The L’Opera Salon de Thé is located in Epicruia Food Court at Nehru Place, New Delhi and it’s an idle place to indulge yourself with high-quality bakery & pastry products. For your information, The L’Opera Salon de Thé means “The One Tea Room” and the aim of L’Opera Salon de Thé is to create desserts that remain unforgettable & magnificent memory for you.
I met Mr. Kazem Samandari, the man behind the chain of French Bakeries and Mr. Masood at L’Opera Salon de Thé, both of them shared the story since its inception and what’s coming by 2020. Just to let you know, L’Opera is a family business that was started in the French Embassy first and now they have 13 outlets all around Delhi NCR, with over 130 employees. The first outlet opened in March 2011 in Khan Market, New Delhi and since its inception, the L’Opera is all about quality & excellence. During the meet, Mr. Kazem Samandari mentions that there is only one production facility in Noida and they source their flour from France.
The L’Opera exemplifying the French experience and setting a new trend when it comes to the high-end bakery, pastry, and desserts. At L’Opera you will find ample seating space both inside & outside and they have taken care of every minute detail to bring the very best of French into India. The place is small, has simple and sophisticated ambiance and the glass shelves stocked with delicacies tempting customers to try everything from their menu. The menu of L’Opera Salon de Thé has the large collection of bread, everything freshly baked and Viennese pastries which includes croissant, Bayonne, and Brioche along with tarts, travel cakes and pastries that are available in mouthwatering flavors.
During the L’Opera bloggers meet, we settled for the outdoor seating area and tasted lip-smacking pastry, desserts, chocolates, and many more things. First of all, coffee was served along with cookies and the coffee was brewed perfectly and later on bread, Viennese, savory, cakes & pastry and chocolate bars served. Everything we had was fresh, delicious and mouthwatering. Above all, I’m sure you’ll also find something that fits your taste.

As breakfast staples or to accompany meals, L’Opéra’s fresh bread, baked daily, and 100% preservative free, bring a 3000-year-old European tradition to your family table. Although it has undergone evolutions in its shape, composition, and taste, its place in the heart of the French people has remained unchanged. From the quintessentially French Baguette to our more rustic, artisanal Sourdough bread (Pain de Campagne or Pain Paysan) or even the much-loved Italian Ciabatta made with fine Olive Oil, L’Opéra’s refined bread selection appeals to a variety of tastes and experiences. Couple our fresh fruit Confitures (Preserves) with our bread for a memorable breakfast.
