It is 6.30 pm on a bitterly cold New Year’s Eve when I go into the pretty bakery “Bread & More” in Vasant Vihar.

There isn’t much bread on the shelves, but before I can say a word, one of the staff members tells me fresh bread will be delivered in half an hour.

How late will they stay open, I ask.

Till 10pm I’m told with a smile.

And are you closed tomorrow, New Year’s Day?

No madam, we open at 9am.  9am-10pm every day.


Since this branch of the original GK bakery opened in our neighbourhood, we have had nothing but brilliant service, and even more brilliant bread.  The baguettes are as near perfect as you could wish for –  and that is always the litmus test of a good bakery.

Charming service, pretty décor, even a little outside pavement café a la française – le tout est parfait.

Highly recommended.

We haven’t tried any of the cakes, for no reason other than we are not “cake people”, but everything looks delicious and I have heard great things.


And what I also like is the fact that in a city not known for prettying up things –  anything to save money and cut corners – “Bread & More” is pretty.  They have lovely lighting, for example.
