Statutory warning: This post is strictly for the people with sweet tooth. Frankly, I’ve heard of this place (good things of course), but couldn’t somehow manage to go there- not very sure- why. But, this time I was invited there for their new puja menu launch and this is my experience on this place.
How to go and when to go:-
Now, finding this place can be a little tricky one, as this one is tucked in a small and cozy corner in south Calcutta. We entered southern avenue from golpark and took the 2nd right hand lane. The first crossing one our left (instructed by the local chai-wallah) took us to this place- on our right. PFA Google location
Its open from breakfast till late evening and on all days.
The ambience is cute, very cute – full of pick everywhere and personal touches can be found everywhere- the menu card, wall paint, window decoration, almost everywhere. Now, from the menu card, it seemed that their core strength is marzipan and decorative bakery. Off course, a good number of savory items can be found there. The items are slightly overpriced, but if we compare it with the quality of material they use, it seemed okay.The chocolate is pure belgian- for example. The menu can be found here .
We were busy clicking pictures. Now who wouldn’t – considering you get the below items for shoot.
We tasted their cafe Mocha, which was nice and chocolaty with their cookie platter. Both were fine.
The next item for tasting was their cake of the day- it was a nicely done chocolate cake- full with exquisite belgian chocolate, but not layered. The top icing was brilliantly done as per the bengali puja theme.
The cakes were extremely heavy and for the good reasons (loads of belgian chocolate stuffing and priced at 675/- a piece). We were full and couldn’t take these sweets any more and hence took a leave.
A must go for sweet tooth persons and you should be prepared to pay a premium price for premium product. Hence be prepared and enjoy.
Bon Apetite !!!
