Dog friendly places in Pune – Number Two!
The first time I tried their caramel cappuccino, I knew I had found my place of comfort. Reading books, catching up with friends, even enjoying a cup of joe with your dog, you can do it all here!
Situated in the quiet lanes of Koregaon park, TFW has two branches. The first one is rather small and the second one is quite lavish in terms of space. Both places have indoor and outdoor seating. One of the most dog-friendly cafes in Pune, TFW has a pet dog of their own, Gucci! Gucci loves to sleep all day. Now, sweet little Gucci is a friendly dog, but she is not fond of other pet visitors. Not to worry! When you want to take your pet over to the café, the owners will take Gucci indoors while you enjoy with your little buddy outdoors. The staff is more than willing to help you out and make sure you are comfortably seated.
Owners, Babita and Robin, came up with the idea of this French-inspired café and believe me, they do every bit of justice to the name. Robin is a friendly guy, who knows his menu well and his recommendations always help clear out the confusion while placing an order. Babita is sweet and is the mastermind behind all these recipes they come up with.
Their coffees have wonderful yet subtle flavors. You won’t need extra sugar. If you are in a mood to cozy-up, try their Belgian dark hot chocolate. You will cry tears of joy! Customize it with some mint if that’s your flavor. And the desserts here are to die for! Try their cupcakes along with your coffee and you will surely thank me! They have banana caramel, red velvet and chocolate flavored cupcakes. Chocolate cupcake is my personal favorite! Christadam is another favorite pastry which has a Passion-fruit center surrounded by hazelnut and chocolate. Rum balls and bailey’s cheesecake have an actual flavor of booze and you are bound to get a kick out of those.
Coming to their food, I have tried almost everything and couldn’t find anything to criticize about. On my last visit, I tried their Goat Cheese and Fig salad and was completely blown away! The crunchiness comes from the almonds added to the salad and it was a delight! Another salad I loved was the Warm Mushroom Confetti. The saltiness of the cheese leaves you craving for more and more. Must try! French onion chicken sandwich was a hit with my sister.
They even take birthday cake orders. My little sister has been getting my cake from here since the past two years! Last year my cake was Opera, which was a Tiramisu cake. This year, my cake was Kaina which had six different textures of chocolate layers in it. No one could stop taking a bite of it. If you are confused about what to exactly order, just ask them. They know their flavors to the core and you won’t be disappointed.
Take your buddy out for a walk or a drive and try this cafe Today! You are in for a real treat!
