Bombay Brasserie, Quest Mall
This modern-Indian brand is known to take you on a culinary trip across the country through its flavourful food. Created by using traditional ingredients sourced from various regions, the dishes are loved and adored by all. Its dessert menu is just as experimental; sweet and surprising!
I GOAT Your Back: For one of the most off-beat dessert experiences make sure to order the Bombay Ice Cream Sandwich. This nostalgia inducing combo includes different flavours of ice cream sandwiched between Jim-Jam, Parle G and Bourbon biscuits.
Serafina, the city’s only North Italian restaurant, serves mouth-watering pizzas, good wine, and satisfying pastas. But the real reason we keep going back is for its incredible ‘dolci’ menu. The desserts are authentic and perfect to end a comforting meal with.
I GOAT Your Back:The Tiramisu here is perfectly fluffy and light just like one an Italian nonna would make. The finishing touch — a dash of coffee — makes it an easy classic.
Flurys, Park Street
Since its launch in 1927, this elegantly designed tearoom has been serving the city’s best European cakes and pastries. Over the decades that followed, it’s become an essential part of Kolkata’s culture and a go-to for coffee, breakfast and sweet-treats.
I GOAT Your Back: We recommend trying the Chocolate Cupcake here if you’re feeling extra decadent. Rich and topped with fluffy icing, its sweetness will take you on a trip down memory lane for sure.
Monkey Bar, Camac Street Area
Known for its quirky and fun vibe, Monkey Bar aims to please with its enticing menu. Hugely popular amongst the younger crowd, this gastro-pub is inspired by New York and yet, unabashedly Indian. Backed by superb food and service, it’s innovative, affordable and cool.
I GOAT Your Back: We are big fans of Monkey Bar’s Chocolate Lava Cake, but all the creations on the menu do nothing less than deliver on all counts.
London Bubble Co, Salt Lake
If you’re looking for something that truly stands out when it comes to desserts, make sure to visit London Bubble Co. LBC has unique variations of waffles such as bubble waffle wraps, pocket waffles and bubble milkshakes. No doubt it’s a highlight in our list when it comes to the best dessert places in Kolkata!
I GOAT Your Back: LBC’s take on the classic Hong Kong street food, the Bubble Waffle here is ice cream’s (and our) new best friend.
