A bright beautiful winter morning had us standing in front of Café Zoe for breakfast at 8.30. But unfortunately the sign at the door read ‘CLOSED’. After enquiring around, we found out that the café opens at 10. So needless to say we were disappointed and made a mental note to call ahead before we turned up for breakfast at anyplace if it was before 10 am. So today Café Zoe’s loss was Chayoos’s gain.
This size ‘L’ café was open and we heaved a sigh of relief and our stomachs grumbled in anticipation. From the outside you can’t make out that the café is pretty big. The open plan with the up-turned kullhad and bright yellow cycle wheels as lamp shades added to the rustic atmosphere.
We ordered a spinach corn cheese sandwich which was very cheesy. I know with a name like that it is supposed to be cheesy but it was so cheesy that even my daughter – who loves cheese – could not finish it.
Then we had keema pao which was average and the moist chocolate cake which was good.
The tea was desi chai regular and if you want it in a kullhad you have to dish out an additional Rs. 20.
I felt that everything here was just a tad overpriced.
PS: Bathroom – Better hold it.
