The Sassy Teaspoon: the new Mumbai patisserie that takes the biscuit
In a vibrant urban metropolis like Mumbai, where the streets are flooded with activity, noise and food, it can often seem impossible to find respite. Luckily, for those seeking sanctuary from the hustle and bustle, there comes a newly launched patisserie in the suburbs called Sassy Teaspoon.
Located in the Juhu district, the quaint new patisserie is a culinary haven away from the chaotic centre of India’s most populous city. Opened by local restaurateurs Rachel Goenka and Irfan Pabaney, the patisserie is a dessert-focused extension of the duo’s main restaurant The Sassy Spoon, which they hope will ‘be known for its unique flavour, upscale service and sophisticated design’.
Designed by Rooshad Shroff Architecture + Design, the new shop has been kept simple and vibrant with a colour palatte of pink and white chosen to decorate the interior. With the inclusion of custom-designed concrete terrazzo tiles, architect Shroff aimed to create a style that blended ‘the urbane nature of a French patisserie with the whimsical nature of The Sassy Spoon brand’. The result is an eye-catching kerbside aesthetic.
Sassy Teaspoon has an array of tasty treats on offer, including cupcakes, brownies, profiteroles, macarons, homemade ice cream and more. Dished up in bright colours, the desserts are not only delicious but also reflect the vivacity and colourful nature of the patisserie’s décor.
With the launch of such a charming new eaterie, it is clear owners Goenka and Pabaney are having their cake and eating it too.
