All shook up

India Today - - SIMPLY KOLKATA -

Off AJC Bose Road- The­atre Road cross­ing, Mocha was the talk of the town when it upped its shut­ters in 2010. Three birth­days and var­i­ous menu rein­ven­tions later, the quirky brightly coloured in­te­ri­ors and its Fer­rerro Rocher shake and Maggi noo­dles are still a hit with hip, young teenagers, who pre­fer the smok­ing sec­tion up­stairs that of­fers shee­sha. Young pro­fes­sion­als also flock to the café but pre­fer to stay clear of the shee­sha smoke and mostly lounge in the cosy high- backed chairs.

CAF­FEINE COUNTER Of­fers a huge range of sin­gle ori­gin cof­fees like Jami­a­can Blue Moun­tain, Brazail Bour­bon San­tos and Kenya AA.

MUNCH THIS The Mon­treal Pou­tine Veg is an ab­so­lute must try
