We made an unexpected stop at the new Daily Bread that opened up at J.P.Nagar (next to Shekar Netralaya) and discovered a place full of treats. Stepping into the crisp, cool store was a relief from the harsh, dusty landscape . Though i was disappointed that they didn't have Deluca's gelatto (they have it at the church st. outlet) i was more than consoled by the sight of daintly little pralines and pastries.
This is one of the few places that has a full-fledged coffeeshop (coffees, sandwiches), bakery (all kinds of bread), chocolate shop (need i say more) and at the same time has the relaxed atmosphere of a cafe.
We sat in one of the tables near the giant windows and had a luxurious "Classic Opera" - a gourmet chocolate pastry with a light coffee flavor - along with veg bruschetta..the view may be nothing to write home about, but the food certainly was.
Check out the enticing "Tiramisu in Chocolate Tart" and "Mango Coconut Cream Dome". Also on display were chocolates with creme and fruit centers. We took home some biscotti and a few slices of banana walnut cake...biscotti was ok, cake was great.
Overall, it makes for a good hangout in these parts of the city.
