Call Your College Squad And Chill At The Best Hangout Spots In Pune
Symbians from the Viman Nagar campus who love to enjoy authentic Punjabi food without burning a hole in their pockets, head to Punjabi Dhaaba. The place provides typical veg and non-veg Indian dishes coupled with desi bread and beverages. The best part about the place is that it has the option of half-plate dishes, which lets students enjoy a variety at affordable prices. Everyone swears by the butter chicken and butter garlic naan here. And, don't miss out on their lassi and lota chaanch.
Cheap and always buzzing with activities, NCC Canteen right next to Symbiosis SB road campus is a temple for youngsters. From breakfast items to lunch thalis, you will find it all here under INR 100. Just outside the canteen, there is a juice stall where you can gulp down healthy fresh fruit juices to beat the heat. Students love this place, as do native Punekars who still visit the place to jog down the memory lane.
Fantasy Snack & Juice Bar
Students of Wadia College dearly accept it as their ‘katta’, Fantasy Juice Bar at Bund Garden Road is the place to go if you’re hungry and broke. It offers a large variety of rolls, noodles, curries, cold coffees, fresh juice and burgers. It is also known as one of the most famous cafes in Pune. You must-try their sitaphal milkshake for INR 90 and when the season comes, the mango milkshake is a total winner out here. It is open even on Sundays and is operational from 8:00 AM to 11:30 PM. It is approximately priced at INR 300 for two.
MIT folks, there is no dearth of cool cafes in Kothrud. Whether you are bunking your lectures or are taking a break for a cuppa chai, Mayur Colony is the best hangout spot for you. There are many cafes and eateries here, such as Iddos, Monginis, among other bakeries. Even the iconic Durga cafe is right here, where you can eat a sandwich and drink their special cold coffee.
When it comes to the best Irani breakfast in town, nothing beats the legendary Cafe Goodluck on FC Road. Established in 1935, the restaurant is known for bun maska and special chai. However, for a more scrumptious meal (that is dinner or lunch), one must try their tawa kheema, boneless chicken biryani and roomali roti. For desserts, order nothing but the caramel custard. Students from FC Road, BMCC and Gokhale swear by it.
