Shortcut

For over thirty years, the iconic Kookie Jar {or KJ as it’s fondly called}, has given us fond memories and delicious pastries. We hit up their largest outlet (in Hindustan Park) which has some great new additions to the menu.

What Makes It Awesome

The KJ outlet near Fabindia has several not-to-be-missed items. Apart from their iconic lemon tarts and chocolate boats, they have strawberry crumble pie – slightly tangy and crumbly, Salted Chocolate Caramel Pastry, Strawberry Crumble Cake, a range of eclairs, DIY cookie sets that you can take home and customise, a whole range of breads and more.

If you like sandwiches, try the Chicken or Prawn Focassia, Chicken Pesto and Chicken Egg in wholewheat bread.We adore their range of home-made ice creams in flavours like Fresh Strawberry, Belgian Chocolate {milk and dark}, Salt Caramel, Fresh Lemon, Orange with orange rinds, Cappuccino.  Along one wall behind the counter were shelves stocked with a range of  freshly-baked breads.

What We Loved

Chocolate lovers shouldn’t miss the droolworthy Hot Chocolate On A Stick. Take it home, and stir it in a cup of milk for the prefect cuppa!

Pro Tip

The store will be open from 10am to 10pm, every day. 

Roses Are Pink.. Yellow and Purple

 The cakes are amazing. The Rosettes Truffle Chocolate Cake looks pretty as a picture. Available in many colours, it’s perfect for a pajama party with the squad or a bridal shower. 

Spectacular Looks

Like a real cookie jar is filled with surprising and exciting things, the new outlet has that same surprise factor. The Kookie Jar wrapper signage outside is adorable. Inside, the bright natural light streaming in, glass display counters, the green foliage wallpaper, the multi-tiered holders laden with gorgeous pastries, tarts, pies and cakes lends this place a very European vibe. Owner Lovey Burman visited restaurant designers Costa Group in Ricco del Golfo di Spezia in Liguria, Italy for ideas.
