Hauz Khas village is changing at the speed of light, with new restaurants and shops opening seemingly every week. I had heard about Elma’s Bakery & tea House in Hauz Khas for quite a while, so last Friday Sonam and I went there for lunch.
The place is charming, with a real chintzy, English feel to it. A lovely collection of tea-pots is dotted on shelves around the small restaurant, and there is even a tea-pot-covered piano in one corner.
They have lovely china - pretty flowery cups and plates, in different designs, adding to the English tea-shop feel.
We both had smoked salmon sandwiches, which were delicious. Lovely brown bread, generous amount of salmon, but Rs 350 for 4 tiny sandwiches ?
We both had tea. Of course.
I was more adventurous than Sonam and tried echinacea and lemongrass (for serenity, I think it was ).
Nice, but Rs 100 per pot = non-serenity-making.
Sonam had pudding and declared it delicious.
Charming, nice relaxed service. But I think Rs 1500 for sandwiches and tea for 2, and one small pud is expensive.
