A couple of years ago, BBB as usual got us all talking about her divine treats from her cakes to cupcakes and everything in between. The crowd went crazy when their first official store opened at Liberty Arcade, and now to the biggest venture of BBB - The stunning brand new Chic Cafe down Alfred House Avenue!

You can finally head over to BBB to lounge in the comfortable seating, inhale the incredible atmosphere (I'm talking about the fresh smell of baking & aromatic coffee) to the numerous things you can do there!

Food & Drink

Nutella Fudge Cupcake | Rs.250

The cupcakes were average-sized and fitted the palm of our hands. It looked mouth-watering and extremely chocolatey! The best part was that the cupcakes were super moist and flavoursome. Although we didn't exactly get the "fudge", we still adored these cuties.

Vanilla Cupcake | Rs.180

Now, although we enjoyed the vanilla frosting and the tumblr-looking sprinkles, we found the cake to be a little on the dry side. However, when combined with the perfectly sweet frosting, they went hand in hand.

Red Velvet Shake | Rs.750

Who would have thought to blend red velvet into a shake and expect it to not just look good but taste fabulous too!? None other than Bella of course! A tall glass which will fill you up entirely with its thick shake and red velvet pieces topped with delicious whipped cream (we'd prefer to have it more chilled).

Caramel Coffee | Rs.500

Let's all take a minutes' silence for Bella to bring AMAZING hot beverages to BBB! Coffee with the right aroma, flavour and a signature coffee design - The drink had a stunning look and tasted sweet (because of the caramel) to the right amount of bitterness and strongness off the coffee.

Brownie & Cream Jar | Rs.450

These concoctions are a blessing that hit town. These customised jars are just so good that you'd be in a world of BBB (perhaps that's the resemblance to Alice in Wonderland) with layers of Nutella, brownies to cream and fresh slices of strawberries.

Rainbow Slice  | Rs.450

First of all, take a picture and post it on tumblr for the sole reason that it'll brighten up your feed and life! The colours were bright with a soft cake to a thick yet delicious cake frosting. Please go try it. You won't regret it.

Cinnamon Roll | Rs.350

Ever tried Cinnabon? Wanted to give it a shot? Although BBB's cinnamon roll doesn't resemble the original flavour, it's got its own unique twist of taste. The sweet cinnamon glaze would just blow your mind.


As you can lock your eyes to the pictures we've captured and the vlog we uploaded, there's nothing short of presentation of her goodies. The ceramic plates to modern coffee cups to the tall glasses and contemporary looks.


The waiters are efficient and sharp and are extremely eager to please you!

Interior and ambience

Like I said, the ambience makes you fall in love with the place and the simple lounge seating and interior which is inspired from many makes it a place you'd wish to visit ever so often!


In conclusion we loved BBB, everything about it felt absolutely right. Surely we hope they have a range of delicious iced teas too or anything cold apart from the caffeine fix. The prices can be argued to said a little on the pricey side but you'd soon realise that it was pretty much worth it since the food honestly compensate! I don't know about you, but if you're wise you'd definitely pop by!
