I truly agree to the opening lines.
Hello Foodies … It’s finally here and it’s what all you’ve been waiting for. It’s the French Bakery and Cafe that we all wanted soon to land up.
Introducing The Artful Baker, a patisserie and Boulangerie café. Get ready to romp on delicious cakes, croissants, breads and many other sweet and savory items at the pop-up of The Artful Baker which is being set at Select City Walk till August 2, 2015.
After L’Opera I always wondered why there is no other French bakery! I often thought we need some MORE to slurp in with maybe a finer version of French Bakery. (No doubt L’Opera is among the fine ones but too much of butter spoils the taste sometimes)
I finally got to know about this new Pop-Up at Select Citywalk Saket and guess what … Finally it’s all that I wanted ! “A new French bakery and Cafe” *Grinning*
With the bakery in its heart, The Artful Baker will soon pan out into a complete Café in the next few weeks, including a delicious range of breakfast & bakeries, salads and sandwiches, pizzas, mains & grills, picnic baskets, desserts, refreshing drinks and a selection of beers & wines.

THE ARTFUL BAKER’S SIGNATURE GOODNESS
Starting with Salty Caramel Macaroons , the taste is yummy carmelizing ! But wait … The macaroon is soft and chewy unlike the other macaroons available in the market. Others taste like biscuits ! *Phewww*
But with the Salty Macaroon , it just MELTS IN YOUR MOUTH
Sharing a tip here for we Indian Foodies , croissant is always served Cold and never reheated! Also to mention, you don’t need Fork and knife, just pop in with your hands 🙂 that’s the True way even French eat like…
Next on the Croissant list was the Ham and Cheese croissant with No extra butter ! It’s optimum !
A must try !
Coming to the Lemon Tart … it was perfect ! I am not a Tart Lover but this really did change my taste buds because of a great blend with the torch baking style! Mirang is the ingridient behind the goodness of the tart.
Monte Cristo is the yummiest dessert I had after this ! And to be mentioned this has the Yumness of Rum
Rum and the Crunchy taste at the base is a heart warming pace to the soul
Just Look at the texture …. whoopsie !
Taste of the French Peasent Bread was something different. To mention about this bread a little , it is among the secret vault recipes of France. 75 years old recipe this Bread is new to the Indian audiences and is worth every Bite …
