AB’s – Absolute Barbecues

Specially for the hardcore non- vegetarians out there, try this  barbecue place instead of all those old chains. Their live counter serves bunny, octopus, squid and god knows what all variety of foods. Not to forget they have the best dessert section I have been to till date.

Hyderabad House

Visiting all these sites will take almost an entire day and by the end of it, you would have covered nearly all joints for breakfast, lunch and dinner. In case you still have time try these ones below as well.

German Bakery

A popular hangout spot for the foreigners in Pune. Visit this early morning for a breakfast or a brunch and do try the red velvet cake.
