These Cafes In Gachibowli Are Where We Want To Chill Post Work
Tucked away inside the busy lanes of Gachibowli near Urdu University is a quaint, and scenic eatery called Ants Cafe. It is calm and gorgeous — perfect for dates with bae and best friend. This looks like a glasshouse, and if you're up for a quiet time, you've got to get here. Go for their Stuffed Vol-Au-Vent (a cheesy puff pastry), Upside-Down Blueberry Cheesecake in a jar, Tiramisu, Chamomile Tea, and Peach Tea.
Get stumped by the varieties offered at Cafe Eclat. They have a large menu that is filled with coffee, ice teas, sweet treats, baked goods, and regular nibbles. We love the omelettes and bagels here that we enjoy with a cup of Hot Caramel Matcha Latte. Don't like matcha? This might just change that for you. On your way out, get yourself some biscottis and freshly baked bread packed. We recommend the Seedy Bread and Tuscan Baguette.
If you loved the Begumpet branch of Deli 9 (we were sad when it got closed), you're sure to adore its Gachibowli branch too. The decor is far cooler and has funky wall graffiti and neon lights. The food is always quite good here, and we love their rice bowls. The fusion Manchurian bowls and Schezwan bowls make for an epic Monsoon snack, but our all-time favourite is the Khow Suey Bowl. The soup isn't thick and is more like a gravy. It goes really well with the noodles, and the fried peanuts and onions just add the right crunch. Take our word for it, and go eat.
Another small but absolute stunning cafe is the one right under Oakwood Residency. Café 115 is decked up with nice lighting, quirky walls, and a variety of seating. But, what will really make you revisit this place time and again is its coffee. Choose from cappuccino to espresso and drink it from a cute plastic cup. Also, this is easily one of the best coffee places in Hyderabad.
Cafe De Loco
This rustic looking Goan shack themed restaurant will fill the void in your heart for all the times you've been to Goa without your doggie partner. At Cafe De Loco in Gachibowli, you can connect with dog parents and their pooches as their pet school. But wait, there's more. They have a separate pet kitchen that offers doggie approved food. Isn't that amazing?
Bikers, gear-heads, and coffee lovers – head to Driven Café in Gachibowli if you haven’t already to rent sportscars and superbikes for a ride. Known for its selfie coffee and rugged (and grungy) ambience, this cafe is where you can chill out. Like properly. You can pair your drinks with nibbles like chili garlic cheese sandwich, toasts, and brownies. The best part is Driven Cafe is open till 12 am so if you're craving coffee at midnight, you know where to go.
Granny's Art Cafe in Gachibowli is plucked right out of a picture book. If you're someone who enjoys a comfy seating and board games, this works for you. Set up in a home-like environment, this cafe is known for its range of salads and omelettes. They serve up around 14 types of Maggi, so the next you're craving comfort food, definitely drop by here.
The Old Madras Baking Company
The Old Madras Baking Company is a classic we keep going back to. When you are here, you must absolutely try the Madras Coffee, Shrimp & Artichoke Pizza, and bagels. Their breakfast spread, although limited, is perfect for a lazy weekend meal. Do try their Mushroom Omelette or Spinach & Feta Cheese Omelette.
The Bake Factory
All day breakfast is always a good idea. Even at 2 am in the night and if you love tons of meaty options, The Bake Factory is your constant. It has a Full English that comes with chicken sausages, mushroom, egg, and more veggies. Plus a coffee or juice of your choice. Want more? Go for the Carnivore Feast that comes with chicken sausages, bacon, pork sausages, pulled chicken, and vegetables.
Located inside the Fabindia Experience Centre in Gachibowli, Fab Cafe will wrap you in its demure aura right from the moment you step in. The dainty place is done up with stunning wall decor (Very Instagram-worthy), a blue-tiled wall with a huge mirror and plants. With plenty of sunlight gushing in, we really loved whiling our time during the sunset for scoring great views while listening to Carnatic and western classical music the cafe was playing. Get here for kombucha, Shakarkandi Chaat Salad, Veggie Chips with Cashew Cheese.
