“Sunny Cafe & Kitchen” is located at the same spot in HSR, where “Sizzling Monk” used to be. We visited the cafe over last weekend for lunch and tried out a few things.
The seating here hasn’t changed much, except for an increased number of tables outside. The menu offers a little bit of everything: burgers, sandwiches, pasta, sizzlers, North Indian curries etc. Beverages include a variety of coffees, teas, fresh juices and smoothies.
“That Garage Cafe” is a garage themed cafe in HSR and part of the place rents/sells cycles and bikes too. The cafe is not very big and has an interesting decor with tables shaped like bike tyres, napkin holders made out of audio cassettes etc. There are some board games as well like scrabble, monopoly etc.
I saw some massive stunning Enfields(I could identify only Americana) outside for sale/rent. So if you are a bike lover, do go to this place.
This legendary place called ‘The Hole in the Wall Cafe‘ had been on my list forever and I never got to visit it due to the never-ending queues there. The place doesn’t take reservations and parking is a hassle, which doesn’t help the case either!
So the other day when this place popped up on my Swiggy app, I was very happy and we both decided to order from there. They have a superb breakfast menu as well as lots of burgers/sandwiches to choose from. I placed an order for a grilled double chicken sandwich, big ‘shrooms & onions sandwich and a portion of hash browns.
South Indian breakfast cravings sorted!
Saturday morning we were craving for a South Indian breakfast, but none of us wanted to venture out. The newly launched UberEats came to our rescue and we placed an order from Idli & Dosa Cafe for idlis, vada, poori sagu, plain dosa and kuzhi paniyaram (don’t judge, we were hungry 🙂 ).
HSR’s food scene is rapidly evolving, and it’s good to see so many new places popping up. Tea trails opened its first outlet in Koramangala a few months back, followed by this one in HSR recently.
It is a small cafe located on HSR main road with a sizeable tea menu. They have some seating on first floor as well, but it was reserved for a private party when we visited. They have an extensive tea menu and a pretty good food menu too.
Loved and hated this place at the same time! It’s like a slightly upmarket dhaba that serves excellent food and beverages at low prices, but you can’t be finicky about hygiene here. You’d be spoilt for choices of both food and beverages, since they serve everything from chakhna (titbits like salted peanuts, fried moong dal etc), nachos, baos with quirky fillings to biryani and much more.
The first time we came here, there was a long queue. The next time we were there, it was closed due to prohibition 😦 Today was our lucky day and we got a table. They have some seating outside, but it was way too hot, so we chose to sit in. There was no one at the reception and none of the servers seemed interested in showing us a table, so we found a place ourselves and settled in.
After our first day’s miserable service and F&B experience at the hotel, I had almost given up on this place. I was not hoping to see much in the breakfast buffet, but to my relief it was much better than their disastrous dinner spread.
This spread was decent, with live counters for dosa, omelette, waffles, pancakes etc. I particularly liked the South Indian dishes. Dosa was paper thin and crisp. Idlis and vadas were fresh and well done. Sambar was more like a dal, but nonetheless very tasty.
