We’ve had a multitude of cafes sprouting up in Bandra in the past few months. Poetry by Love And Cheesecake, the latest addition to the list, stands in tough competition with the legendary Theobroma and comparatively newer Bombay Salad Co., Bombay Waffle Co. and Sequel. We were recently invited at the café for a preview and found enough reasons to go back.
All Day Breakfast
Good news for early risers, Poetry starts at 8 am and serves breakfast all day. We’ve had their Poached Eggs and Avocado on a Croissant and they are a perfect start to the morning. They also serve cold pressed juices and smoothies, so now you know where to head to after your morning jog. They also have soups, salads, sandwiches, waffles and pancakes.
Cosy Work Space
The café is split into two levels and we loved the space on the first floor with its pastel colours, bright interiors, small tables to sit and work from and the open kitchen.
All-day breakfast, cold-pressed juices, cosy work space and free Wi-Fi; this place is a freelancer’s paradise.
The chopped black kale salad is anything but boring.
Their Onion Quiche is one of the lightest quiches that we’ve had, and all our notions of associating kale with boring healthy food disappeared as we dug into the Chopped Kale Salad. The slightly bitter kale leaves with aged Gouda, almonds and anchovy dressing was perfect comfort food. While you are there, also have the Crème Brulee Pancakes – perfectly sweet with caramelised crunch in the centre.
The Dessert Counter
And if you’re someone who is in love with the desserts and cheesecakes at Love And Cheesecake, don’t fret. Their dessert counter stocks the signature desserts and more.
