Your next hot cuppa has to be at Ahmedabad’s recently opened ‘coffee bar’ Java+. The menu boasts of single-origin coffees from Colombia, Java and Ethiopia, and the aroma of these freshly brewed, exotic coffees welcomes you inside this swanky all-day café. Also on offer is an eclectic collection of teas from China, Japan and the estates of Darjeeling and Assam. What’s more, the food menu changes by the hour. If you’re in the mood to kick-start your day with some hearty breakfast, then get here early and enjoy the fresh bagels and paninis. But the one thing that stays constant through the day is their hot-selling biryani.
We got there in the evening and asked for their signature frappé Java Chip—a rich mocha blend of chocolate chips and chocolate sauce that is set to turn into a regular here. Our sweet craving didn’t quite end with this shake. Executive Chef Satej Saigaonkar recommended we try their baked New York cheesecake. Cooked to perfection, the cake simply melts in the mouth. What we particularly enjoyed were the Cronuts— an interesting hybrid between croissants and doughnuts.
Another interesting dish on the menu is the Maggi Burger, which is essentially a patty served between two discs made out of your favourite noodles.
Java+ deserves full points for its innovative menu and cosy ambience. It has already become the go-to place for the college students and coffee lovers. Meal for two Rs 1,000 At Java+, Courtyard by Marriott, Ramdevnagar Cross Roads, Satellite, Ahmedabad Tel 07966185000
