Sometimes it’s just not about lunch and dinner, it’s about chitchat and coffee. Strangers’ Reunion , a cozy café nestled away in one of the streets in Outram Park is a place that caters to this idea. The café has expanded now and has comfortable furniture that makes you want to sit and stay. When you go with friends to such a café, it is indeed more the merrier as you get to savor more dessert varieties.
We first ordered the ‘Mocha’ which was so visually pleasing that it could right away be termed as quality latte art on display. If you are a coffee connoisseur, do try this.
We then moved on to the desserts. They have some interesting cakes on display at the counter and we wanted to try different varieties. I had heard about their trademark buttermilk waffles and went right away to order the Buttermilk Waffles with Vanilla Ice cream and fruits. Their waffles were thick and fluffy and had the right amount of crunchiness as you bit into it. The Greek artisan yogurt waffle combination is also recommended.
Some desserts can be sinful delights. The ‘Coffee Cream Cheesecake’ turned out to be exactly that. A good balance of chocolate and coffee meant that it did not leave a lingering bitter taste in the mouth. Highly recommended.
If you have a sweet tooth, go ahead and indulge in the rich ‘Chocolate Therapy’ with a KitKat base that adds a crunchy twist to the dessert.
What drew us to the cafe was the interesting name but what kept us there were the brilliant desserts. Do bear in mind that the desserts were NOT eggless. I am a vegetarian but I do not mind eggs in desserts.

Apt review Deepa – I liked this place quite a bit! For the weight-watchers out there, I recommend the butter-milk pancake with Greek yogurt and fruit (instead of ice-cream). This probably won’t have any fewer calories, but you will feel less guilty…
Also loved the seating arrangements which were ideal for a mid to large group. I actually asked if their tables were for sale too, but sadly they wanted to restrict themselves to the yummy dessert selling business.
Thanks Kais for sharing your dessert and furniture experience and look forward to seeing you around here 🙂
