Knocksense: A local content and recommendations platform

Though sweets and desserts are ordinarily supposed to be had after a meal, there are some who would rather have sweets for the starters, main course, and naturally, the dessert. If you're of that stock, then this amazing little bakery and cafe combo in Kanpur is where you have to be. Sweet Affairs in Swaroop Nagar is the best spot for all your cool dessert cravings this summer.

In terms of the ambience, the place is warm and inviting and the decor here gives it a vibe that is unmatched by any other place in the city. The place is decorated with classy subtlety and has a home like feel, which is why it is perhaps the most comfortable and alluring joint in Kanpur.

Though you’ll be going to this place for the sweets, they also have a plethora of other options to choose from. They are well known for their oriental and continental cuisine and have gained a fan following in the city. In fact, you can even have a full four course meal here with soups, starters and what not.

The best things to try here are their momos, which are soft and juicy, the chicken lollipops and the noodles. Each of the dishes are prepared with utmost precision and that is why they all have distinct features that will have you coming back for more.

Apart from the chinese, you can also opt for the pizzas and pastas which are doused in succulent sauces that have a subtle flavour and do not feel too overbearing on the taste buds. The place is indeed the perfect place for the gourmand as well as the gourmet. Pair the amazing food with the charming ambience, and you’ve got a great outing ahead of you.

Now, let's talk about the sweets- which there are so many of that you can substitute them for any course of the meal. Here, there are waffles and pancakes that have become favourites of fans. This could possibly be because of the heavenly, fluffy texture that they possess.

The Cafe serves them with some sweet syrups that lend it an extra layer of taste. Another fan favourite here are the pastries and cakes, which are as sweet as can be and as soft as you’d imagine. To wash down the flavours and complement all the sugar, visitors often take in a few shakes and cold coffees, which are thick and offer a massive relief from the summer heat.

Since the place is rather cheap in its pricing, it is a go to spot for college students and young adults, making it one of the most happening places in town.
