Full of beans: Gloria Jean's

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.
