India Today - - SIMPLY GUJARATI -

Among its three lo­ca­tions in the city, the Zen café at Navrang­pura scores the high­est purely be­cause of its am­bi­ence, the art gallery next door and the stu­dents who pour in through the day dis­cussing ev­ery­thing from the lat­est ex­hi­bi­tion to pol­i­tics over tall glasses of shakes and cof­fees. The open-to-the-skies café over­looks the pop­u­lar Am­davad ni Gufa, the art gallery that’s built to look like a cave. It’s all about leisure here as you sit around watch­ing artists—ama­teur and renowned—walk by while the chefs whip up your cof­fee or bake a pizza for you. The food op­tions in­clude wraps, pani­nis, small bites like hum­mus with pita, soups and a brief se­lec­tion of pasta and burg­ers. The bev­er­ages how­ever, are ex­ten­sive with hot and cold cof­fees, shakes, tea in­fu­sions and smoothies. The En­ergy Booster is a quick-fix meal in it­self with dates, ba­nana, al­mond and oats. What makes Zen Café stand out is the am­bi­ence that en­cour­ages leisurely con­ver­sa­tions and an ex­change of ideas and not just a quick meal.
