Kitab Khana, which is just a short walk from the infamous Flora Fountain (Fort, Mumbai) holds a hidden gem that not many people know of. Nestled in the corner of the store is a dreamy, rustic café named 'Food For Thought Café that serves a plethora of drinks, appetizers and even some mouth-watering desserts for those with a sweet tooth. The concept of a cafeteria in a library is a highly amusing concept in itself add that the amazing food offered here makes it a unique experience indeed. I'd ordered the 'Cream Cheese Toast' for appetizers. Nothing can possibly go wrong with crispy, toasted bread, layered with silky cream cheese and served with a generous load of capers, green and black olives- and trust me, nothing did. This one's sure tingle your taste buds and is a textural feast. They also offer the 'Crispy Thai Salad' for those looking for a healthier alternative or those craving for some Thai flavors- OR BOTH! This dish is flavored with fragrant lemongrass and includes lettuce, succulent water chestnuts, and an assortment of thinly sliced exotic vegetables and spices that provide a burst of freshness in the first bite itself! But this is a *must visit* for everybody who loves books and is wanting to taste some refreshing and exotic dishes, and the freshly made desserts that they're well known for! Looking forward my next visit.
