Veggie & Waffichilious

Recently opened on Hill Road Bandra opposite Else Arcade, it’s a dessert-lover’s delight and offers a vast menu of chocolate drinks, mocktails, hot chocolate and more.

A large space, it’s well done up with bicycle art and old Mumbai prints on the wall. And a marble mandir. They sell pastries too. Loud music but they were kind enough to lower the volume so we could chat.

We went for an early lunch and honestly had great difficulty choosing from the vast variety of items on the menu: pizza, pasta, fondue, panino, waffwich (sandwich made using waffles instead of bread), crepes, soups, appetisers, fries, croque monsieur, burgers, crostini, cheese toast, sizzlers, Asian platters, Indian platters and more.

And that’s when it struck us – this is a vegetarian restaurant!

So we opted for Philly Cheese and Chili Waffwich and a Spinach Corn and Cheese Panino washed down with expressos.

Service was prompt and good!

Coffee was good and so was the Panino. The surprise was the Waffwich which though labelled savoury was a sandwich made out of the sweet waffle with chocolate drizzled on the plate!

This Restro Café has a lot of potential with its huge menu catering for all food likes!

I also liked its valet parking facility and easy access for those with mobility issues.

Also, given the price points and good-sized helpings and the extended timings, I see this to be a big attraction for the youth!

And though I am not a fan of vegetarian restaurants, I do see a trend with so many cafés like Tea Villa Café, All Elements Café, 10th Street Café and now Trench, all nearby and drawing crowds!
