Concu is one of those rare places which defines itself by it’s work and warmth. The moment you walk in, you are wowed by the French Quarter styled minimalistic design of the café. It’s modern and it’s elegant but more important than that, it has that typical warm and cozy interior that is unique and original. It’s bright and it looks like the cozy corner of an inviting home. The pattern and color of the accent wall adds perspective and the simplicity of the rest only makes it more lovable. That’s exactly what we look for in a café, the ability to lay back to sip on some teas and indulge in sweet tooth cravings.
As you walk in the elegantly designed glass door displaying a beautifully new logo of the new vibrant Concu, a perfect indulgence awaits. A quick look through the glass display and the desserts look handcrafted by someone who knows his perfection when it comes to creating his confectioneries. We have loved the cozy feel of the earlier place that had housed Concu, but with the new one they have upped themselves. Introduction of new desserts to fill up on the dessert choices and also the addition of teas, smoothies and iced teas.
The Macaroons at Concu have been the best in the city. From the hard choices we had to make that day to order off the dessert display (we wanted to pick all of them), picked quite a nifty few of them, even though not going overboard.
The Russian Medovick is always a favorite and must try when visiting Concu. Layers of puff pastries with caramel. It is a dessert that is delicate, delicious, fragrant and plays on the tones of the sweetness that even a person who doesn’t like dessert wouldn’t refuse.
We miss the Paris Brest which was in the earlier menu of Concu. Considering they have a changing menu, will wait when that will be back on. The Marquise, part of the new dessert collection which have been included doesn’t hold back on the chocolate. What we loved best was the coffee flavor to it, which makes it a symbiosis on two of the best things in life – Coffee and Chocolate. It’s beautifully shaped like an ice-cream bar. Before biting in, take a little time off to notice the intricate designs which shape it.
The smoothies are freshly made and the iced-teas of high quality Assam Tea. We had a Peach Melba Iced Tea which was extremely refreshing. In a unique social resplendent experiment, the bottles they are served in shall catch you by surprise.
But if you are a tea person, order from on their finer tea collection. Had the Bulgarian Rose Tea which is subtle and were especially enticed by the aroma of it. It the perfect concoction for when you want to take that corner table in a café, sit back and read a book or get to work while you sip on some of the finest flavors.
When not writing high praises about this place and with too much of a dessert craving, you shall find me in my corner table at Concu quietly reading a book. There is no denying to how much I have fallen in love with this café and the simplistic beauty it holds. The only thing missing now is the view of Eiffel Tower as I look out the window.
