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 😀

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 🙂

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 🙂 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 😀

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!

Coffee and stunning view @The Estate Cafe, Chikamagalur

With nothing much to do on our second evening in Chikamagalur, we looked up a couple of places on Tripadvisor. This place looked beautiful and we decided to stop by for coffee.

It’s a charming little cafe, with a breathtaking view. The place has gazebos for seating, and a pool table too. There are beautiful plants and flowers all around, which add to its charm.

Sweet somethings from Chocolat boulangerie patisserie, HSR

Spotted this tiny patisserie while getting out of What’s in the name cafe. All the desserts on display looked divine, so I decided to try out something.

Boulangerie (pronounced as boo-lanzhuhree) is a bakery that specializes/focuses mainly on baking breads and a patisserie is a bakery specializing in pastries, headed by a pastry chef.

If you think the name’s fancy, you should check out their menu. All the items have quirky names and are taken from Harry Potter series like Hagrid’s mead, Dumbledore’s dunker etc 🙂

Coffee & desserts @Cafe Noir, Phoenix Market City

Came far from our house to Phoenix market city over the weekend to catch a certain movie that I didn’t want to watch (I was lured into it by Mr. Husband, but I came out happy since he didn’t like it either ;)).

We had some time to kill before the show, and having never been to Cafe Noir, we decided to visit it. “Noir”(pronounced as nwaa) literally translates to “black” in French, and “café noir” means “black coffee”.

It was love at first sight! If you want to gorge on delicious food at a cafe with beautiful cheery decor, this is the place to be.

It has got beautiful white brick walls, non cluttered space (and lots of it!), a few funny posters here and there and board games if you get bored 🙂 All the tables have got sheets, leather bound diaries and color pencils to doodle. Paradise! 🙂

Musoorie tales-Part I

Our home trip has been a little hectic so far, but definitely enjoyable. We came to Musoorie today. It is aptly called “Queen of hills”. The drive from Nahan to Musoorie was picturesque. The whole route consists of beautiful tree covered mountains and green luscious valleys.
You can see clouds floating all around or even descending upon you like huge cotton balls at night.
