Avista Cafe Pizzeria is one place near to my home and that’ll make visiting again easy as I’d love to visit again and again. It’s food, value for money, board games and a homely environment make this place a gem. This place is located near the Hennur-Bangalore flyover.
It has a look of a house that was converted into the cafe. There are 3 sets of seatings available, one is at the entrance for a casual kind of setting or a quick coffee. The second one is for a larger group of people for which they have a group table. Thirdly, if you like to smoke there is a smoking area.
They have some catchy posters on the wall which makes the place more fun and lovable. They also have books to read and games to play, so you can actually visit the place and feel like home.
Service is good. The staff is courteous and helpful. At the price they serve, it’s a steal. Just walk in and enjoy the experience. I bet you would come back for more.
I visited this place with a small group of friends for a Sunday brunch.
For starters, we took Salsa Nachos. Nachos covered with veggies, salsa and cheese make this irresistible. The taste was good like you expect a good nacho serve to be.
Honey Chilli Potato was the traditional fries sautéed with honey and chili flakes. The taste was distinct with a bit of sweet and spice well blended together. I loved it.
Next in the list was Mushroom Cap. It was a Showstopper dish for me. Stuffed mushroom with Spinach and special sauce. I would recommend this dish as a must try.
Mocktails were average and need improvement in the whole genre.
Mango Mania was okay but way too sweet. The sweetness should be reduced to make it taste better.
Lichi Cooler could have had a nice flavor of lichi except that it was shrouded by the sweetness. It definitely needs improvement
The blueberry smoothie was comparatively better than other two.
Virgin (Mojito) was good and refreshing and I practically loved it. It was just amazing, refreshing and in this hot summer, it’s recommended.
For the main course, the pizza was a must (pizzeria…duh).
Primavera Pizza was a thin crust pizza topped with veggies and cheese. It was good and I loved it.
Avista Veggie Burger was served with fries and sauce (like the famous garden burger combo). It was pretty good.
Fettuccini Pasta with arrabbiata sauce was the best part of this place. The pasta is prepared in the house and the sauce was amazing. I loved it.
For desserts, we decided to split some awesome sounding ones. So we started with Nutella and Nuts pancake, was good and you must try it.
Maple syrup and pecan tart was good too.
The chocolate walnut tart was awesome and I loved it
I had an amazing brunch, and a time well spent. I would love to visit again and try some more dishes. Meanwhile, if you guys decide to give the place a visit, do let us know in the comments about your experience.
