The opening of Barista Lavazza was held at Dolmen Mall Clifton where the cafe is situated. The soft launch was attended by notable lifestyle and food bloggers, media personalities and supporting patrons.
I found the ambiance sophisticated and casual, the perfect mix for a business lunch or coffee.
We were served items from the menu and in my opinion, the Pesto Pizza and Bruschetta is really worth trying. Authentic Italian flavors and strong aromatic coffee made the food the highlight of the evening.
Barista, owned by Lavazza is Italy’s largest coffee company and is the world’s sixth largest coffee roaster. There are over 200 Barista Lavazza Espresso Bars and Barista Lavazza Crèmes in over 30 cities across India. Barista Cafes are also located in Srilanka, Oman and UAE.
