A walk through some of the best cafés around town

Cre­ative plat­ter

Away from loud and spa­cious cafés filled with teeny bop­pers, this quiet café, that is also a part of a home and life­style store, is a shin­ing bea­con of light for those hunt­ing for peace and a hot cup of Joe. “I picked the dishes in the menu from my trav­els across the world,” says Mi­tun Chakrabarti, founder and de­signer of Maka Maka. The mini art gallery and dé­cor bears wit­ness to her trav­els through pic­tures, post­cards and photographs. The café hits just the right spot be­tween cosy and cramped. As the home in­te­ri­ors sec­tion is right next door, it is a good past- time to check out artsy pic­tures and peo­ple shop­ping while savour­ing a bite.

CAF­FEINE COUNTER Try the ro­bust and yet soothing gin­ger tea from their se­lect menu.

MUNCH THIS The menu is eclec­tic, to say the least. You can find Span­ish pota­toes, Cap­rese salad, plat­ters of br­uschetta and cheese­cake along with lo­cal street hits like the home­made nimki.

PEO­PLE WATCH This is a treat for an avid shop­per with an eye for de­tail. With their eco- friendly and chichi home prod­ucts like masks, photo frames, ta­ble linen etc., you will see a fair share of arty in­tel­li­gentsia.

IN­SIDER TIP If you are watch­ing your diet don’t miss muri Maka Maka.
