long overdue review...
I've been a regular visitor ever since its inception, being aptly located between the Hiranandani bus stop and my building. And it never fails to impress me. It is one of my solaces in times of hunger and when my wallet is generous with cash. I can just walk in anytime and pick up a parcel, a drink or sit in with a laptop while having one of the many amazing baked products that they keep. Everything is freshly baked out there. The bread, the appetizers and the desserts. You can actually smell the waft of baking bread in the morning and I used to just stop there for a few seconds to be allured by it. The cakes are pretty pricey but delicious. One of the best bow-tied bakeries I've been to in bombay.
I think its a bunch of bad waiters working at this place.......I had placed an order for an eggless cake to be picked up at a particular time on a specific day, however when i reached there to pick it up, I was told ill have to wait for 5 mins as they had made my cake with egg instead of making it eggless............I have absolutely no idea how any one was going to make a 1 kg birthday cake in 5 mins...when they could not get it right in 4 days when there were specific instructions written down on the receipt that i was given for he cake to be made eggless and to be kept in the freezer before i could pick it up............absolutely pathetic service I must say......spoiled my entire day as I could not get a cake in time.
Now this is where I normally have my Sunday breakfast at, but of course, its not your typical breakfast place. But for me, its the muffins, the Popeye sandwich and the cheese n egg sandwich with coffee. I love their sandwiches coz their bread is absolutely amazing. Its fresh, soft, well crusted and smells heavenly and you have the option to choose which bread. I prefer multigrain. As for muffins, they're soft, fresh and well flavored to their respectful flavour. What I like about this place is the variety of items that you get in both non-veg and veg. Stuff that you normally don't find in other bakeries where they sell you standard items. And you HAVE to try the Japanese cheese cake, especially if you're someone who loves cheesecake and you're trying to avoid the cream. So full marks for taste, variety and consistency.
I love the way the kitchen or baking section is clearly open and you can see them prepare each item and its so organised and assuring. So full marks for cleanliness and hygiene too. There is a small seating area with 4 to 5 tables. Its a self service bakery where you can pick up the items you want in a tray and I like that coz I like to take my time in choosing the item myself and not keep the counter waiting as in other places. They could improve on the coffee. Overall I sincerely think they deserve a 5 on 5 for their taste, freshness, variety, hygiene and ambiance/setup.
Bread Talk has amazing cakes that are on display,they are fresh and yummmmmm........ but they could really screw up an occasion especially if you have ordered for a customized cake. For a baby shower I asked for a cake that should not have been pink or blue cos we were unsure and they messed it up by making it pink. Gave them a second chance and The Pink Princess Cake for my niece was a disaster again.
Excellent but Expensive!
Lovely aromas will lure you through their glass doors and have you sifting through their food before you know it. Bread is freshly baked and so are their cakes. Sandwiches however are mediocre with a limited (and often not available) selection of fillings. Wish they had more coffee options too.
Recommendations: Peanut milk bread, their muffins, loaves of bread and above all, the heavenly Japanese light cheese cake.
Heavenly aroma of freshly baked bread
This trendy bakery is slightly overpriced but incredible freshly baked breads, muffins, pastries and more. Breads are slightly sweet and one of the very best are the french toasts. Variety of puffs, and sausage/kebab rolls offers good options for a quick bite. try having their Japanese cheesecake.
Bread talk, Powai speaks of a new food culture where youd find interesting and innovative preparations of bread and fillings. Though the food here may fall quite heavy on your wallet, its compensated for the best quality of bread. Theres perfection in their bread preparations, its evident through the hypnotizing aroma. Dont forget to taste cheese cake and you must explore the pastries out here, its rich in taste and creamy. There are some good non-veg bread rolls which I bet are difficult to find elsewhere. The presentation of food is pleasing to the eye. So get yourself a mouth watering treat!
Either Needs an overhaul or needs to be shut
Bread Talk either Needs an overhaul or needs to be shut down.
Had the misfortune of visiting the place this evening. The hygiene is terrible. The ladies at the counter use the same dirty piece of cloth to clean and wipe everything. One is asked to eat straight out of the tray wiped with this cloth. There are no paper plates. No disposable plastic knives / forks. One eats with ones fingers.
This at outrageous prices - a muffin costing Rs 45/- elsewhere costs Rs. 75/- here - and the quality is nothing to write home about.
When I asked the lady at the counter for a feedback form / comments book, I was told a blatant lie that - there wasn't any. A raise in voice decibels had the desired effect and one was produced. The comments in the book included finding a cockroach in the food, amongst others.
In a nutshell AVOID.
its ma fav
ive been a regular visitor since 1 yr i guess..n im still not bored of it..their muffins/ sandwitches/ are aweosme not doubt bt wht literally takes the cake..:D..is their japanese cheese cake..which is a bit over priced..bt still totally worth it..if u are a cake lover. u'll simply love it..and another fav is a peanut cream snack kinda stuff..which is totally yummy..for these two atleast its worth a visit!!
Have been there multiple times, and I daresay this is one of the least VFM places I have ever been to (and I happen to love Peshawari at ITC!)
For the prices they charge, the quality isnt specacular...yes, everything is usually fresh, but 60 bucks for a plain piece of bread with around 5 shavings of cheese on it??!
Would go there if you're rich, earn in $s, or are just so obsessed with eating bread right out of the oven that you'll pay anything.
I was visiting the Nature's Basket next door when I saw the muffins on display here - huge!! Had to go in. And then had to goggle and cram, as I wasn't that hungry. Have returned to this place time and again, and am yet to be disappointed.
The baked-goodness fragrance hits you the minute you enter, which is why, I think, after so many visits, I only recently tried their sandwiches. They are really good - fresh and tasty. Their muffins are to die for - especially their chocolate and blueberry ones. You can even see them bake some btw. Also try their sponge cake - they usually have it at their counter side.
Drinks are a bit of a disappointment though - only bottled or tetrapack-ed ones, nothing fresh.
The huge place, white interiors, glass doors all contribute to a good ambiance. A few more tables wont hurt, though, especially during lunch hour.
Oh, and they have really good desserts and a wide selection of breads and other baked goodies like croissants, buns etc.
A little on the expensive side, yes. But haven't been disappointed at this place yet. Hope that continues...
Bread Talk is part of a Singapore based chain and I believe they have branches all over the world. Bread talk is the pefect addition to Powai that to be honest is really starved of good restaurants. Bread Talk isnt located in the middle of Hiranadani(which is a good thing) and is at the end of a lane and can be easily missed if you dont know about the place. The interiors are open and bright giving a nice roomey feel to the whole restaurant. The open kitchen adds to the space and its an added bonus when you can see them playing with the icing and making all your food fresh. Bread Talk has about 4 tables but this isnt really a problem as about 70-80% of customers order takeout. The restaurant is based on teh self serve model which in this case works really well. Theres a counter where all the food is kept and you pick up whatever you want onto a tray and pay when your done. The only negative aspect about this is that some people dont use the tongs and touch the food with their hands which really grosses me out. Comming to the food. Its nothing fancy just a couple of puffs, rolls and croissants. They have a butter chicken puff, a smoked white chicken puff a pizza puff and kheema puff all of which are delicious. Their chocolate croissants are pretty good too. Their selection is pretty good and everything is above average. They also have a sandwhich bad but to be honest Id reccomend you stick to the puffs. Their desert section is pretty limited though they do have a decent mango and strawberry mousse. Other thigns that breadtalk offers is a variety of breads including multigrain and french bread. The service here is pretty good. Nothing overly impressive considering the limited role they play. Overall I welcome bread talk as a welcome change from Birdys and is sometihng that Powai really needed.
