Elma's Bakery, Cakes and Tea Room, Delhi – Rs. 400 per person


It rarely happens that a new bakery opens in town and I miss a visit. Like always, I was one of the few to visit Elma’s just during its soft opening in Hauz Khas Village. This 20-cover bakery and tea room is furnished with British-style décor and adorned with a variety of tea cups. The place welcomes you to a pleasant aroma for fresh baked scones. One look at the display counter and you would want to eat all that it has to offer. I picked a Croissant sandwich with French press coffee. The coffee was nothing exquisite, rather too runny, but the croissant spoke highly of the chef’s skills. The other offerings include estate teas from Coonoor. Chef Shelly Sahay is a Le Cordon Bleu trained chef; the marvelous Apple Crumble Cheesecake, Scones and Lemon Meringue Tart reaffirms chef’s competency. One can pick up breads for home, their signature being the Bacon Loaf. A must visit for the baked dishes, give the beverages a skip. 24/1, first floor, Hauz Khas Village, New Delhi
