La Folie Lab at Bandra - awesome pastry & savoury filled croissants

Display of pastry

Live preparation of food in open kitchen

Had been planning to visit it since it opened  and then managed to visit it 3 times in 3 days!

So here’s my take

Obviously the pastries are amazing. my favourites are the pecan pie, the Paris Brest is to die for (ParisBrest is a French dessert, made of choux pastry and a praline flavoured cream) and the lemon filled éclair is yummy

Pecan Pie

Filled croissant - vegetarian

The savoury menu is available only till 6:30 pm though coffees, pastry and shakes are available till 11:30 pm

The filled croissants are good – both the croque monsieur as well as the vegetarian option with goats cheese are delicious

There are only 2 tables inside in the air-conditioned space and possibly 8 high stools around the counter, if you don’t snag those then you will have to sit outside alfresco– and watch the world go by on Hill Rd

The variety of coffee is amazing and I strongly recommend you visit and have a coffee and croissant/pastry even if alone

Coffee Selection 

You can entertain yourself watching the staff prepare pastries and the salads and sandwiches

Several varieties of bread are available - very Parisian

The only negative I noticed was that when I visited on a Sunday the service was extra slow and the seasonings/fillings were not the same as when the café was less crowded. Possibly teething problems, I hope it gets sorted soon
