We share an awesome list of the finest desserts in Pune, some of which are totally unique and you would not find them anywhere else in the city except at these places.
Indigo Delicatessen, Koregaon Park, Pune
They make their own ice creams and they are probably the best in the city, considering that they are a standalone fine-dine restaurant.
Try the Bailey’s or the Nilgiri Vanilla Bean Icecream, they can even make Sundaes out of your chosen ice cream and top it up with waffle crisps, caramel sauce and a whole bunch of other condiments.
The other desserts include Salty Caramel and Banana Cheesecake and Sambuca Flambéed Crème Brulee. For every day, they have "dessert of the day" which keeps changing.
Pune Baking Company, JW Marriott Hotel Pune
French pastry, cheesecakes, tiramisu and some other good options are truly indulgent.
The Dark Chocolate Mousse Cake with Blood Orange Jelly and Almond Biscuit, is something unique and nicely done. This smooth mousse is really decadent and the bitter chocolate with orange has a nice play of flavours. If you like something fruity and refreshing, try the Mojito Mousse Cake that is a mix of lemon mousse, mint gel and a hazelnut cake base.
These guys started selling hot donuts and coffee. Some of their donuts are the best sellers even today. The Espresso Donut is a really nice one, crème filled donut that has a strong espresso icing finished with some chocolate sauce. They even have a White Chocolate and Coconut Donut that is filled with fruity jam inside. T
he other good and seasonal ones include Mango and Strawberry made with fresh fruit and their jams. The dessert counter also has small cakes which include Red Velvet, a classic baked cheesecake amongst others.
