Plain jane

India Today - - SIMPLY KOLKATA -

On Syed Amir Ali Av­enue, this is the pop­u­lar chain of cafes’ fourth ven­ture into the city. Just op­po­site the Ice Skat­ing Rink, Chai Break has taken up the spot where an old favourite In­dus Val­ley used to be. The menu re­mains sim­i­lar with typ­i­cal café bites of pas­tas, piz­zas and sand­wiches. The dé­cor is fuss- free and sim­plis­tic. White chairs up­hol­stered with jewel- toned vel­vet and match­ing ta­bles give it a plain and straight­for­ward look.

CAF­FEINE COUNTER It has a good se­lec­tion of hot and cold bev­er­ages with sat­is­fy­ingly thick and creamy shakes. Oreo cold cof­fee and Kit- Kat shake are the pop­u­lar picks. A huge se­lec­tion of shee­sha is also a draw.

MUNCH THIS The menu is veg­e­tar­ian but falafel in pita bread and piz­zas are tried and tested dishes.

PEO­PLE WATCH Pocket friendly menu and flavoured shee­sha can just mean one thing— a lot of teeny bop­pers.

IN­SIDER TIP If you are a sweeth tooth, you might want to stay away. It isn’t big on desserts and choices are lim­ited.
