Have An Authentic Kerala Tea Shop Experience At Malabar Cafe In SG Palya

    SG Palya, Bangalore

    What Makes It Awesome

    This quaint little tea shop is everything you want to see before or after a long day of work. With a bunch of college students, corporate employees and regular neighbourhood folk hovering around it at all times, what makes Malabar Cafe unlike any other is its raw and local vibe. Offering a small variety of teas and coffee that you can pair up with traditional Malabari snacks like Pazham Pori {banana fritters|} and egg puffs, this little shack manages to draw around it quite a crowd. Armed with a chaiwallah and his station, with shelves of quick bites beside him, the 'less is more' appeal seems to work like a charm. The chai is soul-satisfying and the warm and familiar bustle of people standing outside with you, sipping their tea and munching on their bread pakoras, only adds to the calm and comfort of the whole experience. It's a great place to make new friends and unwind. Much like a mini vacation.

    What Could Be Better?

    There are only two tables inside which are almost always taken so this isn't exactly a sit-down kinda place. It's not trying to be one either which is part of the charm.

    What's My Pro Tip

    They make a mind-blowing glass of Sulaimani Tea you should try. It melts all your sorrows away {temporarily}.

    Anything Else?

    The prices, much like everything else about the cafe, are minimalist. A cuppa will only cost you a humble INR 10.
