Cafe “Here & Now” is already loved among the food community for serving such an amazing breakfast in the city. Recently, they have added some more options on their menu which are worth a bite. I surprisingly went here for a “Breakfast for Dinner” meals. Thankfully they serve all-day breakfast. And it’s a heaven if you are a non-vegetarian.
The first thing which caught my eye is the very catchy names of the food items on the menu. For the starter, I had “Egg Pops”- deep-fried egg crowned with yolk and mayo and “Prawn Piggy Wrap”- a classic bacon wrap cooked to perfection. The “Can’t Get Any Pigger”, is a spread of pork sausage, bacon & ham, accompanied by eggs, mushrooms, grilled tomato, and mashed potato. It’s an absolute delight if you eat pork. The “Sweet Potat’o’mine”, is a sweet potato hash cake with crispy bacon-filled inside served on a bed of sauteed spinach and fried eggs. This was my favorite here.
From their Omelettes section, I had, a “Mamma Mia”- it’s like a pizza omelet filled with barbeque chicken, chicken salami and lots of cheese, and a “Meaty Minion”, a stuffing of chicken, bacon, cheese, and tomatoes, it’s as meaty as it sounds. Lastly, I had a “Pull Me Closer”, it’s prepared with slow-cooked pork with mushrooms, jalapenos, cheese, and pepperoni. Isn’t it pulling you closer already?
Lastly, I had a “Chicken Frankenstein” sandwich, a generous layering of grilled chicken, chicken salami & benevolent egg. And for the dessert, I had “Panky Doos”, a pancake overloaded with ice-cream, pineapple, caramelized apple, and cashews. The fresh fruits really worked wonder over here.
This is a very lively place to hang out. I just felt they could cut down the use of eggs in a few of the dishes. The ambiance is very zestful. They got a small playroom with carrom, foosball, etc. A small section to hit a few strings (guitar). The service is very prompt & the owner is very welcoming.
