House of Bread and Cakes
Among an array of bakeries that began its venture in the 40’s is the famous Bosotto Bros Bakery which was in the heart of Mount Road in the Thousand Lights area. The bakery was well known for its Japonaise cakes filled with butter ice cream and traditional plum cakes. During Kamaraj’s reign as the Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu, Queen Elizabeth paid a visit to Madras and on hearing that it was Prince Andrew’s first birthday, the CM called ordered a birthday cake from Bosotto Bros. A vintage picture of the Queen cutting the cake in the presence of former CM Kamaraj adorned the wall of the bakery. The place was knocked down for the Metro rail construction, but that did not stop us from mentioning them. Bosotto Bros has given so many fond childhood memories for the 80’s and 90’s generation.
