Cafes are probably the best place to cherish some quality time with friends. The best part of cafes is that it is not just for the coffee or snacks that people walk in here for, it is the people which matters the most. Mumbai cafes are excellent place to meet new people and make new friends. Thousands of people walk into the cafes every day, they read, work, make network or simply watch and listen. In Mumbai, the location of the cafes is important and a lot depends on the location itself what you would see and hear. When you look for “creative-types”, the cafes of Bandra and Andheri are just great. These places are also great for celeb-spotting; the famous cafes are always buzzing with Bollywood celebrities.
If you want to simply sit with a cup of coffee, then you can have a nice time indulging yourself simply in eavesdropping and watching people. With the café spilling over with people it’s great to listen to people talking on so many queer topics.
The strategic location and free Wi-Fi facility always draw a huge population to the Nariman Point cafes, the Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf. People getting too bored to sit in the office find this place a great alternative. Here you will find people of all kinds, from executives, busy in their spreadsheet to aspiring actors, models or youngsters. Even columnists, stand-up comedians, freelance writers and tourists swarm over here due to free Wi-Fi.
While the renowned coffee chains like The Barista, Café Coffee Day, Costa Coffee and Gloria Jeans are a bit expensive in terms of coffee and food, the stand-alone cafés are the most sought after joints because they ensure affordability.
