This iconic bakery has more fans then we could probably count. If you haven’t had their Shrewsbury biscuits, and Mawa cake you’re missing out on something great in life. In fact, a trip to Pune just for those yummy cookie biscuits is also absolutely worth it.

2. Whipped, New Delhi

Whipped in Defence Colony is famous for its cupcakes, and quite rightly so. They taste just as amazing as they look. We would say pick up a jar-cake or as its called, ‘jake’ to satiate your sweet pangs today.

Ellora’s Melting Moments are a crowd favourite, especially their stick jaws — caramelised bars that are sinfully amazing. But their packaged cookies that come in different flavours are quite the superstars too!

While we’re talking about all things sweet, Albert’s in Bangalore knows what it’s best for — croissants, and bread. But that’s not it, their Mutton kheema samosas, and salty biscuits are also to die for. Wait, wasn’t this a cookie post? Well, can’t neglect a great bakery that serves about everything that heaven might be made of, right!?
