Ten-Second Takeaway

Dating is hard, but picking a place for your date can sometimes be harder. Especially when you’re a vegetarian. Pune has a myriad of dining options for every budget and every palate; so we’ve swiped right and shortlisted the following 8 veggie-only places.

One O Eight Cafe

Koregaon Park’s resident hipster go-to, One O Eight Cafe resonates good vibes. Their vegetarian fare is simple but delicious, and one portion size is generous enough to share between two people. One O Eight is a great place to meet your Tinder crush for the first time, or even for a Sunday brunch date.

Pro Tip: Keep an eye out for off-the-menu Specials & their superb vegan desserts that are ideal for sharing {wink wink}.

Little Italy

An oldie but a goodie; Little Italy has four outlets across Pune, from Bund Garden Road to Chinchwad. They’re famous for their comfort-laden Italian – Mexican fare. Recreate that famous Bella Notte kiss (from Lady and the Tramp) over a plate of your favourite spaghetti.

One of the rare vegetarian fine-dining restaurants in the city, Shakahari at the JW Marriott has a lot to offer. A little on the fancier side, their contemporary-style decor makes for one classy date night. The menu highlights North Indian & Rajasthani food through an a-la-carte Thali – so prepare to eat with your hands. Add a drink to the mix, and you can’t go wrong.

Few things are more romantic than dining by candlelight under a canopy of some of Koregaon Park’s oldest trees. Dario’s is ideal for breakfast with your S.O., or a long-overdue date night. Featuring authentic Italian fare, the menu is balanced between heavy and healthy dishes, so there’s enough variety to choose from.
