Of Hot Chocolates, Cosy Corners & More: These Are Our Favourite Cafes In Bandra

Jayati posted on 23 August

Ten-Second Takeaway

Full of cafes, bars and cobbled streets, we love Bandra and everything about it. If you live here, well done. And if you come here often for your night outs, there’s plenty for you to do here. Hanging out at the umpteen cafes Bandra has to offer is one of the best ways to spend time either alone or with your friends. Since we love cafes as much as we love Hill Road, or Pali Naka, here’s our guide to our favourite cafes in Bandra.

The Bagel Shop

The Bagel Shop is one of the hippest cafes in Bandra, and we love it for its green and chic ambiance. It has an outside area, and two inside sections. Our favourite place to get some work done {they have WiFi here}, or go on a coffee date. It also helps that the cafe is hidden, and in a really peaceful by-lane of Pali Hill. If you go here, you must try their bagels and affogato coffee.

However, did you also know they serve authentic East Indian cuisine? They do, and all you need to do is ask for their ‘Queimada‘ menu, and indulge yourself in their pork vindaloo, pork sorpotel and more. You can read more about this menu here.

#LBBTip: It’s also pet-friendly, so if you feel guilty leaving your furry babies behind, get them along.

Birdsong - The Organic Cafe

Birdsong Cafe in Bandra is another lovely cafe for when you’re looking for breakfast options, quick coffee date with yourself, or just want to hang out.

It is an organic cafe, and they also serve vegan options on their menu. The hot chocolate here is purely sinful, and comforting {especially when the rain foils your other plans}. The decor is cosy, with bricked walls, and wooden chairs. We love the cafe for when we’re heading out for quick meetings.

#LBBTip: One of the few cafes in Bandra that offer a valet service.

Eat Around The Corner

Eat Around The Corner is another cafe we swear by for when we’re looking for healthy breakfast options {they do all-day breakfast here}.

The outside area is really chill, and casual, though the inside space has been done up beautifully. Here, everything is self-service, which we kinda prefer as its quicker and easier. Though the food here is decent and nothing exceptional, we like it for when we’re looking to chill in large groups.

Coffee By Di Bella {Pali Hill}

This one is housed inside the Title Waves bookstore in Bandra, and there’s nothing better than mixing up coffee, and books all at once.

This outlet of Di Bella is tiny, and can accommodate 10 people at one time. Though it gets really crowded on the weekend, and you may have to wait, it’s all worth it. The freakshakes, the waffles, and the mocha – all ingredients of a happy customer. This is a nice cafe for when you’re looking to chill by yourself, especially in the company of books.

The Village Shop

The Village Shop in Chimbai village is one straight out of a European street with its pretty seating, lush ambiance and healthy food menu.

This one opens up as early as 8.30 am, and is perfect for the post-workout breakfast. Though the dishes are definitely priced a bit exorbitantly, they never leave us disappointed. They also offer vegan options {you just need to ask}. Our favourite thing here is the spaghetti alio olio, the gluten-free and vegan pizza, and the deliciously comforting hot chocolate. What else? You’ll often come across shoots happening here {we told you, straight out of a European street}.

Blue Tokai Roasters

Blue Tokai made its way to Bandra only a few weeks ago, and we couldn’t be happier. Though it is crammed for space, there’s nothing better than freshly brewed coffee to save the day.

Since they also have WiFi, we suggest you head here early on weekdays and a get a nice spot. And if you, like us, love coffee, then this one is a must-visit. They also serve quick snackables and bread along with coffee – do try out their delicious cruffin. You can read more here.

Kitchen Garden By Suzzette

One of our absolute favourites in Bandra, Kitchen Garden by Suzette is breakfast, lunch and even dinner goals.

Kitchen Garden has a very simple menu, one which is full of fresh and delicious salads, amazing avocado toasts and even fresh smoothies. They have two sections- an outdoor seating area and the one inside. We love sitting outdoors, especially when its raining. The crowd is always super chic, and fit {enough to slightly shame us}. They also sell freshly baked bread inside, so make sure to try some of those out.

High On Tea

One of the newest cafes in Bandra, High on Tea is perfect for the chai-lovers. It has a soothing menu with its collection of colourful tea – Darjeeling, Oolong, Assam, English, herbal and even the fruity kinds.

Here, a pot of tea will set you back by INR 150, and a cup by INR 80. They also have mulled wine, hot cider and a lovely swing for you to chill on. Got monsoon blues? Sip them away here.

Candies

An oldie but a goodie, Candies is still our favourite cafe to hang out at in Bandra.

Candies has a simple menu and three outlets, and even though it has been there for a long time, we still love going in here. It is still extremely popular with the college kids, and we can see why. With their delectable puffs, cutlets, and the chutney sandwich, it is fairly simple affair. We also love the soups here – they are homely and freshly made. If you haven’t been here yet, do check it out and order in one of their soft puffs to commemorate the moment.

#LBBTip: Candies also has a cute gift shop tucked inside the cafe. You can read more about it here.
