We are happy to report that the cafe scene is not limited to just South Kolkata anymore. Other parts of the city are fast catching on. We recently came across the charming Cafe By The Lane in Howrah whose exterior looks like something out of an English town and it serves the most sinful shakes and desserts!
Shh... We Found This Quaint Cafe In Howrah Serving Delish Cheesecakes And Shakes
What Makes It Awesome
The lucky folks in Shibpur, Howrah have got a cosy spot to hang out at. And it's pretty good looking too - there are plenty of photo ops in this super cute and oh-so-whimsical cafe.
This lovely cafe is powered jointly by Booktique - a bookstore based out of Southern Avenue, Swag Up - a brand selling oxidised jewellery and Bodhita Essentials - a local label selling handmade cosmetics. So you will find that they stock an interesting range of books, so you can sit for hours with your book purchase and a cup of coffee or tea and snacks. You can pick up jewellery and handmade soaps etc from here.
The menu lists a variety of small bites and mains. Check out their garlic bread section and thick shakes. Suggestions from the chef if you are feeling like something light - Chicken Cheese Balls or the Burger Agapostala. Feeling quite hungry and want a full meal? Try the Chicken Frances, a Spanish Omelette or the Rum Burnt Honey Chicken.
What Could Be Better
Cafe By The Lane also promotes young talent, musicians, artists with their ongoing creative events once a month..Check out their Facebook page to see what's coming up. You can also come here with the squad and try out the guitar at the cafe.
