Stopping by for breakfast at Baker Street was indeed one of the best part of the Pondicherry vacay. Exploring White Town and trying the authentic French breakfast served in the bakeries was on the to-do-list for quite a while. This morning at Bakers Street satiated the cravings for authentic French breakfast.
Set in Rue Bussy lane of the French Colony this place is clearly noticeable if you are passing by the street. It is a upmarket French-style bakery with delicacies displayed on one end of the narrow cafe, while seating arrangement is provided on the other. The decor and the interiors are in perfect harmony with the innovative concept of the unique French bakery in India.
Baker Street serve cakes, croissants, biscuits, baguettes, brownies and quiches. It follows self service and your order is served quickly. Also, Baker Street is one of the few bakeries and cafes that is open this early in the morning. We went there around 7.30 and it was buzzing with foreign travellers and a bunch of Indian tourists.
Baker Street radiates an old-world charm and makes you feel as if you’ve entered a coffee lounge in Europe. It is filled with travellers stopping by for a quick breakfast before they head to explore the place. So overall, it has an amazing vibe to it. Just what I was looking for during my day one in Pondicherry.
We were spoilt for choice with a plethora of delicacies to order from. But we had to make a choice. Even though the decision was touch, we decided to try a croissant. Instead of going for the sweet croissant, we asked for the stuffed Chicken croissant. It was one of the best I ever had.
Next up was the Chocolate Eclair. The French are known for their éclairs, so this was a must try. It was sinfully delicious and I wouldn’t want to have another Eclair anywhere else soon. The Coco Choco was marvellously blended and made for an amazing dessert. We washed down our breakfast with cups of South Indian filter coffee. And with this, we were set to explore the little Indian France.
