For sweets, savouries and cakes…

Annai Bhavan on LB Road specialising in sweets, savouries, cakes and pastries is a haven for sweet-toothers. Annai Bhavan which was opened in the neighbourhood last Sunday is a famous name in North Chennai since 1992.

The spacious outlet has a wide assortment of sweets – Bengali sweets, ghee sweets, milk sweets, halwas and a special collection of sweets made from cashew nut and other dry fruits and nuts. Their savoury range includes special cashew pakoda and potato sweet mixture apart from the regular savouries and chips.

The fresh-cream cakes are available in slices from Rs. 60 onwards. They also have mousse-cakes in flavours – pine apple, strawberry, choco truffle, butter scotch and the likes. Baked delights like cookies, wine cake, banana bread and muffins are also available. Annai Bhavan promises to deliver simple birthday cakes within 15 minutes. Customers can also customise their cakes at the outlet as their baking unit is within the outlet itself.

The shop is roomy and has seating capacity up to 25 people spread across its ground floor and first floor. They have a separate counter for Chaat items and fresh juice. Pastries like puffs and rolls are also available. “We have brought in two Chaat specialists from Bihar to give our customers authentic North Indian flavours. They have come up with about 44 different chaat combinations and 8 different Pav combos. Our special Falooda can be had for Rs.110, and I can assure that the customer won’t be disappointed. We also have a separate kitchen upstairs for Pizza and Burgers.
Our motto is to offer delicacies to customers at an affordable price. Our 8-inch cheese pizza costs just Rs.70,” says D.M. Prabhakaran, manager of Annai Bhavan. Special offers and discounts can be availed at weekends.
