Boca Grande, Koramangala

After being stuck at home for most part of Saturday(first due to a long jam and then thunderstorms), we decided to go out for lunch on Sunday. Boca Grande was chosen because of its beautiful photos and tempting menu.

We reached the cafe around 1:30 and took a table inside. Their outdoor seating is picture perfect with wooden benches and cobblestone ground, but it was quite hot to sit outside. So we moved in and took our time choosing a table since the place was almost empty(now I think we should’ve taken the hint :)).

Muffets and Tuffets, Koramangala

Muffets & Tuffets is a beautiful cafe in Koramangala that derives its name from an old nursery rhyme called “Little Miss Muffet“. We went here for lunch this weekend and had some surprisingly good food.

They have a big menu with loads of stuff to choose from, everything from sandwiches, burgers, salads to delicious sounding mains. There is also a very tempting dessert counter which is not to be missed πŸ™‚ The cafe has decent amount of seating and is very quiet & peaceful. Seating is very comfortable and service is pretty good.

Grapevine, HSR Layout

A dreamy little cafe, hot cup of tea, some yummy snacks and a crossword puzzle with Mr.H and I felt I could spend my entire evening here. How could I have failed to notice this place!

This charming cafe has simple yet classy decor, an open bookshelf built around a huge tree trunk and a wine rack with some wines on display near the entrance. The place has a cozy feel to it, and the glass wall on one side makes it look bright and spacious.

I think I spent first half an hour just gazing around at the lovely surroundings, and then my eyes fell upon coloring sheets and a crossword puzzle on our table (yay!). Our server handed us their beautiful menus and a big case of color pencils for the coloring sheets πŸ˜€

They have varieties of coffees, teas, shakes and appetizing dishes. We asked for coco berry tea, macchiato, a portion of spinach & artichoke onion rings, and started off with the crossword puzzle πŸ™‚

Service was super quick and our server appeared soon with our food and beverages. Tea was accompanied by delicious chocolate cookies. Both tea and coffee were excellent, but the showstopper was onion rings.

Slices of onion stuffed with spinach and cheese, dipped in a light batter and fried to perfection, sinful and delicious πŸ™‚ I loved the light batter, which made the onion rings light and fluffy rather than weighing them down. The dip served along with the dish was equally good. I wish they start serving even number of rings, so that we won’t have to fight over the last piece πŸ˜€

The cafe is an absolute delight, and we had an amazing time with incredible food and puzzles. It’s a perfect place to relax. I am definitely going back for dinner soon!

Tea Trails Bistro, HSR Layout

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.

The Hideout, BTM

Following our usual tradition of ordering in on Sunday nights, we got dinner from this cafe in BTM. The photos on Zomato looked quite charming and I hoped food would be good too.

We placed an order for grilled chicken sandwich, mushroom cheese sandwich and a portion of crispy veggies (which looked especially tempting on the delivery app). Everything arrived on time, which was great for a Sunday evening.

Cafe Medley, Koramangala

Went to this laid-back little cafe in Koramangala for a late lunch over the weekend, and had some finger-licking good food with delicious beverages.

Their downstairs area doesn’t have much of a seating, so after braving narrow spiraling stairs which can easily give you vertigo, we went to the terrace and got seated. Our server got us a huge menu card, and we placed an order for veg penne pasta in pesto sauce, chicken au gratin, ginger tea and iced black coffee.

Medium crush pizza and more @Cafe Nation, Koramangala

I’m pretty sure you are thinking of pointing out the typo (medium crush) in my heading. Don’t worry, it’s not one πŸ™‚

I think we have now run out of yet-to-be-tried places inΒ Kormangala and HSR that serve thin crust pizzas. Over the weekend, we were wandering in JNC lane, Koramangala looking for another restaurant, when Mr. H spotted this place and we decided to try out the pizzas here.

It’s a cafe with very simple and neat decor, and a big menu which boasts of different kinds of burgers, sandwiches, pizzas, pastas, waffles and much more. They have a tempting breakfast menu too, I’m hoping I’ll get to try it sometime πŸ™‚
