REVIEW: EARTH CAFE

A dairy free cafe in the heart of bandra, at first you might think, oh I’m not vegan so it’s not for me, but one visit and you’re sure to fall in love with the space!
Located at Waterfield Road, firstly I love the name, Earth Cafe, is located above Pernia’s Pop Up and might not be that easy to locate.

As you enter, the airy and bright place will bring a smile on your face, the pink walls, the big clock and the road facing view (with no traffic noise). I went here with a vegan friend and she took over the ordering. We had the vegan pizza (yes, with vegan cheese), Nachos and the Pretty P Cold Coffee which was prepared with Almond Milk, Espresso, Dark Chocolate and Cream.


My coffee was awesome and I really enjoyed the almond milk. The pizza, well, I’ve had vegan pizza before only to be disappointed but I’m happy to share that this one tasted nothing like it, this one was delicious! The Nachos were great too. We also had the cheesecake, which was not as dense as a regular cheesecake, but nevertheless, tasted yummy! If there were more vegan places, that created food like that, I would definitely consider turning vegan. Kudos to the service too, we got some great recommendations from the owner who was around, checking on us from time to time. Another cafe on my list of favourites and what a great job at making a non-vegan enjoy vegan food!

Review: The Nutcracker

Some places just give you a good vibe even before you step in. This was a feeling we got while we waited for a table on a Wednesday evening outside The Nutcracker.

CSC_0017A hole in the wall eatery, this one is a hidden gem. Thoughtfully done up interiors and a romeo-juliet like mini faux balcony next to the brightly lit signboard, made us feel extremely happy to be here.

Without much ado, we placed our order. One Three Cheese Omelette, One Asian Salad, Two Burgers – BlackBean and Soya Spinach Jalapeno, Buttermilk Pancakes and the Seven Layer Cookie. Within minutes our table was filled with exciting looking dishes. The Three Cheese Omelette, which you could choose rolled or fluffy, was quite good but not the best we’ve had. We’d like some more cheese please! The Asian Salad was mind blowing, tasty, tangy, fresh with crunchy veggies tossed in a spicy Asian dressing! The burgers, although a little under seasoned, had a big patty and were not too bready.

The Pancakes were served with Blueberry Compote, butter and Maple Syrup. A little eggy which we could totally overlook as they still tasted yummy. The star of our meal was the Seven Layer Cookie, layered with biscuit crumble, gooey chocolate, butterscotch, almonds and served with a scoop of Ice Cream.

Overall, kudos to the service at The Nutcracker. If they work a little more on their flavours, we are sure this one is going to be crackling!
