A New food and fashion Corner


For the love of coffee and style, step into this café with sweet treats and couture


Named after its founders, sisters Sanober and Ruhi Tumbi, Tumbi Patisserie and Coffee is a tranquil nook
for lovers of coffee, confectionary and clothes. Yes, you read it right, Tumbi houses a clothing boutique
of its own in the cafe. The sisters established the space in December of ‘23, with Sanober taking care of
the patisserie and Ruhi the boutique which carries her eponymous label’s stunning hand-woven designs.
As we enter, we are greeted by jovial staff members who show us to our seat overlooking Ruhi’s
boutique. On display are a wide range of handwoven pieces, including jamdani cotton suits, lehengas,
sarees and more. Besides this Ruhi, taking inspiration from Manish Malhotra whom she has previously
worked with and learnt from, has also created a shimmering line-up of cocktail sarees.
The coffee menu offers an array of flavorful coffee options, all made from two types of coffee beans –
Indian (dark roast) and international (medium roast). From the menu we ask for the Iced Coffee Matcha
Latte and the Iced Mango Americano. With the help of what happens to be India’s first gold Modbar that
provides a 4D experience, the coffee is prepared live in front of us. The subtle Iced Coffee Matcha Latte
is a sweet, Moorish, umami flavored iced coffee with pure Japanese Matcha topped with foam.
Comparatively the Iced Mango Americano is stronger and is made by pouring mango juice over ice
followed by shots of espresso extracted from freshly ground in-house coffee beans. Perfect for the
From the desserts, we start with their creamy School Pineapple Cake slice, which is filled with chunky
pineapple pieces that takes us down a nostalgia trip. Next is their Home-style Chocolate Cake slice,
made of chocolate sponge layered between dark chocolate ganache and rich in taste. We then try the
soft and smooth Strawberry Cheesecake; it is just as delicious as everything that came before. However,
the crowd favorite and ultra-creamy Tres Leches, is one dessert that cannot be missed here. It features
three types of milk soaked in airy-lite sponge that is topped with sweet French whipped cream.
Besides the coffee and old-school desserts, Tumbi also takes orders for customized cakes, brownies and
cookies which are delivered pan India. Additionally, if you plan to take a trip down to Tumbi soon, be
sure to grab a bite of one of their mouth-watering sandwiches. The lineup includes the Chicken Cold
Sandwich, the Egg and Mayo Sandwich, Tiffin Box Cheese Sandwich and the Cold Vegetable Sandwich.
