Pot Pourri Sunday Breakfast Buffet | Brunch It Up In Healthy Way | Food Review | Restaurant Review | Food Photography

Sunday mornings are supposed to be spent sleeping..unless one is awakened by the thought of some delicious breakfast buffet, which is exactly what happened to us this sunday as we visited Pot Pourri. From 8 to 11 AM on sundays, it's raining breakfast items here, hallelujah :D








First impression- funky, young, happy vibe. Spacious, the kind we don't see much in Mumbai. Nice separate sections for huge groups, comfy couches, high chairs, families and so on. LIVE matches are screened and theme nights (such as ladies' special) are regularly held. Bustling kitchen, very courteous and prompt staff, menu choc-a-bloc with salads, pizzas, pastas and the like. We were here for sunday breakfast buffet that has a rotating menu with Indian, continental, south Indian delicacies along with fruit juices, bread, pastries, tea, coffee, waffles, pancakes live counter etc. Very value for money considering the huge spread that is bound to have something for everyone.





An overview of what we tried-

JUICES- My FAVORITE hands down. Combinations available were - Strawberry+ Guava, Watermelon+ Mint, Pineapple+ Spinach, Cold Coffee. Distinct flavors, refreshing, strong, healthy, full of nutrients and what a kick start to the day!

Alongside juices were different flavors of INFUSED WATER, good for detox, which I guess we need on sunday mornings after late night partying on friday and saturday :D

Then there was a separate counter for varieties of TEA, HOT COFFEE, HOT CHOCOLATE. I tried hot chocolate and it was really good.

CEREAL section had the popular choco-flakes along with option of hot or cold milk, for those like my sister who like no fuss breakfast.

INDIAN items included-
MINI IDLI, Sambhar and Coconut Chutney, all of them perfectly wholesome,

SABUDANA KHICHDI, absolutely FANTASTIC,

KOTHIMBIR WADI, personally I am not a big fan but taste-wise no complaints, authentic, if you like this dish, you will like it here too.





CONTINENTAL items included-
SAVOURY MILLET & BARLEY PORRIDGE - Again, not a big fan of millet, found this a bit too dry, but maybe those who like this kind of porridge would like it. Very healthy and down to earth option for sure.

HASH BROWNS, BAKED BEANS, GRILLED TOMATO - Nothing much to add here, same as anywhere else, simple and I guess satisfying for those who like these. I personally am not big on these dishes.

PIZZA - Simple mix of cheese and minimal veggies as toppings, tasted good, crunchy, not heavy on stomach at all, loved how fresh it was, they kept making it and it kept getting over :D

BREADS section had brown bread, white bread and the accompanying condiments were mind blowing. HERB BUTTER, CHILLI BUTTER, GUAVA JAM, PAPAYA JAM, literally each one of these was extraordinarily good.

VEG MAYO SANDWICH- My second FAVORITE after the juices section, it was a simple creamy cheesy sandwich but I think I must have gulped down 6 or 7 of these. Simple, superb.







FRESH FRUITS- Watermelons, Papaya, Pineapple, Muskmelon, take your pick. We tried all, they felt fresh.

DOUGHNUTS, BANANA LOAF, CROISSANT, MINI MUFFINS rounded up the sweet part of our breakfast. Out of these, croissants were a disappointment. They are supposed to be buttery and soft but were really hard. Same thing with brown bread, the sides were too hard. 

WAFFLES Live counter, we tried CHOCOLATE and STRAWBERRY, fragrant and fresh, really good.

Apart from these, the non vegetarians also had bacon, live eggs counter and non veg pizzas. The chef was also happy to make something special on request so that's good :)

We really liked the spread and except for occasional thumbs down (hard croissants, dry porridge) everything else was really good. Loads of healthy options, flavors were strong, excellent service and cool ambiance, we shall certainly be back soon.
