In terms of lobbies with cakes, Yas Hilton is a slam dunk. We enjoyed the chocolate, savoured the blueberry cheesecake and the carrot cake and completely inhaled the carrot cake. Not too sweet, great cream cheese icing and a really gorgeous consistency, this beauty will see us schlepping to Yas on the quiet, while pretending to have had a salad for lunch!
