Heard from elders that the then Great Eastern Bakery used to be the best in the city and was a jewel in the crown . When we recently visited The Lalit Great Eastern Bakery – we were pleasantly surprised and happy as well .

We had wonderful memories of Waffles when we visited Athens . Since then we always complained the lack of dedicated store of Waffles in Kolkata .
