White Canary Café's spooky donuts on Halloween were not a hocus pocus, rather, the donuts were a perfect Halloween treat. The soft donuts with a thick layer of goodness on the top, melted in my mouth in every bite.
This year, White Canary Café celebrated the festivities of Halloween with a diversified range of brunch items and signature coffees named after comics book characters.
The exclusive Halloween day's offers were available from October 31 to November 2. With the best view, the café was also decorated according to Halloween theme with lights and carved pumpkins and spooky ghost characters.
Rowshan Ara, a house-wife came to the café with her daughter and grandson. She told The Business Standard, "I used to come here with my daughters to have coffees; it was a regular thing for us before the pandemic. This year I brought my grandson on Halloween. My grandson loves sweets; hence, he loved the Blueberry Butter Pancake for its buttery sweet flavour and blueberry sauce. And of course the 10-year-old loved the spooky yet, happy decorations as well."
"I think decorating the restaurant on Halloween with carved pumpkins and lights created a happy atmosphere which we all need right now for what's happening all around the world," she added
