All day breakfasts, delicious Goan food, the best prawn or cheese rissois, a variety of coffees and service with a smile – all are on offer at this cute and value for money café in the Fontainhas or Latin Quarter in Panjim. Nestled in one of the small bylanes lies Caravela Café & Bistro that is open all day until 7pm. The cute ceramic collection of jars that are displayed on the shelves or the cute Positive Vibes Only posters add to the eclectic charm of the cafe. Our favourite was the Glass Window with coffee beans in it and the line, ‘ In Case Of Emergency Break Glass’. Caravela has been where locals and tourists that wander in to Sao Tome go, & if you have never tasted a Rissois then this is the perfect place to start that culinary adventure. Traditionally made with prawns, they even have a vegetarian option here made of cheese and both were heavenly.
An All-Day Breakfast At This Cute Café In Goa Is What Our Food Dreams Are Made Of
What Is It?
They have a variety of coffees from different brands across the country and a variety of coffee machines to serve them. Mr. Carlos, the owner of the place is always around with a smile and is super knowledgeable about all things Goan. P.S. he’s always up for a chat if the cafe is not too busy. Other than the Rissois, the ever-popular Goan Potato Chop or their meat sandwiches in Poi make for a great quick bite. If you have time, then opt for their Pastas, Salads, Pizzas or their Goan preparations like Sorpotel, Vindaloo or Feijoada, a lovely Goan Portuguese dish that is made with the local kidney beans and Chorizo sausages. And then of course polish it all off with a Pancake that comes with different topping options or even the Serradurra pudding that is again a must try if ever in Goa.

So we say take that walk around Fontainhas, with its charming narrow lanes, colourful homes with charming exteriors, stores and then grab an all-day breakfast or lunch or even an early dinner here and all at an affordable price.
