Ten-second takeaway


Belgian Waffles with Honey + Banana, Pesto Mesto Chicken


Hot Chocolate

Winning for

The pretty ambience (more on that below), budget pricing and a short but sweet menu.

What we ate

The all-day breakfast is what you need to start with here. The Belgian waffles are done just right and drizzled with honey (can be dusted with sugar too if you want or dribbled with lots of chocolate sauce) along with sliced bananas and a dollop of whipped cream. The sandwiches here are in the salad sandwich category. Our order of Pesto Mesto Chicken Sandwich was bell peppers and chicken, tossed in pesto and olive oil, and stuffed into crispy toasted bread (wholewheat). We loved this old fashioned sandwich a lot. There’s also pastas, salads, and smoothies on the menu to choose from.

What we drank

The Hot Chocolate here is simple but effective. We suspect the hot chocolate mix might have just come out of a box, but topped with steamed milk and a generous garnish of chocolate, it does the trick. Also its pairing with the pesto sandwich was a perfect coming together of a snack and a hot drink.

The DL on the ambience

The interiors of the cafe will remind you of a parlour straight out of an Enid Blyton book. Think vintage floral wall paper, bits of odds and ends, little vintage boxes, an optician’s eye chart pinned to one of the walls, books, an old mirrored cupboard, and a handwritten menu on a blackboard. The al fresco seating is strung with fairy lighting, comfortable seating and wooden tables.

So, we’re thinking…

A cute cafe not just for budget eats, but also to hang out with friends and family (no one will breathe down your neck here once you have finished your meal here). Bonus points to the uber friendly staff too. PS: they also stock issues of indie magazine Motherland, curated art pieces and occasionally even designer clothes too, all kept inside a vintage cupboard called the Almirah.
