Baba Au Rhum ( a French Pastry) is a French cafe, bakery & pizzeria situated on a quiet road connecting two of the most swarmed beaches of Goa, Baga and Anjuna. This sweet spot has been serving visitors from around the world since the time it was the only cafe in this part of North Goa.
Set up 10 years ago, by Dayini and Leo, this place is famous for fresh, organic and homemade ingredients. The casual yet chic ambience of the place rejuvenates you with the first step you set in. The wooden tables and benches with throw pillows immediately take you to your comfort zone. The cool breeze from the surrounding bamboo forests and lovely music (thanks to Leo’s DJ skills) alleviates your stress.
This place is heaven for salad lovers: Ginger Chicken salad and the Seafood salad are few of the favourites. For connoisseurs of Italian food, choose from the long list of wood-fired oven pizzas or simply pick your own toppings and create your own pizza. Another hit is the wide range of burgers, baguette and croissants. A wide smile crosses Leo's face when someone orders a wholesome Leo’s special. Zucchini cigars and Roast beef cigars can serve as good ‘conversation’ starters.
Choose from a wide range of freshly made cocktails and mocktails, many of the variants are made from fresh handpicked fruits. Pitchers here are affordable and a hot favourite amongst the tourists. Order a soda pop to beat the Goan heat or try one of the organically curated cocktails like Mai Tai, Flower Power, Holy Cow or Night Prowler.
Baba Au Rhum is essentially a bakery at heart so your sweet tooth cravings are sure to be satisfied. Don't forget to order a Strawberry cup or a Paris Brest or a gluten-free rich chocolate cake.
It is a perfect halt destination if you are travelling from Baga or Anjuna to any other part of Goa. At Baba Au Rhum time flies by and it's time well spent. Thin crust pizzas here are perhaps the best in Goa, try it and be amazed.
