The Eater's Digest - 4

This was one of the 'happening' places in Chennai, in those days when Coke and Pepsi could be seen only in Hollywood movies and pizza was what Cakes & Bakes gave us. Good to see they are still going strong!

I spent my formative years honing my consulting skills in the management consultancy division of A.F.Ferguson (now part of Deloitte, India) in the first floor above Cakes N Bakes. To many of our clients we would mention that we were above Cakes N Bakes. It did give us the chance to get at some of the best pastries and pizzas in town in those years. The best Saturday combo was to have a pint of beer at Ganpat Hotel (diagnolly opposite Cakes N Bakes) and then march back for the pizza. In my last years there, I did get to know one thing - the guy who took the order for a take away was mentioning the location to his customer ' you know A F Ferguson - we are just below'. Cakes N Bakes & AFF are an integral part of my history.

@ Ram's blog: I remember coming in to AFF sometime in the early 90s - and then stopping at C&B before heading back to work. Those were the days!
