The Colony Gastropub, HSR Layout

“The Colony Gastropub” is the newest watering hole in HSR and is a beautiful place to dine at. I took an immediate liking to this place which is spread across two floors and has terrace seating too. But we had to get a table on the lower floor since it was drizzling.

This floor looked like just the prefect place to unwind. I think not many people are aware of this lounge yet, so it was sparsely populated on a Saturday evening. We got a comfy couch by the window and started skimming through their menus.

The Pinewood, Barog, Himachal Pradesh

We recently went to Shimla for a couple of days. It takes around 3-4 hours from Chandigarh if you make a couple of stops for lunch/snack. There are lots of dhabas and restaurants on the way, and we decided to stop for lunch at a place called The Pinewood. It’s run by HP Tourism and serves excellent food. The restaurant is spread across a large area including the hotel lawns, that have a stunning display of flora and fauna.

Decor is simple with basic wooden furniture. The menu is not big, but I would highly recommend their delectable local fares like sepu vadi, madra etc.

Good times @Chavadi, Bannerghatta Road

Chavadi is a beautiful place tucked away from the hustle bustle of the city and the ever busy Bannerghatta Road. If you are looking for a quiet rooftop place with quirky cocktails and yummy food, this is where you should go.

This week, after an afternoon movie in JP Nagar, I suggested this place for a late lunch and snacks. So after braving traffic on bannerghatta road, we reached here and I must say this was worth all the traffic.

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.

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 “cafĂ© noir” means “black coffee”.
