Spinneys and La Brioche, Al Ain

If you drive past the Al Jimi Mall, with the Mall on your right, heading towards Abu Dhabi, about 4 miles later you’ll see a shopping centre on your left. Go to the next roundabout and do a U-turn to get to it.

This is the right side of the building…

…and the left side…

The best reason to go is to sample the terrific cakes at La Brioche…

…don’t these look delicious?…

I got some for my wife’s birthday recently. (There is also a La Brioche at the Al Ahlia Centre, to the right of the Safeer Centre near Al Jimi Mall.)

There’s also a Spinney’s supermarket there…

….which is beautifully laid out…

…and it has a fab newspaper and magazine stand…

It’s probably the most upmarket-looking supermarket in Al Ain. Not a brilliant description, but I hope you get the picture!

Also in the centre is a large stationers, called Dubai Library Distributors, with mostly Arabic books…

…and there’s a McDonalds too…

…and an amusement arcade upstairs.

    La Brioche near Safee my centre is open again, I had been there with my freinds yesterday, they have done a wonderful decor, and it seems that they are serving the main course as well now. Give it a try

    Is this La Brioche near a home furnishing store? I believe that one was(is) closed?

    Thanks for that Mamie — I’ll update the article now.

    This one in this article is a new one, further out to Abu Dhabi — but the one near the home furnishing store has just reopened according to Mamie, above. Thanks for commenting! Keep them coming! 🙂

    Hi Jordan,
    My son Toby told me the other day that his friends were saying that Choithram’s had stopped selling pork products. Do you know the supermarket called Abela (sic?), around the area where Tawam Hospital is: this was always the other place to buy pork in Al Ain.
    Let me know if you make any progress in this area.

    Choithrams Town Square store still has a pork shop next to the main store (or did last weekend)
