Essentially an eatery that does a fun twist of healthy food by mixing ingredients or fusing two cuisines, JustBe Cafe is also a place to relax and unwind, thanks to its location in the residential Sadashiv Nagar. With salads, starters, soups (including a very tasty Almond Broccoli Soup which is a chef's special made with broccoli and almond mylk), and a few mains to fill you up. They also do a delicious millets, dry fruit and nuts payasam. Also, they have whole wheat crust pizzas, and special cheese toppings to go with it.
The set-up is pretty, with a little garden space, a warm foyer that has an old-school bookshelf, simple wooden tables and metal chairs making up the space. They also have a few games — Ludo and Jenga, among others, to keep you engaged and offline, for once! Once here, don’t rush; we found it rather relaxing and cut off from the noise of the city and stayed quite a few hours.
Service though a little slow, is still good. The quality of food, ingredients and ambience is top-notch. We particularly liked that this cafe doesn’t keep reminding you that they’re a healthy or vegetarian place. It comes very naturally and organically into the food, and the space in general. They also make an effort to understand what exactly you’d like so they can make minor modifications to your meal. I also highly recommend their drinks. The Pink Nimbu Pani is sweetened with jaggery, Elaneer Punch which is tender coconut water blended with rose water and chia seeds, or the almond cold coffee — yum!
