    Whitefield is becoming an eclectic A�culinary destination offering A�French, Italian, pan-Asian and now, A�German cafe-style dining options. A�Cafe of Joy, named after the owner A�Joy Basu, is the latest on the scene A�and is as charming as the owner. A A�few outdoor tables behind a white A�picket-fence leads upto a lovely lav- ender door.

    Inside, the white furnish- ings with touches of lavender are A�fresh and welcoming. Along with the A�baskets filled with assorted breads A�that were the next things to catch my A�eye. Each day, sees a freshly baked A�supply of different breads. The spe- cials of the day change, ranging from A�hot meals to light quiches and sand- wiches. A�Great start As we sat down, a basket of the fresh- ly made bread of the day was served.

    We sampled a fitness roll made of A�whole wheat, shredded carrots, flax, A�sesame and watermelon seeds, a A�whole wheat roll with oats, a country A�millet roll, a sundried tomato focac- cia bread, a German style hard crust A�sour dough roll and my favourite, an A�Italian ciabatta, warm from the A�oven. I chose the German schnechen A�sausage with Bavarian potato salad. A�Schnechen in German means snail A�and the sausage, rolled up like a A�snail, was robust and full of flavour. A�The creamy texture of the potato A�salad complimented it nicely.

    One of A�my companions had the chicken A�meatloaf with Bavarian potato sal- ad. The meatloaf was smooth tex- tured, like pate, and very delicious. A�For my other friend, Basu recom- mended the flammkuchen, a thin A�crust German style pizza with a A�fresh cream cheese topping with A�ham and onions. It was light and the A�cream cheese gave it a new dimen- sion from the usual tomato sauce A�pizzas. We also sampled some deli- cious mini quiches. Sweet symphony The dessert selection is small and A�changes daily, just like everything A�else, to take advantage of the fresh- est seasonal offerings, explained A�Basu.

    We had the classic sacher tort, A�a Viennese rich chocolate ganache A�and marzipan cake with a layer of A�apricot jam. It was divine. Moist and A�sweet with the apricot jam lending a A�delightful tartness to the cake. The A�German style lemon cheesecake A�made from quark gave it a lightness A�that the original cheesecake does not A�usually have. The blueberry muffin A�with an oatmeal crumble had a dis- tinctly nice texture and taste. For A�Diwali, Basu will be making special- ity cupcakes.

    Breads can be ordered A�a day in advance and delivered. Rs 800++ for two. At Varthur Road, A�Whitefield. Details: 9886329015
