We had gone for a book fair at Pragati Maidan a few months ago. It was my first time in a book fair of that magnitude. No surprises there, I was super happy. The heat and the crowd were unbearable though. But with hands overflowing with books, it was a good day. To top that day with a cherry, we went to Café LOTA. Now when I look back to that day, I feel a quiet glowing contentment. It was not a perfect day, there was stress hovering in my head, but in that moment I was fine. That is what I remember Café LOTA for. It was peaceful.

They serve Indian food – I liked how they seemed to have specialties from all parts of the country. Reading the menu itself was ‘refreshing’. They had a tempting range of teas and coffees. I was with two other friends. Together we ordered one of the coffees – I think it was Vienna roast but I am not sure, Parsi Salli Boti, Konkan Fish Curry and Goan Galinha Cafreal (me) for main course, followed by Apple cinnamon Jalebi with coconut rabdi for dessert.

The food was very good though the Jalebi was a tiny bit disappointing (too sweet, too crispy). I want to try their Bhapa Doi cheesecake next time. The ambience of the place was very relaxing. We were sitting outside, I am not sure if they have indoor seating as well. We reached there a little late and couldn’t visit the museum. O I didn’t tell you that? Yes, this café is located in the premises of Crafts Museum. Needless to say the décor was very arty.

If it was not so far from my place, I would have certainly gone there again already. You must visit.
