Shakespeare said ‘What’s in a name? That which we call a rose, by any other name would smell as sweet.’
But then, won’t there be confusion? Like if a rose is not a rose, then what finally is a rose? And what is ‘the rose that is not a rose’? My God, that’s one too many roses! What we are trying to say is….confusion!
But do not be confused by the name Coffee Break that you see when you spot this place from afar. It is not just for coffee. Bistro @ Coffee Break is a newly opened bistro in Bandra (located near Chaayos/Salt Water Café). It serves quite a few coffee and smoothie variants along with a vast menu spread around pizza, sandwiches, burgers, tacos, quesadillas and more!
There is an indoor AC section with two tables to accommodate groups of 4-3 each and a bigger outdoor section. Indoors are brightly lit where lies a very misplaced chandelier, a few books and coffee mugs. The music was really good and peppy! The counter has a huge board displaying what we are assuming to be their specials – tacos, burgers and shakes.
There is also a display of sandwiches, puffs, and desserts. What we loved the most about the menu was the variety of portion sizes. They have a small and large option available in most of their beverages, from coffee to coolers. As also for Pizza, there is an 8″ and a 10″ option. Unfortunately, no vegetarian options are available for the burgers.
We decided to hogg on pizza this time around!
Tikka Pizza – Small pieces of paneer with onions, capsicum and cheese on a tomato sauce base.
Sicily – Lots of sundried tomatoes, onions, basil leaves and cheese.
We liked both the options, they were adequately loaded and made well but were on the drier side. Perhaps a little more of the base sauce and these would be lip-smacking!
From the coolers, we had a Strawberry Splash and Mint Splash. Both are fizzy options and very well made. The fizz lasted until almost the end which is a plus!
Head to Bistro @ Coffee Break for a good meal the next time you are here. We hear the burgers are good (but we can’t judge them for you) or maybe you could try Deep Fried Oreos?
