Gloria's Jeans is the coffee shop which is closest to our house. It is at Turner Road, Bandra, beside Pot Pourrie.
Kainaz often used to pick her cuppa from there. I prefer Candies which is fairly close too as I love the place (the only restaurant with its own section in my blog, I stopped there for breakfast and tea last evening), the coffee is cheaper and good and they give free lemon tarts/ jelly slices/ marzipan bites with the coffee. Anyway this post is not on Candies so let me move on.
I was sleepily trudging to office the other day. The coffee at home was over. That's when I decided to stop at Gloria's and picked up a cappuccino.
The coffee was nice and strong and left a warm, solid feeling as I sipped it. It did manage to wake me up a bit! I added a bit of cocoa powder to it. The price was Rs 55 (1.5 USD) which makes it cheaper than Coffee World.
The supply for the day had come in when I went in - the sight of the croissants and pastries and brownies were ever so tempting. But I had had some egg white, sprouts and hummus goop before leaving home.
I like their baseline - 'escape the daily grind'. It appeals to my sense of punning.
PS. this is my third attempt at this post. I deleted it by mistake the first time and the net connection broke the second time.
