I’m going to start the restaurant review section with a twin review of two of the most popular caffeine dispensers in Bangalore.

A trip to the Cha bar at the Leela Galleria on Airport Road is a very rejuvenating experience. Set among the literary atmosphere of Landmark, with internet in the air (they have free wi-fi!), the tea parties at Cha Bar can last a relaxingly long amount of time. 

They have a huge variety of teas to choose from of course. Each type of tea is served its own characteristic manner (my Ceylon tea came along with a Wodehouse-ian cow-creamer full of milk). But importantly, for people who aren’t too fond of their cuppa, they have an excellent array of snacks to choose from. And yes, they serve excellent pakodas to go with the tea.

Great place to while away the leisourly hours with a cuppa in one hand and a book in the other. Recommended.

Ambience: 3.5/5 (a bit cramped for space)

Food: 4/5

Pricing: 4/5 (reasonable)

Service: 4/5

The first restaurant that I visited in Bangalore was the charming Coffee World near Eva Mall. The place is spacious and seems like a hipper version of the numerous coffee chains. When at Coffee World, follow the proven effective three step process : sit down, strech your arms and order the strawberry waffles. Absolute bliss. 

They also have a tasty selection of sandwiches which come with a variety of breads (panini, brown, etc to choose from. The solitary fruit based drink I had there was nothing special but I haven’t tried enough from the liquid section to make up a mind on them.

 It is definitely a great place to unwind with friends. Recommended.

Ambience: 4/5

Food: 4/5 (the waffles steal the show)

Pricing: 3.5/5 (a wee bit overpriced)

Service: 3.5/5
