Aiming to make people feel wanted and feel like they belong so that they could enjoy the simple happiness of hanging out in a cafe or chill with friends in an event, The Kalakkal Cafe in Kotturpuram came into being. It was started by Vidyasagar NGO in Chennai which focuses on the development and spreading awareness about differently-abled people.
The Kalakal Cafe is open every Saturday and provides a space for you to attend many events from Open mics to stand up comedies by leading comedians. They even host storytelling and poetry reading. Then there are Saturdays where you want nothing but enjoy tea and chat with your friends. They have a ramp specifically built for those who cannot walk, a colourful menu in braille and quirky mugs and sippers. Singalongs, birthday celebrations and even cricket on days, this place is a place for

There is a food store right outside which serves different types of Samosas, pastries, bajjis and other snacks.

They have events almost every Saturday so keep a watch on their facebook page for the same. You just get comfort munchies on regular Saturdays. It also is a place for differently-abled people to socialise and interact so do respect their space and make them feel home.
