Lowdown on Ambience

The two-floored café is decorated with quirky things from all over the city. The walls are covered in empty picture frames and the pillars have messages from everyone who has ever visited the restaurant, including famous people like Director Shankar! But getting a seat upstairs is definitely a better idea, because the big windows looking out onto Dr Nair Road make the experience even better.

Don’t forget to look up, the ceilings are covered in art as well. There’s not a single spot of the café that isn’t decorated and we don’t mean in a crowded and distracting way, but it’s got character. It’s the perfect place to sit down with a book, indulge in a Monster Shake and while away your time.

What’s On The Menu

Designed like a newspaper, the café’s menu has just been revamped to add more variety. Initially they had the standard breakfast offerings {eggs, pancakes and waffles}, but now they’ve added some South Indian delicacies like the Kozhi Idli and Kal Dosa {you can get it with paneer or chicken}. They even have a selection of Maggi dishes featuring everything from Chilli Cheesy to Tandoori Delight.

But the section that gets the most attention is their saapad. It is just as you would imagine, a full meal with rice and the works. The Saapad section is split into vegetarian and non-vegetarian and there’s a variety of choices that you can pour over before you make your choice including Butter Chicken Biryani, Ghar Ka Khana and Soul Meal {rice with Malabar fish curry}. Their latest addition are the Local Curries, which steps away from the burgers, pastas and pizzas into more local dishes like Paneer Butter Masala {which is served with roti} and even a Chettinad Chicken Curry.

Monster Shakes are becoming quite the popular trend and Café Central has them too {another new addition to the menu} with options like Popcorn Crunch {popcorn, ice cream, whipped cream, brownie and caramel drizzle} and the Valentino {slice of red velvet, ice cream, whipped cream and strawberry drizzle} to name a few.

So, We’re Thinking...

The unique food options are enough to keep you coming back for more. But the best part is that the restaurant is open from 11am to 11pm and throughout the day they serve everything featured on their menu. So even if you show up at 4pm for lunch, they’ll serve you exactly what you want. We can’t think of a better reason to visit.
