This well-known brand began in 1969 when VP Thomas came to the city with his brother from Kerala and started a family run bakery business. The bakery believes in community building and bonds over plum cake mixing gatherings that the family holds annually to offer freshly baked plum cakes during Christmas. Their matured plum cake enriched with apricots, walnuts, figs and raisins, and the local favourites chicken pie and chicken pinwheel should be on your list.
