Get Your Cameras Out & Head To These Insta-Worthy Cafes In Mumbai

Ten-Second Takeaway

We live in amusing gastronomical times – a world where if it hasn’t been “Instagrammed”, have you even eaten out? Mumbai is home to some of the most fascinating cafes with unique decor. Since we are all about those millennial goals, we’ve rounded up our favourite most Insta-friendly cafes in the city. #GetClicking

Grandmama's Cafe

If you’ve been to any of Grandmama’s cafe outlets across the city, you’ll know how cute and adorable the decor is. The entire space has a very European aesthetic to it with Dutch windows, pastel flowers pots and quirky framed quotes. Almost like your grandma’s house, it is cosy, lively and serves the best mac n cheese in town.

 

Mockingbird Cafe

Mockingbird Cafe Bar in Churchgate is one of our favourite cafes in the city. With its sweet decor, dim hanging lights, and a tiny library tucked away in the corner, it makes for the most insta-worthy images {we’ve been there}. If you are a book lover and love hot chocolate, make your way here and spend some quiet time by yourself.

 

Jamjar Diner

If we are talking about Insta-friendly cafes, we dare not miss out Jamjar diner. Both the outlets {Bandra & Versova} have a unique decor, with jukeboxes {which we love}, and a delicious breakfast menu. Jamjar in Versova also has an outside area, with tiles and lights making it perfect during the evening to capture on your phones. Similarly, Jamjar in Bandra with its orange booths, and hand-painted glasses is perfect. And they have a gorgeous jukebox too.

 

Garde Manger

Garde Manger is for you if you love plants, and all things green. It stays true to its decor since it matches with the over-all theme of the place – a vegetarian place with vegan options. Therefore, we found the décor to be fresh and the café itself seems like a sweet little basket full of flowers {they have really dotted the place with flowers and pots}.

They also have a cute yellow-painted bicycle with an attached basket which is also always full of flowers. Here even the food doesn’t disappoint, and we definitely rate it high on our insta-meter.

Homemade Cafe

The Homemade Café in Oshiwara will transport you to Covent Gardens in London, and that’s saying something. Though the café is slightly on the expensive end and the food isn’t extraordinary, do go here for a chill brunch with your pals. We love it for its sweet décor, especially the exterior that belongs to any European street in summertime. Our tip? Make sure to capture the fairy lights from the café and they don’t need no filter.

 

Birdsong Cafe, Bandra

With Bandra itself being a really insta-friendly area in Mumbai with its cobbled streets and narrow lanes full of coloured houses, Birdsong café takes our heart away. The café has a very minimal look with exposed bricked walls and its wooden furniture, and that makes it really insta-friendly. Of course, if you get bored of the space, turn to the beautifully-plated dishes, and their hot chocolate.

 

Central Perk 7

A F.R.I.EN.D.S-themed café in Kharghar basically screams hashtags and filters. That’s right, Central Perk 7 houses the sitcom’s legendary orange couch and has posters of the characters hung on the wall. Want to recreate your own NYC dream? Kharghar isn’t far {or is it?}.

Teapot Cafe, Fort

A café dedicated to beautiful teapots is hidden away in Fort, and begs for our attention with its kitschy vibe. Why do we say so? The Teapot café is cosy and every corner here {almost} is Instagrammable. There’s always tea being poured here and the café also has a very Central Perk-ish vibe to it. A double bonus, perhaps?

Tamasha

Think lights, hundreds of lights just hung from the ceilings that make for a rather cosy and dreamy frame. This Delhi-based restaurant opened up in Mumbai a while back and has established its Insta-worth – all you need is a camera, and an account that is ready for all the hashtags. Go here for dinners and on the weekends for the dancing and their delicious cocktails.

 

Hello Guppy

Though the food doesn’t match up to its outrageous décor, Hello Guppy is a must-visit. This Japanese eatery opened back in May 2017 in Mumbai at BKC and if you haven’t been here yet, let us tell you – your Instagram is missing out. The word eccentric maybe underwhelming here, but that’s the vibe you’d get here. Find inflatable toys, glow signs and more that have been hung up as part of its ‘out-of-the-box’ décor. Do we love it? May be. But do we want to Instagram it? Hell, yeah.
