Doolally Pune – The 1st Brewhouse

Reading Time: 3 minutes

Friday evening plans were being discussed, and initially the choices were between a friend’s place or Kiva’s / some other place, when we decided to check out Doolally Pune, home to the city’s first microbrewery and derived from “Deolali”, an army cantonment near Nashik.

I’d been meaning to visit the place ever since I ‘met’ one of the co-founders (Suketu) on Twitter 2-3 months ago. At the time, I’d tweeted about getting some Belgian beers from Bangalore and he replied saying I just had to visit Doolally to check out the real thing. Added to this was the fact that it was located at The Corinthians Boutique Hotel in the NIBM / Kondhwa area, “our” side of town or “nadi ke us paar” as we keep saying.


An idyllic afternoon and a snack at The French Loaf Pune

Reading Time: 2 minutes

A friend and I were out for a drive earlier in the week, and as the morning gave way to afternoon, we started feeling hungry. After fixing on the area (Koregaon Park), the next thing was to decide the place.

Neither of us was in the mood for a ‘proper’ lunch, rather a quick snack kinda thing. Several names popped up like Post 91, Italicks, Mocha, Prems et al, when she suggested ‘French Loaf’, as she’d been there before.


Breakfast at The Egg Factory Bangalore

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Woke up to a lazy Sunday morning and plans of driving down towards Mysore Road for breakfast. However, we eventually decided to check out The Egg Factory.

Situated off St. Mark’s Road, the entrance is quite nondescript enough, and it is housed in a building called “Whitehouse”. As we neared the main door, we saw a sign saying the place would be closed on 28th September and all of us were mentally relieved we’d come on the right day.
