Ten-Second Takeaway

Just because you’re on a diet or detox or a health trip doesn’t mean that you can’t dine out in style. We’ve rounded up the best healthy restaurants in Kolkata, including restaurants that offer plenty of healthy dishes, so that you don’t have to ditch your less enlightened friends. Clean eating just got a whole lot tastier.

Cafe Pranah

Relaxing music, interesting curation of thought-provoking books, minimalistic interiors and, of course, healthy food options are all reasons why you should head to Cafe Pranah to catch up on some reading and writing over a healthy meal.

Pair up a refreshing drink {Kashmiri kahwa iced tea and a range of smoothies} with a chickpea pancake, or a salad {choose from three bean and hung curd, oriental ribbon salad, grape and melon, three pepper and cottage cheese}.

We loved the pahadi corn and chilla with olives and jalapeños! They even have multigrain bhel, salad burgers, healthy wraps and guilt-free nachos.

Cafe Organica

This is an excellent place to grab a hearty, organic meal. You should definitely try the ragi and red rice dosa options, with a side of sprouted tikki chaat. Or a plate of lentil tacos with avocado and basil spring rolls.

They have plenty of salads, juices and shakes. Their menu in full of information about calories and protein and carbohydrate counts. You can also pick up a small range of healthy products for your pantry.

Mystic Yoga Cafe

This is a cafe attached to a yoga studio, so you can take a yoga class and afterward, enjoy a healthy meal. Their unlimited thaalis are just INR 100 between 12-3:30pm and the recipes follow Ayurvedic guidelines. Their sattu paranthas, breakfast options and sandwiches with hummus and spinach based toppings are quite nice.

The Protein Bistro

Once you get past The Protein Bistro’s rather orange-and-white theme, you’ll be pleased with their selection of both veg and non-veg healthy preparations, including an assortment of egg dishes, salads {try their broccoli almond salad}, oatmeal patties and grilled chicken and fish. If you’ve got a sweet tooth, don’t worry, there are healthy desserts, too, like protein pudding and protein fusion kulfi! In case you need to keep track of calories, carbs, proteins and fibre, their menu spells it all out for you.

Body N Mind Cafe

Eat well to stay well. Body N Mind Cafe has a fitness centre, with Zumba and yoga classes happening from time to time. The rather cute cafe has a special section that has a beach-themed motif.

The must-haves here are the baked samosas, chillas and paranthas, paired with a smoothie or glass of juice. If you want a heavier meal, or special desserts, call them 24-hours in advance.

Wabi Sabi

If you can get yourself out of the very addictive store section of Wabi Sabi, you will find an extremely spacious cafe section. Many dishes are healthy, including whole wheat wraps and sandwiches. They have plenty of salads, too. Try out their asparagus toast, and add on a soup — the pumpkin and rosemary soup and leek and cream of broccoli soup are fantastic.
