. And then, there is the dead giveaway – weekend queues! Would you queue for breakfast? The guests at our venue certainly do…
Our restaurant is a special place, from the moment that you walk in you will experience a warm feeling, we want you to relax in our Hamptonian style Villa and make you feel like at home. We also strongly believe in providing fresh and organic product to our clientele.
