These days, if you are in Cochin, a visit to Lulu Mall is on everyone’s to-do list. Home to quite a few popular fashion brands, the mall also houses some amazing dine out options. Located on the second floor, next to PVR Cinemas, Bloomsbury’s Boutique Café and Artisan Bakery is one such place. The smell that wafts out of the café is tempting enough to give it a try. Trust me, once you do that, you will not be let down.
I’ve been eyeing this place for a long time now. I finally got to visit it when meeting a friend on a Saturday afternoon. Although it was a weekend, it was not crowded. We were ushered in by the friendly staff who guided me to the table where my friend and her daughter were waiting for us. While we were provided with the menu, the kids were given a colouring sheet and a couple of crayons to entertain themselves (a few extra brownie points to the café from us mothers for that).
After scouting the menu that was full of delectable options, we ordered a Falafel and Garlic Aioli Arabic Pita Pocket and a Pan Fried Fish Fillet. For the kids, we ordered a Pasta in White Sauce from their kiddie menu. We didn’t have to wait much for the food to come and it struck the right cord in terms of presentation.
