Coffee and more at Chetty’s Coffee

Weekends are lazy and we usually head out for breakfast! This weekend turned out to be better with an invite from Chetty’s Coffee to try their menu.

Chetty’s Coffee is a small place located on 80 feet road, amongst many other restaurants. Wooden interiors, bright yellow walls with a little place to stand is the best way to describe this outlet 🙂

The menu is designed well, consisting of 8-10 dishes which are simple yet unique. Avalakki Dose, Vegetable Dose, Pickle Dose, Paddu (paniyaram), Anjeer Halwa, Shavige are their special dishes. They also serve the regulars such as Upma, Idli-Vada, and Masala Dose.

Upma-Kesaribath and Shavige, is probably the best way to start any day! Piping hot Upma, delicious kesaribath, and perfect ottu shavige, not to forget the tasty Chutney, which blends well with upma and shavige. This place can change your take on upma, so give it a try even though you’re not a fan of it!

Anjeer halwa packs right amount of sweetness and is an absolute pleasure to indulge in!

Moving on to dose, they serve 3 varieties – Avalakki, Pickle, and Vegetable dose. Avalakki Dose is soft and just melts in the mouth. However, the Pickle dose needs a little work on its taste. The vegetable dose probably leaves you wondering which all vegetables are in it! Needless to say, a different try yet tasty.

Indian breakfasts usually end either with a coffee/chai and in our case, a coffee and masala chai! Masala chai flavors were on point, it’s tough to just stop with one cup!

On the whole, we had an amazing breakfast experience. Since it’s a small joint, take away is the best option. The place is well maintained with quick service. Three cheers to the staff who made sure we had a happy breakfast 🙂 Will surely be back for more.

Cost: ₹200 for two people

Bun Maska Chai – Chai and More!

Simplicity at it’s best! Though the recipes sound so simple at Bun Maska Chai, they are too scrumptious.

Reached the cafe after a long ride of 20 km in rain and traffic. I would say the weather was perfect to try the dishes here. We got to meet the person behind the show. Also, we had an informative talk about BMC.

As we were talking we started off with Shikanjee, an appetizer made up with plums and few other ingredients which got our taste buds high. Continued with Bun Maska. Bun Maska is a famous dish and important part of the menu in any coffee shops of Mumbai, Pune and other cities. It’s nothing but hot Buns smeared with fresh cream & butter and cut along the thickness of the bun. Isn’t it so simple? Yet, mouthwatering dish. Two thumbs up for this, because the buns are made in-house and the blend of fresh cream with butter is on point. We were happy to try the authentic Bun Maska.


Next up was something different, Bun Egg maggie. A dish you must try at BMC. Bun Egg Maggie is our new favorite now – Layers of Maggie and runny egg placed between a bun cut into two along the thickness of the bun with few other spices adding to taste. How much more exciting can it become?

We also tried something called Cheese Kharee. Puffy layers as a base with cheese on it.  Corn and chilli flakes as toppings which add taste to it. Sipped down their special Masala cola, cola and spices mixed in right amounts. A nice drink after Shikanjee!

A small coffee shop with White interiors and well-lit lamps, hand written menu and neat maintenance add to the charm of this cafe. Three cheers to the Happy helpers here. Not to forget, prices are easy on pockets 🙂
