A wonderful bakery and a story

The father used to travel a lot, so it was just the mother and two daughters at home. They would skip dinner and bake some desserts instead. Years later, chocolate chip brownies; bread and butter pudding; pain aux raisins and many more choice dinners found way to this small bakery in Colaba.

The story is no longer on their swanky new menus but Theobroma (the name of the cocoa tree and literally, the food of the Gods) still has enough baked goodies to keep a dessert junkie happy. It's small; with just 4 tables and can get really crowded. But you don't really go to Theobroma to linger. You either go for quick, decent sandwiches and passable coffee. Or for their cakes, mousses and macaroons. Or, like me, you go in and buy their brownies and cinnamon rolls. And you go home and have desserts for dinner - just like the old times!

Was in Colaba for a long long time but never knew about this one! Where is it?

Its on the Causeway. If you are going from Taj/Gateway to Colaba Market, it is on your right. Maybe a five minute walk from Cafe Mondegar.

Oh man - they have THE BEST brownies ever. I have a friend in Bombay who regularly replenishes my supply! Sigh. Love them!
