Who stole the cookie from the cookie jar? Well, if it was one from Kookie Jar, then the suspects could be many, for this shop, which opened back in 1985 had awestruck school children lining up outside their Rawdon Street outlet to watch sandwiches with exotic
fillings being put together right in front of their eyes. To their credit, Academy Award winning filmmaker Satyajit Ray himself wrote a letter of appreciation for an outstanding birthday cake they crafted for him. Even after so many years in business, owner Lovey Kapur promises “a taste that will take you back to Paris, like no one else in the city can". With three outlets and one restaurant to their merit, they haven’t been as aggressive as some of the new brands that have popped up in the city since. However, they have retained their faith in one fact—those who prefer quality will always turn to Kookie Jar. The must tries here are the lemon tart and chocolate boat.
