This CBD Cafe Wins For Nama Truffles, Sour Dough Waffles, Choco Shots And A Kids Play Area

Aakanksha posted on 17 October

Shortcut

Cooke Town’s pride and joy, Happy Belly Bakes, is now doling out all-day brekkie, hot chocolate shots, and an array of desserts in the CBD, and we’re thrilled to bits. Plus, a play area for kids.

Sweet As Can Be

Mugs in the wall, teal windows and cobbled flooring in this bungalow-turned-cafe, can only mean one thing, Happy Belly Bakes is not far! Of course, you’d know that if you saw the distinct sign on the facade, but hey, you were already distracted by the dessert counters inside. It’s OK, we understand. Us too. Before I even get to the dreamy desserts and crepes, I must say, this place wins for one for aspect — the kiddy play area, full with a mini slide, picture books, puzzles, and a tent and tunnel {adults, I learned the hard way, don’t try going through it!}. Perfect to give Mums and Dads a break from the little ones, but without having to leave them behind, Happy Belly Bakes on Primrose Road, off MG Road is the quintessential cafe, but if you’re talking about cafes in Alice’s Wonderland. And this one has crepes too!

Version 2.0

Maintaining most of the menu from the Clarke’s Road outlet, this one too will load you up with all-day breakfast, crepes, French fries, and pasta — the classic day-time menu which works with any kind of dessert. The crepes are in-house stars, light fluffy and with a line-up of fillings {including mushroom and tuna} that are indulgent for the price of INR 200. The fries, quiches, pizzas and pastas are perfect if you want something substantial, that is not dessert. But really, why? Dessert is bae, no?

Start with the chocolate chip waffles that come loaded with chocolate sauce, choco chips and vanilla ice cream. Oh, and you can even pick the sourdough version. Then to give chocolate a break, have a popsicle. Icy, yummy and old-school, they have a raspberry mousse one that is our current favourite. Other specialities are their couverture chocolates, including nama truffles, chocolate eclairs and a Bad Addiction. No, really, it’s called that, and it’s multiple layers of chocolate which truly are addictive. Order it by the slice, and pretend each one is your first!

Order Away

Cold coffee or iced tea is always a fine option at Happy Belly Bakes, but what steals the show is their take on hot chocolate. Nope, not that strange watered down powder. This is sublime molten Belgian chocolate in an espresso cup. It’s a real shot of chocolate, and if you’re not down for that kind of shot then you’re missing out.

Of course, you don’t need us to tell you about the gorgeous cakes that proprietors and pâtissiers Shisham Hinduja and Thripti Ahuja, are capable of creating. From anti-gravity and picture cakes to multi-tiered wedding ones and cupcake towers, they have them all. So, if you have a birthday coming soon, go on and order. If not, go make up a fake one and order away.
