Have You Hung Out At This Iconic Milkshake Place In Mylapore?
Everyone who’s anyone around Mylapore has hung out at Senthil Softy Zone and slurped down their yum milkshakes!
What Makes It Awesome
Started in 1987, Senthil Softy Zone has grown from a tiny joint that served only milkshakes to being everyone’s fave eatery. Ask anyone in Mylapore where this place is, and they will point it out. From office goers and couples to school students and families, everyone has been here and we can totally vouch for it!
While they started just with fresh fruit juices and soft serve ice creams, over the years, they have added a few dishes to their menu. Their puffs (baby corn, cheese, paneer), samosas and sandwiches starting INR 10 are quite a hit. Pass by around 4 pm and you’re sure to see students from schools like Siva Swami Kalalaya and Vidhya Mandhir gabbing over a glass of flavoured milkshake. Their chocolate and strawberry are a must try but our personal favourite is their vanilla.
Mahesh anna, who has been working there since 2002 tells us that the school kids who had come there in the early 2000s continue to come here. Nostalgia is one of the main reasons why people still go back to this spot. Even after transitioning from school, the taste of these ice creams still linger with the people, and that’s what keeps Senthil Softy Zone going, he says. We suggest you ditch Starbucks and Cafe Coffee Day and head to
So give Starbucks and Cafe Coffee Day a miss and head to Senthil Softy Zone the next time you are in Mylapore.
What Could Be Better
They have very limited seating so be prepared to stand for a while. They also tend to get crowded during the evenings, so be patient.
