Sugar Daddy’s Bakery and Café Launches ‘Hey Sugar’

This month saw the launch of popular Sugar Daddy’s Bakery and Café’s new brand Hey Sugar. The trendy Dubai and Abu Dhabi-based bakery became known for its decedent cupcakes and sweet treats called ‘Hey Sugar.’ The new brand aims to deliver an innovative range of delicious desserts as well as a higher standard of service and quality.

Hey Sugar is the product of husband and wife team, Dana Jallad and Raed Saqfelhait, the founders and managing directors of Sugar Daddy’s Bakery and Café LLC in Dubai. The new brand will launch at Sugar Daddy’s existing nine locations, five of which are dine-in cafes on Jumeirah Beach Residence, Park Island- Dubai Marina, Mirdiff City Centre, Galleries Lafayette at the Dubai Mall and Al Khalidiyah Mall in Abu Dhabi in addition to the original location at the Village Mall which stands today at more than double its original size.  All locations offer a modern yet cozy environment against the backdrop of its signature mint green and white striped walls, a look which the new brand will continue to carry. Customers can indulge in an ever growing number of cupcakes flavours and sweet treats like whoopie pies, banoffee pies, cookies, brownies, cake pops, breakfast loaves and cakes, as well as a selection of gourmet coffees, teas and speciality cupcakes.


“This is the perfect time to launch Hey Sugar, as our concept is preparing to expand regionally and internationally. We wanted to introduce a name that is culturally more acceptable to our customer base yet maintain the fun personality of our brand.
