Tasty treats

Such a lovely place to grab yourself a bite. The cakes are amazing! In fact we enjoyed the food so much that we visited twice in one day. Although the only downside is that the shop is fairly small and so we had to wait a while for seats. Just goes to show just how good the sweet treats really... read more

One of the best places to get some gooey delicious cakes and choco-walnut brownies. Highly recommended for their bakery products and even good sandwiches and breads. Must try their cakes and pastries.

Though a small compact place with limited seating the way in which the cakes & breads are setup makes u awestruck about the variety at ur disposal. We tried the much acclaimed "red velvet pastry" & "oreo cake", red velvet won hands down on the different taste, not to take anything away from the other one though. It ms definately... More

We went to Theobrama on Saturday night, August 22 to have dessert. At the counter however we were confronted by their chef called Vinod wearing black, and throwing around his attitude. We were inquiring about a simple chocolate cake, but he instead tried to sell us another pastry very rudely, with a 'take-it-or-leave-it' attitude. Shocking behaviour that the chef of... More

It's on the colaba causeway, one of the busiest street shopping places in Mumbai. It's petit with 4-5 tables and is always power packed. The red velvet cake is very delicious, just melts in your mouth. On my first visit I noticed every customer having a bite of their red velvet cup cake. We also tried the humus feta, a... More

We found this cafe in a travel book, and we were not disappointed at all. After our first visit, we then returned the other day because there was so many different cakes that we still wanted to try. The brownies are definitely the best that I have found in India so far, and they have a great variety; its so... More

The pokey little shop doesn't look like much, but the constant packing of the tables and benches gives you a clue as to the quality. We tried a few different menu items, and everything was perfect; the coffee is worth the premium price compared to other joints, it was possibly the best espresso we had in India. Two words: Bacon...
