We, at LBB, deeply believe in the power of buttered toast to fix almost every problem under the sun. And with our list below, you’ll find that the bread stands its own ground even without its buttery sidekick.

After all, these loaves are the best things to have happened since… well, you know, sliced bread.

Sugar & Spice at Le Marche

We’ve found Sugar & Spice to be a failsafe trove for burger buns, whenever a last-minute barbeque plan has been made after a few too many friendly drinks the night before. A wholewheat version is available too, if you need good carbs to cleanse your sins.

Price: Starting at INR 70 {approx.}

Modern Bazaar

modernbazaarIt never ceases to amaze us just how much is stuffed into the crowded aisles of Modern Bazaar. To make a swift selection from the bakery section, we suggest their Honey Oval Bread or very interesting Mushroom Loaf or Olive Oregano Loaf. If you’re going super healthy, try the 7-Grain special.

madisonBlame it on the butter if you will, but one bite of the fresh-toasted brioche at Madison & Pike and you will be in love.
