Ten-Second Takeaway

Probably the first to introduce the all-day breakfast concept in Koramangala, Cafe Terra gives us the perfect recipe for a laidback morning — big, fat breakfasts to gorge on while you leisurely read your favourite comics.

Spanish Omelette, Waffles with Maple Syrup, English Breakfast

Sip On

Coffee Mocha

Winning For

Generous breakfasts, a charming ambience and the abundance of comic books make Cafe Terra a favourite with us.

Lowdown On The Ambience

Shelves filled with comics, framed posters of comic book covers and popular characters, and a combination of wooden furniture and bright colours in the decor — Cafe Terra will come across as a mix of a favourite bookshop and a neighbourhood cafe. Laidback with a touch of old school charm {thanks to all those vintage editions of comic books}, the ambience here always makes us want to linger around for a while longer {unless it’s a busy weekend}.

What’s On The Menu?

Serving everything from toast with butter and jam, cereal bowls and sandwiches to their signature waffles and crepes, the folks here really do believe in making you tuck into breakfast like a king. Plus, there’s must-try combos like English Breakfast, Belgian Breakfast and Ham Basket. Run by two friends, Ranjeet Ranade and Riad Mahmood, and later joined by Snigdha Nautiyal, the cafe’s stash of comics is mostly from Ranjeet’s personal collection and some from customers even.

We started off with the Spanish Omelette — a heavy duty omelette, nearly like a pie, loaded with shredded chicken and veggies, and topped with cheese. Served with toast and mashed potatoes, this one makes for a big breakfast. Next came the Waffles with Maple Syrup — fluffy but slightly crisp around the edges, this was an instant favourite. We also tried their Coffee Mocha, which comes with a hint of chocolate {we’d have liked a bit more of it though}. On another visit, we tried the English Breakfast spread with bacon, sausages, eggs of your choice, hash browns and grilled tomatoes — perfect to turn a Sunday breakfast into brunch! Owing to the lunch-time crowd, they have also added meals like Red or Green Thai Curry with rice and salad, Hakka Noodles with soup or momos, and Tibetan Thukpa.

So, We’re Thinking…

Cosy but not too big, the place can get crowded {and noisy} on weekends, so we suggest you plan a weekday trip. Also, keep an eye out for the Cafe Terra board on the first floor of the building; it can be easy to miss.
