In Pune since January, Just

to the city by the Mars group of restaurants.
As you step into the spanking premises you are instantly
struck by the casual , yet classy ambience that

are sure to elicit a smile if not a uffaw.

at the last counter to pay for items picked.

dinner, you know now where to head if you wish to
have your eggs sunny side up. So what are you waiting
for? Doesn't this Sunday sound great!.
