Omlette Festival – Egg-stacy at Cabaret, Baner

Cabaret, Baner, Omlette Festival

Omlette! Perfect breakfast, ideal lunch or a light dinner – the one size fits all meal!

Cabaret, with its slick interiors and black n red furniture screams class. Its diverse menu with an emphasis on east asian food has been taking baner by storm over the past few months since its opening.

They have started an Omlette Festival this month to add a few interesting eggy delights to their menu. I was invited with my family to try out some of these preparations.

Baked Western Omlette:

In all honesty, this was a regular cheese Omlet, with all the bells and whistles. A generous amount of cheese, topped with veggies, the baked omlette is fluffy, and delicious. Served with garlic toast and baked beans, this is one Omlette that you can’t go wrong with.

Morroccon Omlette:

A sunny side up, topped with cherry tomatoes, this does have a hit of spice to it. Chilly oil and chilli flakes made it spicy. Not one for the faint hearted, this one a definitely worth a try.

Japanese Omurice:

The Omurice at Cabaret consists of Chicken fried rice topped with an omlette and barbecue sauce. The bbq sauce was a bit too sweet for my palate, but the fried rice was yummy, leading to this being an excellent brunch item.

Opening hours for Cabaret Baner are 7am daily, making this the perfect breakfast place. Priced at 200/- a pop, the omlette Festival items are at par with all other similar joints in the area.

Definitely one to visit in the near future. The Omlette Festival is on till 28th of Feb. This menu is available at all the Peter Donuts outlets as well.

Vohuman Cafe – The fabled Irani chai

Vohuman Cafe

-Sangeeta Majumdar


Pune has its own share of Irani and Parsi food establishments such as Goodluck cafe, Kayani bakery, Dorabjees, Blue Nile and George restaurants. Vohuman cafe along with its bun-maska, chai and cheese omelette are a long lasting part of this illustrious list – a bite out of Pune’s food legacy.

This was my first visit to this iconic eatery (thanks to my dear friend Payal who literally kidnapped me at 6.30am to drive there for breakfast!)

We started off with the double cheese omelette and toast butter. The omelette was yummy! I liked the distinctive masala that they used in the omelette, plus who doesn’t like cheese!

Toast butter – generous enough with the butter!

Ordered the fabled Irani chai – nice and light. This was round one.

Then we ordered the double cheese toast, and another round of chai, both of us being chai lovers 😉

The Irani Chai

The double cheese toast had a thick slab of cheese sandwiched in between the slices of toast and I gobbled it down it by dipping it in the hot tea, guess that is the right way to have it. My only gripe – I wish the cheese was melted instead. The cheese slabs made it a tad dry

Mounds of ‘maska’

At the end of this all, we were quite full. but yet, we had to have another round of chai. Or maybe just an excuse to sit for a bit longer at the legendary place…

The Breakfast Cafe, Bavdhan

Quite a popular joint in the area, running full capacity almost across all meals, The Breakfast Cafe (TBC) has recently shifted to the back of the building. While the move itself maybe slightly detrimental compared to the prime spot it originally enjoyed on the main road, this has done nothing to impact the quality of food served. It remains, as always, top notch.

If you’re in for breakfast, then you can happily opt for TBC’s Special Set Breakfast. A TBC Special omelet (3 eggs, onions, chili, pepper, garlic – definitely one of the best items on the menu), 1 boiled egg / fried egg, a chicken sausage / 3 nuggets, a hash brown, 2 slices of generously buttered toast and a cup of tea or beautiful strong filter coffee. 

The Breakfast Cafe Special Set Menu

Definitely a superb breakfast place, at par with the best out there. With Sangeeta working just across the road, TBC might just convince me to pick her up more often, just so i can hop in for a quick cup of filter coffee or a TBC special!
