Best new cafes in Bangalore to pop by for your next steaming cup of ‘Joe

Elegant French viennoiserie to unique caffeinated creations – Bangalore’s cafes boast of some of the best, most eclectic menus in the country. Complete with Pinterest-worthy decor and WiFi facilities — these can go from being the perfect makeshift office to ideal first-date destinations. Best part? Considering all the new spaces opening up of late — you don’t have to brave the city’s infamous traffic to get a taste of it all. Here’s what’s popping.

From being spaces for political discussions in The Age Of Enlightenment to serving as go-to spots for get-togethers and work meetings – cafes have truly evolved. Within India, a string of new options populate the streets and bylanes of most major cities every other month. Bangalore – which just so happens to be home to some of the best artisanal coffee the country has seen – is no exception. Better yet, it features a diverse set of establishments – serving cheesecakes and chocolate bubble teas to old-school steaks and omelettes. Not to mention, experimentative bites (tomato cake, anyone?).

Catering to sugar cravings, mid-day hunger pangs, and all hankering for unique bites – it’s no surprise why these spaces continue to draw diners in scores. Or why there’s a new one putting up an “open” sign every so often. Whether you’re keen on cafe hopping across the city or just need a change of scenery from your usual spot – we’ve got a ready reckoner of nooks worth adding to your dining rotation. All you need to do is bring your appetite.
