You Need To Make A Date With This Gorgeous Art Cafe In Banjara Hills ASAP

Shortcut

The Gallery Cafe in Banjara Hills is an art project unto itself. All the elements – the food, music, decor, events – weave in seamlessly into the overarching narrative — one of art, aesthetics and culture. 

Inside the Artist’s Mind

You’ve got to stop and take a picture against the beautiful blue and white painted wall outside the cafe before you step in. It is the perfect spot for a selfie. The cafe space is quite big and half of it is dedicated to an art gallery. Walls host paintings of upcoming contemporary artists, books line shelves, the tables, and chairs are handcrafted, and everything’s on sale {you can literally buy the hand painted furniture}. There’s a story behind every design element in the café. The place has a simple and rustic charm, yet there is art on literally every surface. We also love the fact that the cafe is built around an actual tree (part of the decor). You can shop for art prints and other knick knacks at the little store right outside the gallery space. This is also where you can gawk at interesting art via regular shows. 

 

R.I.P Hunger

Everything on the menu is vegetarian. We opened with a Pineapple Sorbet — more of a palate cleanser, preparing us for the tasting ahead. The Quinoa Salad, earthy, bracing, and a smorgasbord of texture is mild on purpose. Tomatoes, cucumber, zucchini, capsicum, coriander, lettuce, and quinoa, collaborating to give you an instant lift. The iced Chillo Coffee drizzled with chocolate is like a dopamine spike {highly recommended}!

On to the mains – enter Cordon Bleu, flavoured rice, coconut curry, and a mammoth vegetable cutlet. The creamy, peppery, coconut curry with corn, cauliflower, beans, and carrots could be a standalone dish by itself. The Trio of Dips stars a salsa {light, loaded with flavour}, hummus {very Med} and Alfredo sauce {a creamy heavyweight}, and come with Melba bread toasted with hints of garlic. All the loaves are baked fresh in-house. We also tried the Funky Veggie Lover – a thin crust, white sauce based pizza, topped with mushrooms, jalapeños, capsicum, onions, and olives. The white sauce being a nice departure from the traditional tomato.Minutes before curtain call, we were regaled with some wispy Affogato {ice cream with a shot of espresso} gleefully splashed with chocolate sauce. Phew! We regret nothing.

So, We're Saying...

We would visit Gallery Cafe for the ambience any day. Because you can just sit here quietly with a book or attend a performance or an open mic session (the cafe plays a regular host to a bunch of interesting events). The vegetarian menu is also quite diverse for you to have fun with the food.

Price: INR 800 for two
