Hood Guide: Jodhpur Park Is Brimming With Cosy Cafes, Bakeries, Flower Shops & Boutiques

    If you have always thought of Jodhpur Park as a calm and quiet residential area, then your ideas are about to be shattered. It’s turned into a hub of trendy eating joints and shops.

     

    Blue Mug

    Blue Mug

    Jodhpur Park, Kolkata

    Blue Mug has been the talk of town for quite some time now. It is one of the most favoured hangout places {especially for youngsters} not only because of their cosy ambience but also because they have pocket-friendly prices and both indoor and outdoor seating arrangements. Their shakes are really popular. A satisfying meal for two here will set you back by about INR 700 or less.

    Abar Baithak

    Abar Baithak

    Jodhpur Park, Kolkata

    This was the first café to pop up in Jodhpur Park and it literally owned the café scenario in this hood. One of the most well-

    known in the city, Abar Baithak has undergone a revamp — it has two floors now and a theme centre around Kolkata’s favourite sleuth, Feluda. They also have books on sale along with other things like funky coffee mugs, bags and cushions. There’s even a carrom board but you have to be lucky to find that spot empty! It’s spread over two floors. If you are a Feluda fan or just wanna unwind with your people then this it. It costs about INR 550 for two people.

    Lokaahar

    Lokaahar

    Jodhpur Park, Kolkata

    This is a quirkily done-up restaurant serving Bengali, Continental, Thai and Chinese. We loved the cosy adda spot outside with carrom and chess boards. Their Mocha Chingri is now a Kolkata favourite! You have to shell out around INR 600 for two people here.

    The Noodle Hub

    The Noodle Hub

    Jodhpur Park, Kolkata

    This is a restaurant serving only Chinese {and some Pan Asian} cuisine. The best part is that they have a lunch buffet at a super-cheap price — INR 249 {plus GST}.

    Seedz Beanz and Aroma

    This is a small joint serving hookah, coffee and other fast food eatables. A meal for two will set you back by INR 400 {approx}.

    The Taste Maker

    The Taste Maker

    Jodhpur Park, Kolkata

    Super-reasonable Chinese food, cosy atmosphere and friendly staff, head over to The Taste Maker if you are in a cash crunch and need some Chinese soul food. A meal for two will be around INR 500.

    Melodrama

    Melodrama

    Jodhpur Park, Kolkata

    Need customised cakes? Call Melodrama! They have made a reputation for being one of the top-notch dessert joints in the city.

    Rollick Ice Cream Parlour

    Rollick

    Jodhpur Park, Kolkata

    With a variety of sundaes, shakes, and scoop flavours, this ice cream parlour is a dream. And they keep adding specialities like the Ice Cream Taco. A small seating area means you can plonk yourself down if you want to finish off your treat right there.

    Flurys

    Flurys

    Jodhpur Park, Kolkata

    You need not go to the Park Street Flurys every time you feel like having their legendary Baba Cakes or Rum Balls. The takeaway store in Jodhpur Park has a range of pastries, cakes, chocolates, cookies, savouries and an assortment of breads.

    Don Giovanis

    Don Giovanni's

    Jodhpur Park, Kolkata

    They have a never-ending menu which can make your head reel but the pizzas are a hot favourite, and the Chinese and Italian dishes are very popular. They also have momos — the sauce they serve it up with is amazing. Cost for two would be around INR 750.

    Sienna Store

    Sienna Store

    Jodhpur Park, Kolkata

    This is the original store that was launched way before the store and cafe came along in Hindustan Park. It’s a treasure trove of beautiful terracotta and ceramic pottery pieces, including some cool jewelry. From crockery to show pieces, they have it all. The clothing section has an excellent collection of sarees and dresses.

    Nee and Oink
