Serving breakfast and an all-day menu, with the option to grab-and-go, savor a sweet moment at the patisserie and lobby lounge – Bijou – meaning jewel in French.
While savoring the delicious flavors at Bijou, guests will also enjoy a daily candle ritual. Named the “City of Lights”, Paris was the first city in history to illuminate its streets after dark in 1662. The Sofitel Candle Ritual pays tribute to this French innovation, becoming a key part of the brand experience and tradition. Taking place every day at sunset in every Sofitel Hotel & Resort around the world, the candle ritual marks the transition from day to night, shifting from bright daylight to a cozy and intimate ambiance around the hotel. To complement the design and atmosphere of Sofitel Dubai The Obelisk, the hotel Ambassadors dress in beautiful clothing inspired by Ancient Egypt and enchant guests with a serene dance while lighting up the lobby.
Located in the heart of the hotel lobby, with bold geometric forms visible on the ceiling, an ivory color palette, curving furniture and smooth polished surfaces, the art deco theme is prominent in Bijou Patisserie. The marble counter brimming with an array of delicate pastries and other delicious treats truly takes center stage, making Bijou the jewel of the hotel and guests’ daily indulgence.
The menu at Bijou includes a variety of indulgences, from playfully delicate pastries and sweets such as classic éclairs, lemon tart and Chef Romain’s signature cannelés Bordelais in a variety of different flavors including vanilla, pistachio, chocolate and lemon. In addition, Sofitel’s signature afternoon tea, Le Goȗter, is a unique combination of flavors created with passion and served in a sophisticated jewelry box, unlocked with a special key.
