Being a foodie my better half did research a lot to know the best places to eat in Pune and finally one fine Friday evening we started our journey to Pune. During our stay we visited various restaurant ,tea and milkshake joints. Listing here the details of the palaces that we liked most.

1. German bakery:

This cute little palace is famous for it's breakfast menu. We didn't regret walking almost a kilometre to reach there. They have a nice covered sitting area outside. We tried mushroom spinach omelette and assorted fruits with yoghurt. The omelette was freshly prepared and served hot and the yoghurt was thick and delicious. Also we packed some honey lemon tart while leaving to enjoy it later.

Speciality: Breakfast, Cakes

Price for 2: 600

2. Amrutatulya tea centre:

This place is always crowded as this serve probably the best tea in Pune (however I did not try anywhere else.. sshhh.. ). I can call this place as tea lovers paradise. The kadak, flavourful cup of tea will give you energy immediately. Only drawback I see is that the sweetness of it is little more which many of us might not like.

Speciality: Tea

Price for 2: 20-30

3. Sujata Mastani:

If you are not a big fan of tea, Sujatha Mastani is right there on the opposite side of the road. They have plenty of milk shakes to offer. Most recommended among all is mango Mastani. The thick mango shake is surely divine on a hot summer afternoon. You can try other shakes from their menu too.

Speciality: Mango Mastani

Price for 2: 150

4. Bedekar tea stall:

Another famous breakfast joint that we found is known for its hot misal pav. Note that this is open only for breakfast. This peppery hot tangy gravy with bread is mouth watering and I can easily declare this as a perfect example of spicy Indian food. In fact this was so refreshing that even now while describing I am getting little water in my mouth!! This place is a must visit if you are a fan of spicy food. Not to worry as they also have milk shakes in menu to cool you down.

Speciality: Misal pav

Price for 2: 200

5. Shabree restaurant:

This place is famous for its Marathi thali. I would like to say that it is little costly compared to all my recommendations here. However I guarantee that you will not regret trying it once. They will serve you a full course Marathi meals with all possible options and I bet you will be tiered finishing all of that. I am not sure if they have any ala carte option as we did not try looking for it.

Speciality: Marathi meals

Price for 2: 1000

6. Local food at Sinhagad Fort:

Sinhagad fort is a popular weekend destination for many locals. You can take the walking trail and hike to reach the fort. There are people from near by villages who actually cook local food on top of Sinhagad fort. After few hours of hike we sat at one of these food joints and ate bhakri and sabji with curd prepared in clay pot. We loved the homely taste of their preparation and the cordial atmosphere. Exactly the kind of relaxation you want after a hike.

Speciality: Clay pot curd

Price for 2: 250
