The new Bloom all-day cafe in Bandra serves diabetic and PCOS-friendly millet foods
Bloom, a coffee shop open seven days a week from breakfast to dinner, recently opened in Bandra. The place is perfect for those who want to relax and eat healthy. Nestled in the bustling pockets of the suburbs, Bloom is a plant-based, vegan, and keto-friendly cafe that takes you on a culinary journey of delicious, natural flavors.
“There is a deeply personal touch behind the concept of creating a conscious vegan cafe like Bloom. I have been dealing with insulin resistance, thyroid and gluten intolerance for some time. Because of this, I started to adopt the habit of eating healthy foods and switched to a keto, gluten-free, and millet-based diet,” says Niketa Sharma, Founder of Bloom.
A quaint, brightly styled cafe, welcomes you with a soothing monochromatic theme recreating an authentic, upscale vibe. Featuring a crisp outdoor seating style with clean lines and muted peach and white hues and an exuberant pop of bold coffee, the cafe is filled with macrame eco heirlooms with a rattan coffee counter, lights vibrant, pure, durable, origami flowers and recyclable fine wood upholstery.
Besides the soothing architecture, Bloom promises an exquisite and wholesome gastronomic journey with Executive Chef Rahul Desai. The chef has concocted a scrumptious menu that is sure to leave you wanting more. Her top picks from the elaborate menu are Signature Zen Avocado Toast with Poached Cloud Egg (Keto Friendly), Signature Rainbow Pizza, and the Berry and Banana Smoothie.
The menu includes varied dishes based on millet, suitable for vegans as well as Keto and gluten-free, where even the desserts are refined without sugar. For starters, you can choose from a plant-based (vegan) cc, made with plant-based keema, tossed with a rich tomato sauce and served with whole-wheat Ladi pav and a side salad.
For sandwich lovers, the Basil Pesto Cottage Cheese Sandwich served with basil pesto, marinated cottage cheese, grilled vegetables, a slice of cheddar cheese and lettuce will fill you up. You can also treat yourself to a Keto-Friendly Falafel Wrap served with baked falafel, hummus, pickled vegetables, olives, sweet potato fries, garlic sauce, harissa sauce, lettuce, tomatoes and onions.
