10 Bakery and Cafe, Vastrapur, Ahmedabad: Decor
A colorful bakery cafe in front of a boutique, it has both inside and outside seating with large glass windows and doors. This is a small intimate cafe run by a mother-and-daughter team, and you can watch the cooking from your table. The cakes, pastries, desserts, breads and other bakery items are displayed on shelves or in cabinets all around.
Graffiti and framed quotes on the wall keep you amused, while there are little props that enhance the homey feel.
10 Bakery and Cafe, Vastrapur, Ahmedabad: Food
Being a café, the list of beverages is as long or longer than the food menu. Salads are their forte, and some of them like the Citrus Fruity Salad, House Salad and Greek Pasta Salad are pretty good summery salads. The house special is the Spinach Brown Rice Salad, a robust dish with rice, spinach, bell peppers, broccoli and a generous quantity of tofu.The Chickpea Salad and the Garden Vegetable Pasta Salad are vegan friendly. Hummus Salad, Spinach Quinoa, Sprout Salad and Protein Punch will appeal to the health conscious. For starters, try the Toasties – grilled bread with a choice of toppings like creamy mushrooms, corn and spinach, tomato and onion and beans. Besides Durum Wheat Pastas with Alfredo or Arabiatta Sauce, they also have Spaghetti with spinach, lemon basil, pesto or chilli garlic instead of the usual saucy spaghetti dishes you get in most other cafes. The global fusion dishes are made in the home style of the owner like Hong Kong Noodles or Masala Poutine. I tried the Thai Red Curry which was pleasant tasting though it lacked the crisp and sharp taste of spices that are part of the Thai flavor profile.
The range of hot and cold beverages is excellent. I had the Keshot which has cold espresso with ice-cream instead of cream, and an Irani chai are really good. The dark chocolate pastry is pretty good.
