I am so glad I found this place - Clearly one of the best things to have happened to Kolkata's bakery scene. I came across Le Vanilla as I desperately looked for options to send a birthday cake to my grandson in Kolkata for his special 10th birthday (we stay in Delhi). Le Vanilla has so many options to choose from and great reviews. After scanning the whole menu, we chose the Melon D'Lite, which frankly is a novelty you won't even come across in Gurgaon...The cake was fantastic - delightful to see, and delightful to taste. And sufficient for a kid's party!! In the words of my grandson, "this is the best birthday gift I have ever received."
The online ordering process was smooth and they use Pay U Money which gives buyers protection from fraud.
After some confusion around delivery time (turns out residential deliveries are made only after 5 pm, which was not clarified to me earlier), the team took extra effort to get the cake to my cousin's house. And when they couldn't locate the house, they first called me to take permission to call my cousin in case the cake was meant as a surprise. How thoughtful....My cousin and my nephew were really happy with it all, including the two slices of real watermelon on top of the cake.
I look forward to tasting the cakes myself when I visit Kolkata, and will definitely be ordering cakes from here in future for all my friends and family in Kolkata.
