I have been in Pune now for a little over a year and have had the opportunity to explore quite a bit of the food scene at least.In my side of town. Apart from these, there are the cafes that I’ve been to thanks to the book club.Which are worthy of a mention. I’m putting together a list of cafes, coffee shops, Restaurants – both fine dining and small hole in the wall ones. Shall keep updating the list as I go along.

Do share your recommendation so I can add them to the list as well.
