If you’re looking for a dreamy date in the breezy outdoors, then Kipling Cafe is hands down, one of Chennai’s favourite places for candle light dinners and more! Here’s what we love.
We Found A Magical Date Night Spot On ECR & There's A New Bar Attached Too
Dine Under The Stars
One step inside this resto-bar off the East Coast Road and we were so impressed. Located towards the beach, Kipling Cafe welcomes you with charming hut-style cabanas decked up with dreamy white curtains and lit by candles all around. While the sprawling lawn hosts the cabanas, the Kipling Masala is a new lit bar addition that gives us strong Greek vibes. We love!
While a dinner here is the best bet, if the weather is kind the place is just as lovely in the afternoons. With the advantage of being along the coast, Kipling is not a bad idea for a lunch date either as their inside seating and rooftop dining has got you covered. You can now enjoy your meal with a view of the beach from their small but lovely rooftop space and sip on all the cocktails you want.
When Food Is Bae
What we loved the most from their continental menu were the starters. Their Mixed Seafood Basket and the enormous Thai Sharing Appetiser Platter is mouthwatering and is super filling that you might want to skip the main course. If you’re a couple of foodies, dig in! They also serve Mediterranean pizzas, ravioli and tenderloin beef and some Thai specialties. For those of you looking for some tandoori delicacies and Punjabi food, then Kipling Masala has a separate menu with a whole range of dishes for you.
For regular visitors, Kipling has always been a couple’s favourite and this new bar addition to the lovely place just made us want to go back again. While they serve all kinds of drinks, we recommend trying their LIITs. If you like a fruit punch, their Cranberry and Peach LIITs are a must-have.
So what you waiting for? Put an end to all that ‘perfect date spots in Chennai’ searches and just drive down to this cafe with bae already!
Make sure to book a table well in advance for you and your date as it gets packed especially on weekends.
