For that steaming cuppa & more: Cuppa Joe

The word coffee spells magic for me as I am a die-hard coffee fan. The steaming cuppa always allures me, so when I heard that a new café had opened onCarter Road, Bandra, Mumbai, I knew I had to pay this “neighbourhood café” a visit.

 A cute little bright café, confronted me as I opened the door and walked in. A bright smile and a cheery hello. My day was made. I settled on the table for two on top, instead of the cosy tables a flight of stairs below. Would go there another day I thought, with my girl gang.

Cookieccino, sounded yummy and irresistible. I loved the sound of it and yes the description too. A coffee with a freshly baked creamy cookies in it. Wow!  The Tuscan Chicken Panini was what I opted for as my stomach gnawed with hunger. It proved to be the right choice. The freshly baked Panini bread was soft and delicious. The semi-hard, aged cheese fromSouthern Italy, Provolone simply melt in my mouth as it generously covered the grilled chicken breast. The veggies and red onions were crunchy and a perfect complement to the cheese and chicken. Filling and value-for-money. Other options on the menu include wraps, sandwiches, salads and pastas. The menu is exciting and offers some great dishes, rather than the run-of-the mill stuff. To beat the heat there are Ice beverages and Fizzlers too.

 Glad I was still a little hungry as I had to do justice to the exotic red velvet cake. Truly one-of-its-kind. A must-try.

Cuppa Joe is going to be a place to watch out as it has a great location and the food and service too show a lot of promise. A lively place with vibrant colours and a pleasant ambience. It beckons you immediately.

They also have their very own bakery and patisserie where they make cakes and pastries for special occasions.

The brainchild of two enterprising brothers, Vardhaman and Rushabh Choksi of Escobar fame. They are die-hard Indians and want to give their people an Indian experience at par with international standards. Good vision I must say. I have to go back soon for the giant cookie monster and yes the breakfast too soon.
