There are quite a lot of new restaurants springing up in Trivandrum. One of the most popular among these seems to be The Supreme Upper Crust Café and Artisan Patisserie. Located at Kuravankonam Main Road, the place is very easy to find, although parking seemed to be a major problem and I was almost on the verge of dropping the idea of dining here and exploring some other restaurant. However, the café looked way too tempting to give it a miss.
After finally finding a parking spot, my friend and I walked into the café with much excitement. As we walked in, I must say, it was love at first sight – beautifully done green and brown interiors that, true to it’s name, gave a patisserie feel to the place, along with the feel-good, cheery ambience and the comfortable seating. What really caught my eye and impressed me though was the bread counter that had the most diverse varieties of bread, which is rare to find in Trivandrum, and the dessert counter that held quite a few mouthwatering desserts, which included Red Velvet Cake and Spicy Chocolate Cake.
It wasn’t difficult to get a seat, although after we were seated the place started getting crowded and there was a bit of waiting time, since they have a limited number of seats. As we made ourselves comfortable, I couldn’t help but notice the ‘Story of Food’ on the side wall, which detailed how man progressed from a food gatherer to a food grower and how feasts became a part of our folklore, and I fell instantly in love with it. We were provided with the menu as soon as we were seated and it was a pleasure to check out the menu that was a pleasant deviation from the usual Trivandrum food scene.
