This is a much advertised place for having cakes and pastries. We had been to this place with lots of expectations, but found that place pretty average. We had their chocolate cake and pastries with tea. The cakes were average and so was the tea.

After seeing Rocky and Mayur's experience in NDTV Good Times we went there. But the chocolate cake was not soft enough (was it stale?). We asked for some tissue paper and that never arrived. :-(

The place is being famous for its bakes and cakes for long. But in our case, the choclate cake seemed pretty dry. May be one off case!! The sitting area though is awesome, and the portions offered are also quite big for one person!

Well, i heard a lot about this restaurant so we went there. But could have a lot there because there was no electricity. So, we only had precooked cakes and pastries with self serve tea. We missed their specialty. Last but not least, buy a red Grape wine from there. It is cheaper in comparison to other shops. The quality... More

You really need to pop downstairs to find out what is or isn't available on any given occasion as the posted menu tends to be more of a general guidelines as to what might be... More
