This Hidden Cafe On Shanthi Nagar's Double Road Is Located In A Beautiful Courtyard
The Courtyard is an al fresco eatery, with all day breakfast, hearty eats and desserts too. Plus, their open air location is perfect to enjoy the current crazy, good Bangalore weather.
What Makes It Awesome
What used to be a spacious courtyard of a house near Shanthi Nagar Bus Stand is now a cafe with food and ambience worth spending an entire morning, afternoon or evening in. The Courtyard is an outdoor cafe and is nicely tucked away from all the noise and bustle of the traffic despite being on the busy and prominent KH (Double) Road. With wooden tables and garden chairs set next to the open air and a retro playlist of smooth jazz and bluesy tunes playing in the background, it creates a nice and easy mood around your dining experience
The menu here has all cafe classics — from popular brekkie options like French toast and a full breakfast, complete with all the trimmings like skillet baked eggs, mashed potato, sausages and bacon. There’s also sandwiches, pizzas, pastas and salads. This place does dessert too, and their fruit panna cotta and lemon caramel custard are must-haves. But perhaps the sweetest thing on their menu are the prices, starting at an easy INR 120 and going up to a modest INR 360.
With it’s charming outdoor setting surrounded by greenery, it’s easy to lose track of time here. The decor and set up of this place is fun and whimsical, with a large rooftop, a studio on the first floor and a green courtyard that transforms itself depending on the event, be it an open mic evening, comic festival or an organic farmer's market. And we spotted a swing we’re calling dibs on for the next time we’re there.
Looking for a place to hold your exhibition, or perform an acoustic bit? The Courtyard also doubles up as a venue for anything that seems interesting enough to fit well with the cafe’s character. Drop them an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
