Bloom, a restaurant and cafe open 7 days a week, serving breakfast to dinner, recently opened its doors in Bandra. The place is perfect for those who want to relax and eat healthy. Tucked away in the bustling corners of suburbia, Bloom is a plant-based, vegan and ketogenic cafe that takes you on a culinary journey of delicious natural flavors.
“There is a deeply personal touch behind the concept of creating a plant-focused, mindful eating café like Bloom. I have been dealing with insulin resistance, thyroid, and gluten intolerance for a while now. Because of this, I started to get into the habit of eating healthy foods and switched to a ketogenic, gluten-free, millet-based diet,” says Niketa Sharma, founder of Bloom.
