A well laid out Brunch in a relaxed environment !
Rating – 4/5.
This place has come up fairly recently and comes as a breath of fresh air when I compare most of the cafes/lounges which are standard indoor seating stuff. This one has one entire dedicated open air area covered with canopies to give you that relaxed Brunch experience with your loved ones with a live musical performance to give you that chill out feel !
The Ambience – They have a rooftop setting (wasn’t active when I visited), a fairly decent indoor decor but the one where we sat and relished our Sunday Brunch with a musical performance in the background was their outdoor setting. This is ideal for that perfect winter afternoon (or whatever winter we get here in Pune 🙂
The Drinks – The Bartender’s special (in the second pic) was a fantastic drink and true to its name was indeed special with a milk/creme base, it was closer to your usual Pina-Colada but didn’t have that coconutty flavor thankfully and the strawberry flavor went really well for me.
There were quite a few other options too with bases of Lychee, Curacao, Watermelon and Kiwi etc. I do bicker a lot about places which don’t serve decent options in Mocktails but no complaints here at all in this regard.
The Food – Coming right to the point this Sunday brunch with unlimited food at 799++ is one of the best Sunday brunches that are available in Pune. The atmosphere was further accentuated by some fantastic singing by Ashish Mehrotra .
Some of my must try recommendations would be ️Thecha Mushroom, ️Chicken Satay, ️Chicken Pesto Kebab, ️Veg Exotica Pizza, ️Thai Grilled Fish, ️White Sauce Pasta. The Pizza & Pasta need a special mention, these two items are just perfect for kids with a lot of gooey cheese at disposal in both the dishes that the kids are just bound to love.
️In the frame is butter chicken that went pretty well with the accompanying butter naans, it wasn’t the best butter chicken if you compare it with what you get in the North but by the Pune standards it was pretty decent if a tad little sweet than I would have liked ! The Chocolate Brownie was pretty standard stuff so nothing much to write home about as it was a decent preparation.
The Verdict – The combination of a variety of aforementioned elements made this a Sunday brunch to remember and it comes in two other options too (swipe left till last) at 1099++ and 1399++ for unlimited beer/sangria/wine cooler and IMFL/Selected Cocktails/Beer/Sangria/Wine coolers respectively !
