First Look: Mumbai's Popular Grandmama's Cafe Is Now In Pune
The wait is finally over for the most-anticipated new opening of this year. Say hi to Mumbai's highly-Instagrammable eatery, Grandmama's Cafe that has opened its doors in Koregaon Park, and looks classic and vintage as ever.
What Makes It Awesome?
What won our hearts almost immediately was the quintessential Grandmama's theme from Mumbai; white-and-green exterior, a vintage Beetle at the entrance, white bricked walls adorned with pretty monsoon flowers, bird-cage ceiling lights, a pretty swing set-up near the dessert bar, Victorian mirrors, furniture decked up with sophisticated French upholstery, burst of pastel hues at every corner and so much more. In short, Pune's Grandmama's Cafe looks nothing short of a dreamy restaurant from the streets of Paris. Food-wise, the cafe has retained all the bestsellers from its Mumbai outlets - marshmallow lovers hot chocolate, akuri on toast, Grandmama's special pizza and salted caramel cheesecake to name a few. We recommend you must try the trash can nachos, which is basically tortilla chips piled up along with refried beans, jalapenos and bell peppers, smothered in cheese sauce, spicy salsa and sour cream. Other dishes that stood out for us were grilled basil chicken, avocado toast and extremely flavoursome, spicy paprika fondue.
What Could Be Better?
We don't want to sound greedy, but we wish more outlets open in Pune soon for people who live in the other side of the town. Hint: Baner, Aundh, FC Road and so on...
Pune's Grandmama's has a whole range of new dishes on the menu like the Cyprus citrus, salad in a jar and Gambas Al Ajillo, a Spanish delicacy made of garlic prawns, olive oil, chilli and basil.
