It is hard to complain when a Patisserie-Cafe has spotless pastel coloured interiors with fine food and stellar desserts. Add soulful music from the gramophone era (the afternoon sunlight tilting through the bay windows) and you’re probably chilling at Lazy Suzy in Indiranagar.
Orchestrated to heighten the senses
Like the music, nothing is hurried here. Everything seems to be composed with a deep attention to detail (even the custom cutlery and wall art). The food is like a symphony, it starts off mellow and reaches a tasty crescendo after a few chews that lasts till the end. The coffee is sublime and in tune with the food on offer.
Untangling European cuisine
The menu at Lazy Suzy is kept simple, with a diverse yet sane number of items in every section (and something for seasoned Indian palettes too). If you’re still confused, ask Head Chef / Owner Uday Shenoy for suggestions, he’s always around and has a special ability to guess one’s taste. He often agrees to give a tour of his kitchen, but respect the kitchen or he’ll go Gordon Ramsay on your behind.
Oh the Salads…
Lazy Suzy’s Caesar Salad with Chicken Tikka is dressed with some divine vinaigrette and cheese. The vegetables feel like they have just been picked from a secret garden nearby. And yes it has the right amount of Chicken Tikka. Okay, relax! There are authentic French, Italian and Thai salads too.
Crunch without the jaw ache
The hand rolled pizzas are a dream come true with the perfect amount of moisture and crunch (felt even after packed in a bag for an hour). I am a committed non-vegetarian but I had quite an affair with the Mushroom Mascarpone Pizza (the mascarpone cheese should be requested on every pizza, if possible).
Without bread we are toast
Lazy suzy’s Artisanal Sandwiches are loaded with exotic ingredients in freshly baked breads. Choose any of the 7 breads on offer and listen for the crackling sound that only fresh bread can make.
Saving the best for last
A wise person said “Desserts are like songs – the good ones make you dance”. One bite of the gorgeous Belgian Chocolate Feuillant [foo-yaw] and I was swaying to an imaginary waltz. For the love of the flavour I tried the ‘Vanilla’ Bean Panna Cotta with strawberry (both flavours naturally extracted) and conclude that it is the best Vanilla preparation I have eaten.
They are expanding their seating by March ‘17 so you can visit in larger groups.
