Cake Town- A dream come true for a creative from the land of Mountains
Rising from humble beginnings- Waleed bin Saif began his early career as an engineer for a family contractor business.
His prospects were limited, but his vision was broad. Holding a dream of starting his own cafe, Waleed finally decided to provide an impetus to his dream and turn it into a reality.

With three employers in the beginning, Cake Town was launched on an eighty square feet area with meagre means. But with a strong grit and unbelievable determination, Waleed aspired to make it big.
His dream was to cultivate the best of his social networking and make an efficient use of his engagements to create an ambient little place with a charming atmosphere to provide customers with a hospitable aura to spend quality time.
