Inside the 57-year-old café, you’ll find vintage posters, an antique clock and a traditional brass call bell. Being an Irani cafe, its Parsi dishes are obviously great, but Yazdani Bakery’s twelve-seed multi-grain bread and ginger biscuits that are specially made during the Christmas season are simply the best!

Since its opening in 2004, Theobroma has taken over a large pie of the cake market with its sinful offerings — macaroons, tarts, mousse cakes, cupcakes, cookies, cheesecakes, brownies; they have all things indulgent. It is one of the best places to go for cakes and artisanal breads in Mumbai.
