Butlers Chocolate Cafe Review by Sadaf Farooqui
Ireland's Butler's Chocolate Cafe opened its doors on Zamzama .Ever Since its opening it has
been doing good business. It
offers chocolate truffles (little round chocolates, shown below), besides the
usual edible cafe fare, to its customers who dine in. A complimentary
chocolate truffle is therefore served here with almost anything you
order. The decor and ambience then seemed more like an a la carte restaurant than a cozy, comfortable
cafe. However, now when you visit on a quiet day (such as a weeknight), you can
enjoy a calm meal, coffee or dessert.
Cheese and Mushroom Omelets – Rs. 340 was really yummy! It was accompanied
by a crumbed, fried potato cutlet, red beans, butter, strawberry jam, and one
quartered slice of bread (I think there should have been two slices). The
melted cheese and mushrooms oozed out of the soft omelet!
Out of this world, and very filling too. A cute little pot of strawberry
jam came with the breakfast. French toast with Maple Syrup – Rs. 295 was quite a disappointment.
Couldn't they have thrown in 3 more similar slices for the price charged? The
only good part was the high-quality maple syrup.
The apple pie
was warm to the core, and with ice cream, the combination was superb! I have
been going to it again recently to have coffee/hot chocolate, and I must say
that the cafe has sustained its quality and a regular clientele ever since the
initial hoopla died down. Sometimes, you might be disappointed when you are
informed that an item on the menu is not available or short (as it happened
once when we ordered a Chocolate
Croissant). I think the
cafe is an abova-the-ordinary outlet, especially if you love chocolates and
would like truffles with whatever you order.
