Our Date At Brioche Dorée

Mar 14th 2019 at 1:31 AM

If you are someone who doesn’t know how to pick a good place for a dinner date, we have something in common. It is a task I prefer leaving to my foodie girlfriend. She always picks out great places with great food; for me, it is a huge ordeal. But every once in a while it’s my time to pick and I get flustered with the myriads of options that are there. This was one such occasion, we had chosen a day, and had planned a date at the noon. But I hadn’t picked the place. I had searched for the whole morning on my phone for good cafe restaurants in CP but it only got me more confused. I had already told her that I had picked a place, and was keeping it a surprise.

Eventually, I had to turn to a close friend of mine at work for help. I asked her if she knew any nice cafe for couples in CP. To which she said, “How about Brioche Dorée? They serve authentic French cuisine and Diya will love their colorfully layered Rainbow Rumble cake.” In no time I was convinced and pinged Diya the location on her Whatsapp. She seemed excited when I mentioned that they have a rainbow cake. I, however, was nervous as I knew she knew been to most cafe restaurants in CP.

At 12.30 we both met at Connaught place metro and reached the spot after a 5-7 minute walk. I was worried as I didn’t know anything about this cake bakery in Connaught place, and there are plenty of them there. The place has a welcoming atmosphere and artful decor in warm colors of green, yellow, and grey. I looked at her and her smile told me that she was impressed.

We took our seats and our ears were cheered by the soothing sound of a clarinet. She ordered herself a Cranberry ice tea and I got me a vanilla tea, to begin with. We were there for something light but once we saw the rainbow cake at the showcase it was hard to resist. Although we always ate dessert at the end, we ended up ordering the Rainbow Rumble cake at the beginning of our meal. While I dug into my share right away, she took some photos for her Instagram. I was glad that she was enjoying the experience. After taking a bite she commented “You know, I have always searched for a French cake bakery in Connaught place. This is it. I totally love this spot.” And in my mind, I was thanking Parul for the suggestion.

We ended up trying a couple more cuisines after our cake. An Instagram worthy artichoke & mushroom pizza puff as she called it and a Paneer & Curry Quick Bowl were served to us in minutes. By the end, we had our bellies full, yet craving more and more. So, we bought ourselves some Apple Puff pastry for our dinner at home. A month later Diya and I ended up celebrating our one year anniversary at Brioche Dorée only. Plus it has become our favorite cake shop at CP, and no celebration goes by without a cake from Brioche Dorée. To the ones who find it difficult to choose the right place for a date, this cafe restaurants in CP is the perfect place to pick. People won’t gawk at you, the staff here is nice and polite, the atmosphere is soothing, and the food leaves you craving for more.
