The posh location, the lavish entrance, the absolutely delectable food is the reason why I’ve fallen for The Rolling Pin. After trying different restaurants weekend-by-weekend, I finally found a soul satisfying cafe in Mumbai.

We went there to try their scrumptious breakfast menu, but instead their dessert menu interested us. THE LOVE FOR DESSERTS SHALL NEVER DIE!

From the moment we stepped out of our car, we had fallen in love with the place. The entire setup exhibits the feeling of London in Mumbai. I love how these small parts of Mumbai, make the city liveable. The Rolling Pin is a perfect getaway cafe after a long day at work, and an absolutely apt destination to chill at the weekends.

Enough of the location, let’s get talking about the real deal.

FOOD!

I’ve irrevocably fallen in love with The Rolling Pin’s Menu! When you read it, you want it all. Every dish on the menu sounds delectable. They put you in a fix over what to order.

 

Check the menu out here:

Here are some of my favourites-

  • Pancakes with honey & blueberry compote (We also asked for cream cheese to go with the pancakes 😉 )
  • Mexican Tycoon
  • Raspberry Princess
  • Chocolate Mousse Bar

The lovely captures of my favourites!

Everything else was beyond compare.

Would I go there again? YES, a thousand times over!

27 Sublime Locations to Enjoy Breakfast in Mumbai!

Breakfast in Mumbai is ignored more than anything in this maximum city!

Breakfast is undoubtedly the most important meal of every person’s life. Well, at least it should be, as we all know that breakfast sets the tone for the rest of the day!

We are all aware of how competitive the life is today. Blessed are those who don’t have to rush anywhere in the morning, and actually have the time to take it slow!

Well, that’s 20% of us!

The rest of us don’t even have a minute to spare from our everyday routine. Thus, breakfast in Mumbai means different for different people. Some may settle down with quick sunny-side up eggs, while others are blessed with wholesome snacks. In today’s time it is reduced to coffee on the go!

Moreover, coffee is Instagramable too!

Whichever is the case, it’s for sure the most essential meal of the day. There’s even a quote about how important breakfast is, “One should not attend even the end of the world without a good breakfast”.

While most of us rush every morning, breakfasts are hardly given any importance. When was the last time you spent an hour to make, enjoy, and finish your breakfast?

I guess never!

It’s one thing to be tired of making your own breakfast, and another to ignore it to the core! We all fantasize about a lip smacking breakfast exactly for 3 seconds when we wake up.

Well, it’s time to serve that fantasy!

Because, breakfast in Mumbai should not be disappointing. We are the city of food, and the city that never sleeps.

Here are some restaurants that serve breakfast in Mumbai that will change your idea of breakfast; they will keep you fuelled till lunch!

So, feed your breakfast fantasy, and look no further than these 27 breakfast joints in Mumbai!

Every bookworm may not be a foodie, but The Homemade Cafe is a place to be in for those who are. With literally the best books to tease your brain, this cafe exists to win your heart.

The Homemade Cafe is relatively new to Mumbai but by the looks of it has rooted itself deep in the city. The gorgeousness of the place is enough to allure people of all ages to come and relax amidst food and books.

So, let’s begin with where is The Homemade Cafe located?

The cafe is located on the main Oshiwara road to awe every passer by. The Homemade Cafe is so alluring that you would be blind to miss it while passing by. The floral upholstery, blue exteriors, the chalk board and the beautiful, white Christmas tree (temporary) is impossible to dislike. This cafe is a venture by three friends, with roots in Bollywood. Thus, it never fails to look beautiful. Be it with the exteriors, the interiors or on the plate!

The-Homemade-Cafe IMG_20151112_191807

 

Let’s jump to how good the food is-

I must say that this cafe is blessed with the most creative chef and an interesting menu. The menu serves everything from scrumptious breakfast to Goan Fish curry with Basmati rice.

As they claim that they cook food that tastes similar to what you eat back home, we thought of giving some of it a try. After trying quite a few dishes, we have to agree that the food does make you nostalgic. It’s just like back at home, with some of the best dishes. Overall, you’re bound to fall in love with the food there!

IMG_20151225_164710 IMG_20151225_164324 IMG_20151112_184516

 

Must eat food when at The Homemade Cafe-

I highly recommend- Cold Coffee, Eggs Benedict, Penne in Porcini Cream Sauce, Chicken Fingers with Mustard Mayo, Goan Fish curry and Sri Lankan Curry.

Want to know the best part? The Homemade Cafe kitchen introduces a new dish almost every week. A plus for foodies like me to visit it over and over again!

IMG_20151225_164906

 

When should you visit The Homemade Cafe?

When you’re missing Europe! The exterior of this cafe brings Europe to Bombay. Apart from this, you must visit The Homemade Cafe when you want to indulge in good food, and spend quality time with your loved ones!

When should you avoid visiting The Homemade Cafe?

When you’re actually craving for desserts. The Homemade Cafe is a great place but, it doesn’t really offer you the best of desserts. In fact, they have only one on their menu. You gotta check with the chef for the dessert.

Otherwise, it’s an amazing cafe to hangout with friends!

And look! I spotted Prof. Trelawny practising Divination.

And look! I spotted Prof. Trelawny practising Divination.

They give your cheque in a book! Oh how they don't want you to leave!

They give your cheque in a book! Oh how they don’t want you to leave!

Northern Tadka; spread across three different locations in Mumbai, is known to have mouth-watering starters and delicious North Indian food. I recently visited a chain of this restaurant in Andheri-west, and realized how much I love the food and the service here. I have been to Northern Tadka quite a few times now, and have also ordered in from Northern Tadka through FoodPanda! It’s more or less becoming a second home for me and my family.

As I realized all of this, I asked myself what is it about Northern Tadka that has me visiting it over and over again.

It wasn’t rocket science to figure out the answer! So, I answered myself a second after asking the question!

The beguiling service, appealing and homely interiors, and the absolutely eye-pleasing and mouth-watering food got me coming again and again to Northern Tadka. The music they play and the dim lights have an extremely soothing effect on one’s mind. After a long day at work; isn’t relaxation what we all are looking for? Northern Tadka is great for unwinding after work, to loosen up and catch up with some friends.

They have elaborative food dishes on the menu, giving you lots of options to choose from. The starters are rich in taste, juicy, and worth every penny you pay. I have too many favorites to pen down but, Dhuaandar Murgh Tikka and Dilliwala Chilli Paneer have to be my absolute favorites.

In main course, I have often ordered the ultimate food delicacy of all time Murgh Tikka Biryani. They serve the biryani with good quantity of raita, which is like cherry on top of the cake! The biryani comes with good amount of gravy, and is absolutely delicious. Their Mithai section has limited options but, they are enough! With something as tempting as Jalebiyaan with Rabri, Malai Kulfi, Gulab Jamun could you need anything else? In fact, it’s difficult to zero down on one among these!

North Indian cuisine has a royal taste to it, which one instantly gets addicted to. I’m in absolute awe of this inexpensive restaurant, and I’m sure you will start loving it too!

You can now order food from FoodPanda with amazing deals on Northern Tadka!
