Hot Pink Benedict, Banana Blondies & Boozy Teas: Why This New Pondy Eatery Is Bae

Bikram posted on 08 February

Shortcut

Located in the quaint and very colonial salmon-hued La Maison Rose, Coromandel Café is the new kid on the block that does Continental food and freshly baked desserts. Plus, there’s also an expansive drinks menu to be check out all against a charming ambience.

Coffee & Conversations

Ideal for early evening intimate catch-ups, the outdoor seating at Coromandel affords private conversations over lazy pots of fine tea and fresh cakes. We love the Saffron Kahwa for its warming notes, and how beautifully it balances the cakes and bakes. The coffee hits the sweet spot too — single origin organic coffee from Coorg, this is like a head rush in every sip. The teas can be turned into boozy cups as well, with the addition of a shot of whisky {how ingenious is that!}.

And while the cake selection features old favourites and plenty of crowd pleasers, our little love note goes out to the most luscious thing we have had in a while — the Mason 65% Chunky Chocolate, Nut & Banana Blondies is TDF and is also gluten free and vegan!

The French Connection

The twilight hour changes the mood, and as dusk approaches Coromandel gently lights the leafy environs, and brings out an elaborate drinks and food menu. Fine French flavours meet that little local twist to produce inventive dishes. Anytime is brekkie time for us — so perfectly done Hot Pink Benedict {eggs Benedict with a hot pink sauce} jostles for space with Posh n Pink Tagliatelle {yes, we are partial to pink, especially when we sit in the courtyard of a rose-tinted villa}.

The seafood lover in us makes a mental note to get the Moroccan Spiced Prawns served with herbed zucchini and crispy rice cakes next time we drop by. And we are also going a bit gooey thinking about their Ultimate Pancake Stack — that comes packed with nuts, mascarpone and a spiced jaggery syrup {yum!}.

The property also houses a CMYK Bookstore for you to browse while you wait for your order to arrive or get a table on packed evenings.
