Biting into a sinful chocolate eclair topped with strands of orange peel while the protagonist in the book proceeds to solve the mystery and then picking up that cup of piping hot Ethiopian coffee has to be the best way to spend a lazy evening. Sounds dreamy, right? Well, not really. Courtyard by Marriott has launched their Eclair & Coffee fest which offers you exactly what was described above. 

“Nine out of ten people like chocolate. The tenth person always lies…” ha ha ha…How true that statement is!!

A platter with not one or two but five different kinds of eclairs and a coffee of your choice [from the 5 varieties], all for a price of Rs 399 [excl taxes] is here to keep you buzzing during the afternoons. It could be a casual meeting with your girl pals or killing some time between meetings, or maybe just a rendezvous with a date, it is perfect for any occasion. 

Walk into Paprika, the coffee shop near the entrance, grab yourself a chair in one of the tables, order the Eclair & coffee platter, sit back and watch time fly by. 

These little treats are just perfect, each one filled with unique flavours, they are not too sweet and go well with any of the coffees.


 You get to dig into these 5 delicious eclairs– 

  1. The Classic Chocolate eclair
  2. Mixed berry eclair topped with fresh slices of strawberries
  3. Dark chocolate and orange eclair
  4. White chocolate and almond eclair
  5. Caramel and Coffee eclair that oozes with Mocha flavour. 

And for the coffee, you get to pick from 

  1. Kumbakonam coffee
  2. Colombian Supremo – This coffee has a nutty taste and is quite good without milk.
  3. Ethiopian Sidamo- This coffee has a roasted coffee flavour and is a tad bitter 
  4. Rakgiri pearl
  5. Coorg Blend

So, next time you are planning a coffee meet, you know where to head! The eclairs are big enough for a few bites and small enough to keep you going… 🙂
