Even with new cafes that keep coming up in the city every now and then, we just never seem to get enough of them. I think we should blame the coffee shop trend on F.R.I.E.N.D.S. After all, what better way to spend a lazy day than by whiling your time away at one of these cute places, with a steaming mug of coffee and friendly banter? Well, unless you count great ambience and the bonus of a great view! That will certainly make heading to such cafes more appealing. So, go ahead, pick from our list of charming cafes whose menu and decor have won our hearts and time.

Whether you decide to gorge on the all-day breakfast or sandwiches here or just sit back, sipping on a cup of hot chocolate, the cheery ambience at this cafe is bound to make you stay longer than you intended. The touch of vintage in its decor, right from the floral wallpaper to cute little boxes and an old mirrored cupboard, adds to the charm. We could just sit here all day! Read more about it here.

Cafe 132

While Cafe 132 is located on a lane with plenty of other options, what lures us here time and again is that it feels like you’re in Spain. Sevilla to be precise apparently. Done up mostly in white, the shades of green and yellow liven up the space, lending it a warm yet contemporary feel. While sitting outside with a mug of cappuccino and people-watching sounds like a great way to spend a lazy weekend evening, their indoor seating is just as charming when the buzz gets disturbing outside.

Built around an open courtyard and housed in Cinnamon boutique, Cafe Cassia’s simple yet appealing setup is great for when you want to catch up with your friends over a cup of coffee. Or even to just sit and work in peace for a while! With art on the walls and stores all around, don’t be surprised if you end up spending a whole day there. Run by Chef Abhijit Saha, the focus here is healthy and fresh food. So, load up on the salads and sandwiches, and end with one of their desserts. Trust us on this, the food and set-up is very inspiring – both creatively and culinarily.

Raintree Cafe

Be it browsing through artisan Indian brands at Raintree‘s boutique first or just making a beeline to the cafe, this place is a mini paradise in the city. A relatively tiny space housed in the colonial bungalow, the place has an old-world charm to it. Pick a spot with a nice view of the {massive} garden outside, and sit back with your favourite book {no working allowed here}. The limited menu here offers sandwiches, quiches, coffee and desserts to fill you up. We love that they let the kids loose here too!

Fresh Pressery Cafe At Good Earth

When you’re done splurging on the lovely goodies at the Good Earth store, make your way to the cafe outside {run by the Fresh Pressery folks}. Simply done up with seating under umbrellas and greenery all around, this is where we spend afternoons catching up with friends, thoughts and life in general. Going by the healthy options they have on offer in the food department, you won’t even have to worry about the calories either!

The French Loaf

While The French Loaf has several outlets across the city, the one near Richard’s Park has to be our favourite. Located in a charming bungalow, the indoor seating has an almost homely feel to it, and the al fresco area is where you should make yourself comfy on cool, breezy days. Shaded by umbrellas and surrounded by trees and greenery, it’s much like sitting in a garden, while you enjoy your cuppa. While you’re at it, throw in a sandwich and a pastry {or two}. Keep Odomos handy though.

Where: 1, Clarkes Road, Richards Town, Behind Clarence High School

Price: INR 300 for two

Dyu Art Cafe

Designed much like an old Kerala house, Dyu Art Cafe is known just as much for its amazing ambience as for their food. Think open courtyards, gabled roof, oxide flooring and cemented seats, all adding to the quaint charm of the cafe. Of course, artworks on the walls to gawk at while you sip on a cup of Cafe Mocha or Cold Coffee, adding that eclectic touch. We could spend many an evening here, lost in a book and savouring the pleasant vibes of the place. Read more about it here.

Where: 1, No. 23 MIG, KHB Colony, Next To Mangala Kalyana Mantapa, 5th Block, Koramangala

Cafe Cerrise

Apart from the sarees, jewellery, fusion wear and home decor here, what we love about Ambara boutique is the delightful cafe in their garden. Wicker furniture, checkered tablecloths and plenty of potted plants make it cute and charming. While you wait for your order to arrive, look around at the wall art, the handiwork of students from Srishti Institute of Art, Design and Technology. Too confused about what to order? We love their Spaghetti Carbonara and Grilled Fish with Salsa, along with a cooler to wash it all down. Read more about it here.

Where: 22, Annaswamy Mudaliar Road, near Ulsoor Lake, Ulsoor

Price: INR 800 for two

Cafe D’Hide

A relatively small, unassuming place, tucked away near Tim Tai, Cafe D’Hide is one of our favourite haunts. With its white and green theme, exposed brick design on the walls and shelves holding small potted plants and jars, the place is pretty enough to lure us in every time we pass by. Even if it’s just for a cup of their Hot Chocolate or for devouring their Seafood Pizza.

Where: 130, 1st A Cross Rd, Opp LG Showroom, 5th Block, Koramangala

Price: INR 600 for two

Contact: +91 8884812888
