Just Bake Shop Minto Park.


Recently on a sunday afternoon i was trudging down Minto Park , saw the just bake shop though it has opened a year back , i never entered it ......from the outside the shop looked  clean .......went inside with my daughter the price tag was reasonable ......tasted a a chochlate pastry  the first item was okay , then tasted the

second one which was hard does not mean you compromise on quality , overall i can say that the staff was good .. but if the bakery has to stand a chance before kookie jar or cakes has to increase variety and QUALITY.

Flurys the only original tea room in India

 I think flurys requires no introduction in india or abroad we have been going to flurys from the day we have gained sense , i have been to flurys at park street in the old times and also in the new avatar the new one is much better then the old one .....i like the best item in flurys is the
beans on toast

it is simple out of the world .......i dont find any comparision of it ......

secondly i like the bread  and pastry products of flurys 

the bakery section is good but sorely miss the pineapple tart , kismiss buns variety which they have stopped making 
new addition dark chochlates are good but require some refinement ..

well flurys cannot end with a cup of darjeeling tea .....i find the new place has better service peole who are more courteous ....

the new  flurys   

the charm of old flurys  still remains in us  which  was some what like this 

I hope that this will help people rememeber the old flurys  which shifted to T# bang opposite park street flurys.

 i thank Sangeet Kothari and mabaker whose photo i have used.
flurys have gone online  ......

you can reach flurys  using google  maps  
click on the link below

Happy eating in flurys .........
