Every time I walked up the residency road, I would be gravitated towards this quirky looking building. The board read community with a never ending m in it. It was a nice place and I always intended to visit it. One Sunday we planned to finally go there. It was a girl’s day out. The red bricked building with huge glass windows has an indoor, outdoor and first floor seating arrangement. There is also a library section where you can read books and have your lunch. I found the décor of the place just wonderful. Wooden tables and chairs, fairy lighting and warm ambience.

We walked to the first floor because the ground floor was completely packed.  The tables and chairs can be a bit more comfortable. We order the Mexican veg cheese burger, peri peri chicken, US grilled chicken sizzler and pasta Alfredo. The burger was good. Very good. The peri peri chicken was juicy, spicy and delicious. The sizzler was just illegal. It is a dish fit for gods and I felt guilty eating such nice food. Do I even deserve it? Though it is a US sizzler, it had a touch of our own desi spices. May be that’s what made it so tasty. The pasta was cheesy and yummy. May be the chef was in happy mood, so he tossed in more cheese than I expected because most places serve dry and soggy pasta. This was just perfect for my taste. I polished of a bowl all by myself (now these are the perks of lunching with people who don’t like the foods you do… wink wink).

I liked the fact that the manager came to our table and took special care of our demands. It was a perfect lunch. It was time for desserts. The list of their desserts is limited. But, we ordered two different cakes and both were melt in the mouth amazing. Over all, it was a perfect lunch.

If you love to hang out with your pack, have long conversations, some beer and good food, then this is your place. I give this place a 4.5 out of 5 for their hospitality, food and ambience.

I have found a new favourite breakfast place! I love breakfasts. Especially when I have it in a beautiful place. Bangalore is filled with breakfast spots. And when I headed towards Dyu art café, I had thought it would be the typical buzzing café that we often see in the city. But, thank god is was wrong. This is one place that took me by surprise, with its ambience and the food.

To begin with, the café stands on a silent little road in Koramangala. The road is lined with huge trees and you instantly think of Goa or Mangalore. The café in itself also takes you to the coastal region with its tiled roof, large courtyards and the greenery. The interiors of the place is so soothing, you almost feel like you are in your Ajji mane (granny’s house). the place had an ambience that brought the outdoors inside.

There are two levels of seating spaces, the ground and the first floor. We opted for the large balcony kind of first floor done with wood. We could see the entire place from our table and it was a pleasant view. the place also displays some unique art works.

My husband ordered a pasta salad (he is in a salad eating phase… a big yawn). Then came the chicken steak burger and grilled cheese sandwich. To go with it we ordered cold chocolate drink. The salad was good. The burger was heavenly. The steak was juicy and dense. The sandwich was simple yet scrumptious. It was a treat of cheesy goodness. But, the show stopper was the chocolate drink. The thick, cold chocolate drink topped with sinful amounts of chocolate shavings was all I kept drinking the entire time.

Whether it is breakfast or dinner, I am entitled to have desserts. This is something I tell my husband while he looks at me as if I am mad. I took their chef’s special carrot cake. It tasted just like the carrot cakes that we bake at home. Over all the food was fulfilling and complete.

The place is a must try for all those who love to have a relaxed brunch on a lazy Sunday. There are some interesting books that you can pick up and read while you are enjoying the meal. I give this place a 4.5 out of 5 stars.
