The good thing about Cafe Felix is that it has two levels. Both have great views of Ulsoor lake. The restaurant offers comfortable seating, comfy sofas to lounge around in and a section which showcases desserts and where your thick shakes get made. But the terrace section looks like it is party central, and gives out proper bar vibes with alfresco seating, a lot of space to let the balmy Bangalore breeze in, in evenings.
Do start your meal here with Cafe Felix’s range of healthy smoothies. On request, they added no sugar to our mixed berries smoothie and we are happy to report that the natural tartness of the berries and the yoghurt did not make us miss any sweet at all. But our favourite has to be the very indulgent Chocolate Cake Shake. The thick shake actually smells and tastes like birthday cake in a glass with vanilla ice cream, chocolate, milk and a big blob of whipped cream.
We tried a quinoa salad, which was fresh and tangy with orange segments, and greens. But the Smoked Salmon Nicoise is our pick with thick, juicy, meaty slices of tuna tossed up with crunchy edamame, boiled potato, cherry tomatoes, haricot beans and mayo. A shout out ought to go to the buttery potato and crushed pepper gnocchi, porcini-scented butter and roasted shallots. For hearty mains, do try the Jerk Spice Tandoor Roasted Chicken served with potato mash and a soya garlic glaze. Finish off with the old fashioned Blueberry Almond Bread Pudding.
