Her mail read:

They serve authentic Italian, Continental and Mexican cuisines at Niche Café, which will tickle your taste buds. The food is healthy, fresh and prepared with high-quality ingredients with pronounced creativity. Their services are also prompt. It is served on white cutlery to add to the hygiene.

The aroma of authentic spices is the indicator of the authenticity of this Italian, Continental and Mexican restaurant. The restaurants interior and music give friendly ambience to these cuisines. The restaurant can seat 80 people at a time and has well-laid sofas on one side and chairs on the opposite sides of the tables. The wall décor has murals of modern and ancient era.

The restaurant serves some exotic vegetarian cuisine such as fondue viz. the jalapeno and sun-dried tomato tossed in classic cheese fondue. Basil leaves and pine nuts tossed in classic cheese fondue is another fondue dish.

Niche Café also serves some interesting mocktails, which will help us get some relief from the heat this summer. Niche Café also provides Wi-Fi for all customers at no extra cost. The restaurant is also displaying IPL 2016 Live starting April 9 to May 29; one may enjoy the food at Niche Café.

Our Take: When we reached the café, we were welcomed by Usha’s colleague, Jasmine. She took us to the first floor and introduced us to the owner of the restaurant, Mr. Suresh Kanchan. Then they left us to enjoy the food, though they kept coming back to us to make sure that we were comfortable. We were given a menu card and were asked to choose the dishes by a waiter. We began with broccoli and cheese soup. We loved the crunch of broccoli in it. Our second choice was Caesar salad. Croutons added a crunchy flavour to it. We chose sweet lime juice to refresh ourselves.

The fire chilli nachos were crisp and a little spicy. Next the waiter brought us a fondue stick and a plate full of croutons. In the corner of the plate there was a small ceramic container, which had a heating area below. The basil and pine nuts fondue was being heated and we had to pick up the croutons on the stick to dip in it before eating it. It was quite cheesy because 4 full cheese pieces are used to make it. Then arrived the cottage cheese steak, which was quite spicy. We do not like mushrooms. So the waiter took the trouble to remove all the mushrooms from corn and mushroom on toast. We loved the corny taste that goes with the crisp toast.

We had so many appetizers that there was no place for the main course. Thus we had to end the course with little pieces of blueberry cheese cake and peanut butter tart. The cake was very cheesy and was dripping with it. The peanut butter tart had a choco flavour in it, which we loved.
