The lethal combination of being an avid reader and a foodie ensures you land up in KitabKhana! Its café “Food for Thought” is one vegetarian cafe I am utterly fond of, in spite of being a non-vegetarian. The vibrant ambience – the turquoise walls and the Hollywood Posters give it the perfect look of a sophisticated English cafe and are enough to light up your day! The menu includes everything you would want to have for brunch. The authentic Sindhi dishes, the Bombay street food and the pure English & Mediterranean dishes make the menu a variety to choose from! An ideal & quite place for readers & brunch lovers, every table is occupied with one of your kind.
Oxford Book Café: Tea Addict? Avid Reader? Well then, this is the place you ought to visit.

With more than 200 varieties of teas, every tea is served in a unique & authentic way. From Truck Driver’s Masala Chai to Earl Grey, they serve it all! Organic, Herbal & Indian – whatever you wish to have! You can grab a book from the store and read comfortably while sipping your favourite tea!

It is impossible that you stay in Mumbai and you haven’t been here! And if you got to show an outsider the various cafes & kitchens in Mumbai, this is the place you would certainly get them to! I always wonder about the exquisite & uncanny structure that Candies has! The walk goes on and on and every time you wish to grab a different table for a different experience altogether. The quick to have menu, the angry bird cakes, the salad bar & the lemonades, just a place where one would want to spend time….long time!
Just when you see the entrance of Khyber, you know you are in for some authentic Mughlai cuisine. The ambience, the walls, the tables, the roof – every look of Khyber is traditionally Mughal! It feels like you have entered the imperial kitchens of the Muslim Mughal Empire. Their melt-in-mouth Kebabs are something that would make you revisit the place, again & again!
South Indian cuisine specialist, this place is ideal for a south Indian food lover. Once you reach Dakshin Culture Curry, from the entrance to the food, they ensure you feel you are in South India! At least for a while, till you are there! It has every unconventional and unexplored non-vegetarian cuisine from the South! And as they say, “When Culture met Curry”, they truly live up to it!
The old, raw, small &cosy Bird Song Café in Pali Hill is a perfect hang-out zone for friends serving some organically tasty food. That is what makes it unique. It is no less than McLarens in HIMYM & Central Perk in Friends. And when there, my favorite booth would be climbing the rustic stairs & occupying the top table!
The attacks of 26/11 made the place a talked about one, across India. Worth mentioning: they have the bullet marks on their walls, still! But for a regular at Colaba there is no other café like Leopold Café. So much so, that you decide to go some other place in Colaba but end up drinking & eating at Leopold!
