The WiFi is pretty good (and by good we mean, you can happily stream YouTube without buffering) and the coffee is better. While we don't generally order their in-house bites, the desserts are quite filling. Oh, and their hot chocolate is one of the best in Bangalore.

Spacious and well-lit, this is one of the go-to cafes for when you need to relax with a book or catch up with your BFF. Chill by the swing chair with a cup of coffee, take a few pictures by the many Instagrammable walls, and whatever else you do, you must not forget to order one their sinful bakes. We recommend the Oreo Cheesecake.

Wine, beer and cocktails are on the menu too, FYI!
Cute and cosy, the cafe will charm you with its quaint ambience. The corner sofa by the entrance is our favourite spot for chilling with a book or a friend while sipping wine and digging into rich desserts.
