Pune is known for a number of cafes. Some Insta-worthy, some legendary, we have compiled a list of our five best cafes wich are sure to make your day with good food and ambience. Read on.
There's a picturesque old-school bungalow on FC road that has been turned into a spacious cafe. With a Pinterest-worthy decor and calm, green surroundings, Cafe Kathaa is a must-visit place for those who like to enjoy good books while munching on amazing food. Bookworm foodies, this place offers you a lot of interesting books to read. For the tech-savvy readers, they also have kindles on every table. As far as the food is concerned, there are many yummy options to pamper your taste-buds. Health freaks, this cafe also serves many healthy food and beverage options, We ordered the pineapple and ginger drink which was simply mind-blowing. We also tried the falafel burger platter which came with a dollop of hummus and Piri-Piri fries. We gave a miss to the normal sushi and tried their signature egg sushi.
Where Else Cafe
When in Viman Nagar, make a stop at one of Pune's most Insta-worthy cafes- Where Else cafe, which has special hot chocolate that is to die for. Once you have it, it’s going to make sure you come back for seconds, without a doubt. The banana blondie shake is made of bananas and white chocolate and is pretty amazing too. Their salads, especially the beetroot & feta salad, are quite nice.
Tucked in the leafy lane of Mayur Colony, near Club Solaris, Paddy's Café is one of the gorgeous looking eateries in Kothrud. Simple yet charming, the decor of the place mirrors the greenery of Karve Nagar through hanging planters, climbers, and tall, potted plants everywhere. From creamy risottos to meaty burgers and sinful desserts, there's something for every mood. We, however, loved their fish croquettes with garlic aioli, Mediterranean bruschetta topped with bell peppers and feta, and paneer fajitas.
Waari Book Cafe
Nestled in the quiet lanes of Karishma Chowk, off Karve Road in Kothrud, Waari Book Cafe, boasting of pleasantly off-beat decor coupled with a peaceful vibe, is the ultimate paradise for all the readers in town. From creations by Enid Blyton to Amitav Ghosh and from Robin Cook to Margaret Mitchell, Waari houses over 3,000 books, across genres, authors and taste. So pick up your favourite book, place yourself comfortably on a cosy couch and unwind like never before! We loved the pasta sonata for INR 120 and the melt-in-the-mouth sizzling brownie for INR 100. We recommend you try their Oreo shake for INR 120.
Vohuman Cafe on Sassoon Road is one of the few places in town that are open right from early morning. It is a legendary café that is famous for its fresh bun maska, cheesiest omelettes in addition to soul-warming teas. Also, remember to dig into their egg bhurji. It's perfect for a hearty breakfast, especially one when you are broke and hungry. Plus, visit this spot with your friends and have a conversation over a cup of tea. All these delicacies are value for money.
