Big Yellow Door

One for the wallet! Big Yellow Door, or as it’s more commonly known BYD, has the best comfort food for the best prices. Their cosy space, filled with mattresses to sit on, Post-Its with raving reviews on the wall, and fairy lights really complement their drool-worthy baked pizzas and cheesy pastas. Their BYD Bomb Burger has made foodie headlines many a time, so you don’t really need to see a menu when you head there. Wash it down with a Kit-Kat shake, and you’re set! 

Price: INR 1,300 for two (approx.)

Timing: 12 PM to 10.30 PM


Managed by differently-abled staff, Echoes’ goodness permeates through their service, food, and ambience alike. It is also pretty light on the pocket, so there are essentially zero reasons you shouldn’t go to this place. The food—from their cream cheese pasta to the Death by Chocolate shake—is pure heaven.

Price: INR 1,400 (approx.) 

Timing: 11 AM to 11 PM


Maybe you just wanna walk through the market with a delish mutton roll in your hand. That’s where Chowringhee Lane comes in. The widely famous roll joint is for those short hunger bursts and this place is the fix you need. Head over for the best rolls in the area.

Price: INR 500 for two (approx.)

Woodbox Cafe

Affordable and epic food, a decent space, and hospitable staff, you can't go wrong with that combination, and Wood Box has it all. The variations in the menu surely leave you drooling and make it a tough choice to pick just one dish. As if the numerous options of burgers, sandwiches, pizza, pasta, and side dishes weren't enough, they have a wide range of beverages to offer as well. Go here for their cheesy nachos, Herbivore (or Carnivore) Platter and chocolate-y thick shakes. 

Price: INR 1000 (approx.)

Timings: 11 AM to 12 AM

The Construction Co. Cafe

As the name suggests, it's a construction-themed cafe with grungy lights, spare parts wall art and wood/brick walls. While you should definitely go for the ambience, it is their food you'll keep coming back. Char-grilled skewers, lasagna, Mac n Cheese and their freakshakes are some of our favourites. 

Price: INR 850 for two (approx.)

Timings: 11 AM to 11 PM

Sista'z Cafe

Embracing the Barbie pink in all its glory, this cafe seems quite Instagrammable, but that's honestly the least of our concerns right now because we can't get over the fact that this place is pet-friendly! The cafe is known for a variety of pizzas (the pictures on their Instagram are beautiful), friendly staff and good music—overall having a good time. 

Price: INR 950 for two (approx.)

Timings: 12 PM to 10 PM

Off Campus

The first thing we noticed about this cafe was the spacious rooftop, which is perfect for the upcoming winter months to hangout with friends. A rooftop cafe in Satyaniketan means it's safe to assume that people here love to have Shisha. Some of the popular dishes include crispy chilli potatoes, chilli mushrooms, and shakes.

Price: INR 1,000 for two (approx.)

Timings: 10.30 AM to 11.30 PM

The Bowtown Cafe

The Bowtown Cafe has a rustic interior and cosy seating with relatively dim lighting. It's a multi-cuisine restaurant serving Chinese, Continental, Italian, North Indian and finger food.

Timings: 11 AM to 11 PM

Crazy Kitchen Rooftop And Lounge

This is a rooftop cafe that exudes dhaba-style vibes with their choice of decor and seating. The most loved dishes here include white sauce pasta, honey chilli potatoes and Oreo shakes. In general, you'll be able to enjoy both North Indian and Italian here.
