Winning For

The light as air galettes and the great coffee. Plus, the price points are pocket-friendly. You can easily have a meal for two at INR 500.

Lowdown On The Ambience

Bonjour cannot boast of a charming cafe space because it is rather tiny. But what it doesn’t offer in space, it makes up with French posters on the walls, a piano tucked away near the counter, a few high stools and cute little tables for seating.

French Connection

While Frenchmen Louis Blervaque, Vincent Pierquet, Clement Ribeaud, and Kamal Sharma are from backgrounds as diverse as engineering and marketing, what connects them all is their love for French food. Longing to have a space where they could offer {and eat, of course} simple French dishes at reasonable prices, the group started Bonjour in November last year.

Keeping it simple, the resto cafe offers crepes, galettes, sandwiches and even breakfast combos. Partnering with city-based startup, Kingsmen Coffee, they also offer coffee, and iced tea to sip on. Free WiFi and ample power points ensure that you can turn work time into a little snacking adventure here.

To Crepe Or Not To Crepe

Bonjour-i

We suggest you opt for the Kingsmen Mocha, dark chocolate poured into a tumbler and then topped with strong espresso. The savoury galettes here are made with buckwheat {hello gluten-free and healthier French food}. You can pick your filling from the add-on options like egg, mushrom, cheese, chicken and pork ham or sausage.

The Rendez-vous {all galettes and crepes come in a small and big size}, stuffed with zucchini and cheese, came with chicken bits and was a hit with us for its not-too-spicy, creamy filling. The Brunette wins hands down for us though with its pungent mustard, sweet caramelised onions and pork sausages stuffing. While they do have spicier options {even fiery dips} for the Indian palate, we suggest you steer clear of those. You will swoon over Bonjour’s sweet crepes. We recommend the Bon Voyage — a light crepe stuffed with frangipane — gooey, almond sauce, and topped with a scoop of their homemade vanilla ice cream. Next time? C’est La Vie. No not literally, we mean the mushroom and bechamel galette.

So, We’re Thinking…

While Bonjour may be slightly difficult to find {it is hidden on the lesser known Someshwara Temple Road}, the extra effort is totally worth it when you have warm crepes and amazing coffee on the menu. Don’t forget to ask them to pack you some of their lemon curd, or apple pumpkin or papaya jams, which they sell by the bottle.
