Flight Network Foodie India Diaries Let's Save Some Dough
Mumbai is a crazy busy city. There are markets, temples, and so much more to explore. While it’s fun to get lost in the crowd, you’ll definitely be looking for a place to rest your feet after a walking tour. What better place to do that than a cafe? Not only do these lovely places provide a nice place to kill time, they offer food and (more importantly) coffee! While you can pick just any cafe to go to, below is a list of the absolute coolest cafes in the city to check out and make the most of your relaxing coffee break!

If you’re looking to take a break from the hustle and bustle of the city, be sure to head to Theobroma. Fun fact, Theobroma literally translates to “Food of the Gods.” And this cafe is a family-run business that has a very loyal following in Mumbai. How can it not with such decadent desserts? Their Tiered Temptation will surely live up to its name. Your tastebuds will be in heaven at the very first bite of this chocolate orange mousse cake. If you don’t have a craving for something sweet, don’t worry! This cafe offers plenty, including an all-day breakfast and freshly baked breads with dips.

Cafes have a special place in our hearts. They offer a sanctuary and respite in the middle of a bustling city. Le 15 is that sanctuary. In the crowded streets of Mumbai, you’ll step into this cafe and be transported into a space that reminds you of all the French movies you’ve seen. But in India, of course. There is always an eclectic mix of people posted up in this cafe. You’ll meet creative types, workers, travelers, and more who you can connect with. Or you can just relax on your own with one of their signature coffees and savory breakfasts while enjoying their perfectly curated playlists. Talk about a lovely way to rest your feet before or after your exploration of Mumbai!

Okay, this one isn’t exactly a cafe. But it’s still worth checking out. When on vacation, it’s okay to indulge a little (or a lot). Country Of Origin is one of the BEST bakeries you’ll find in Mumbai. And the cool thing about this bakery is that they love desserts from all over, so they make desserts from all over. Their desserts in a jar are fan favorites and come in flavors from Caramel Cream to Traditional Black Forest Cake. If you’re not feeling the jars, no worries! They have traditional cakes, cookies, even muffins. In addition to superb desserts, they also have breads and dips. So if you’re more of a savoury than sweet person, no worries. Country Of Origin covers all the bases.

Cafes, cats, supporting animal shelters and adoptions while drinking coffee? Sign us up! At Cat Café Studio, this friendly cat cafe will allow you to meet the most loveable furry felines. There are always about 15 or so cats at a time here, so plenty of love to go around. They partner with the Feline Foundation, and all of the cats here are rescues who are just looking for their forever homes or a friendly pet to pass the time. This place has an extensive drink menu, as well as food menu. There’s a separate area where you can enjoy your food and drink without the possibility of a cat knocking your dish to the floor. But if you’re feeling risky, you can bring your food or drink into the cat area. You just need to keep a careful eye on it. And not feed the cats.

Coffee Culture is a really cool cafe. They have multiple spaces around the city, and each space has a different vibe. But their goal of being a place to gather and do your own thing while connecting with the local culture is met. You can spend hours here any time of day. It’s a nice place to come with a group of friends, or on your own. Their coffees are obviously killer, but their food is also delicious. Presentation-wise, all of their food and drinks are perfect for Instagram. Where else can you get a pizza in a treasure box or a delicious fishbowl cocktail? This place inspires creativity and whimsy.
