Sweet dreams are made of filter coffee desserts at these 8 spots in Bengaluru

Few things beat the satisfaction of piping hot filter coffee, brewed extra strong. The local beverage has fuelled South India for decades and is an indispensable part of menus across restaurants in Bengaluru. Some of them have experimented with the beloved beverage to introduce delicious desserts that sweet dreams are made of.

The beverage of choice for most South Indians in the morning, the frothy, intense flavour of filter coffee traces its origins back to the early 17th century if local lore is to be believed. A sufi saint named Baba Budan smuggled coffee beans in from (present-day) Yemen and planted them in the Chandragiri Hills of the Chikmagalur district. Thus began a tryst with coffee that has now embedded itself firmly in South Indian culture.

A classic combination is filter kaapi and breakfast foods like idli and dosa. And most spots in the city will offer you a cup of kaapi at the end of every meal, regardless of the cuisine. A few spots in Bengaluru have taken this a step further with filter coffee desserts that are the perfect way to round off a meal.

A local favourite bar that serves South Indian finger food, the name Bob comes from Bengaluru slang for “bro” or “dude.” The spot pays tribute to the city and the food culture of Karnataka through its menu, which includes Mangalorean pork chilli bafat, Madikeri raw banana cutlet, and Bengaluru street food like mutton keema with egg paratha, amongst other things. Their filter coffee cheesecake, however, is what comes highly recommended. It includes a coffee toffee on a rose cookie crush, filled with Chikamagaluru coffee. Decadent and delicious!
