Thandi Got You Craving Great Coffee? These Are The Best Cafes In The City!

    Winters matlab warm clothes and warm, spicy drinks, amirite? We all love our kullad chais, but you know what they say... Coffee ka kaam sirf coffee hi kar sakta hai. So here's where you gotta head to get your artisanal coffee hit, coupled with a great (AKA cozy) ambiance. Bookmark this list for coffee dates, too. We promise you'll be thankful!

    Bombay Coffee House, Bandra and Fort

    We're just gonna start with the obvious ones. This lowkey old-world-esque Coffee House is a cozy spot to grab a cuppa with a small meal. If the madness at Linking Road gets your goat, escape to the (mostly) serene Bandra outlet, and you'll be spending hours here. While the menu isn't huge, the options are quite varied (Hakka Noodles and Rajma Chawal, both) and they've got great freshly baked goods to go with the coffee.

    The Unmissables: The Pesto Grilled Chicken sandwich (INR 275), and Madrid Mocha (INR 215)

    The Boojee Cafe, Bandra

    Boojee Cafe

    Bandra West, Mumbai

    We swear we're trying to make this NOT Bandra-heavy. But the Boojee Cafe is too cute to leave out of this list! With many options for eating healthy, this is an awesome place to go to if you've been thinking of shaving off a few pounds - especially with all those New Year resolutions haunting you. They've got vegan, gluten-free and keto food options to go with the coffee, which they offer with soy/almond/lactose-free milk, too!

    The Unmissables: The 4-Cheese Sandwich (INR 300) and the Aeropress (INR 200)

    Kala Ghoda Cafe, Kala Ghoda

    The adorable (yet iconic) Kala Ghoda Cafe is a rite of passage for the coffee enthusiasts of the city. Their in-house blend (which you can buy by the bag at the cafe, btw) is an amazing one, and they've also got amazing food... But you already know that. Head here during office hours to avoid the rush that's usually here.

    The Unmissables:  The KGC Club Sandwich (INR 350) and the Green Monster Pizza (INR 495)

    The Pantry, Fort

    The coffee at this Fort gem is made using beans from Chikmagalur, and apparently offer a nutty and balanced finish. One of the OG instagrammable cafes of the city, The Pantry is your best bet for a breakfast date in SoBo, and definitely a great bet for amazing coffee, too!

    The Unmissables: The famous Moringa and Almond Mylk Latte (INR 135) and the Naga Chilli Mushroom Omelete (INR 345)

    Da Capo Cafe and Bistro, Kharghar

    Navi Mumbai mein rehte ho? Yes, you may be far from all the coffee action in Bandra and Fort, but lovely places like Da Capo really do fill the gap. While we don't know about the nitty gritties of the beans, we loved that they have flavoured coffees, and Masala Chai, in case your date isn't a coffee person. The menu is pretty wide too, so we think you're gonna be tucking into some awesome comfort food, too!

    The Unmissables: The Ridiculous Chicken (INR 265) and the Butterscotch Cappuccino (INR 135)

    Leaping Windows, Versova

    This quaint (but by no means ignored) Versova spot uses a house blend, which is a single-estate coffee from theindianbean.com. Basically, it's great coffee! They've got Bulletproof Coffee too, if you're about that life, and food that's vegan, , keto and gluten-free. The comic book library they have is a great way to show off your nerdyness to your date, and they've got rare comics, too! 

    The Unmissables: The 4-Cheese Sandwich (INR 300) and the Aeropress (INR 200)
