Rustom’s Cafe and Bakery at Khoj!

Welcome to Rustom’s Café & Bakery, a cozy dining space situated in the Khoj International Artists Association in Khirkee Extension, New Delhi. Think Irani café meets English tea room meets your favourite neighborhood bakery and you have this charming space filled with vintage memorabilia and nostalgia-invoking treats. The café features both an indoor and al-fresco seating, with the décor inspired by memorabilia found in old Parsi homes. The café’s wall installation and adorned shelves are our quirky tribute to the community’s obsession with everything colonial and British.Sit back, soak in the retro tunes while digging into many of our Bombay/ Parsi Café offerings.

The cyclical menu at the café will have an emphasis on showcasing and reinventing traditional treats found at local Bombay bakeries along with a smattering of street eats and club food. Craving a Chilli Cheese Toast, Buff Cutlet Pao or Bombay Grill Sandwich that hits all the right spots and packs a spicy punch? We’ve got you covered. For our child-at-heart guests we’ve got some Chicken Mayo Rolls and a chilli-laced Currimbhoy Egg Salad Sandwich that will leave you longing for your childhood.

Of course Rustom’s Café& Bakery wouldn’t be complete without the goodness of some home-style, authentic Parsi bhonu like Kheema Pao,Spicy Fish Curry Rice, Chicken Vindaloo and Prawn Pulao. Our Parsi love for eggs has not been forgotten either. With indulgent Akoori on Fried Toast, Coriander and Garlic Scrambled Eggs, Parsi Omelette, you’ve got an all-day-breakfast fit for an Irani wrestler. The bakery section will be serving a selection of baked goodies – our most loved Mawa Cake, Shrewsbury biscuits sourced from Kyani’s Bakery in Pune, Cheesy Mushroom/ Kheema Puffs and loaf cakes.

Our beverage menu collaborations for the search of the best and most innovative products on our menu has resulted in associations with Blue Tokai Coffee Roasters, Anandini Himalaya Tea and Swiss Gourmessa for bread. So do drop by for a hearty lunch or just for a cup of Parsi chai and a side of MaskaPao.
