The Flying Squirrel, Koramangala

The Flying Squirrel” is a small cafe located right above ‘Asia Kitchen’ in Koramangala, and in a short time it has garnered great reviews for its brews.

We dropped in for coffee over a weekend and the place was buzzing. Menu here has a long list of different kinds of brews, and while we both enjoy coffee, none of us is an expert. So instead of choosing one of their brews, we asked for a Vietnamese cold coffee, a black coffee on the rocks and a slice of their freshly baked lemon cake.

The Hole in the Wall Cafe, Koramangala

This legendary place called ‘The Hole in the Wall Cafe‘ had been on my list forever and I never got to visit it due to the never-ending queues there. The place doesn’t take reservations and parking is a hassle, which doesn’t help the case either!

So the other day when this place popped up on my Swiggy app, I was very happy and we both decided to order from there. They have a superb breakfast menu as well as lots of burgers/sandwiches to choose from. I placed an order for a grilled double chicken sandwich, big ‘shrooms & onions sandwich and a portion of hash browns.

Cafe Felix, 1 MG Mall

1 MG Mall has some excellent dining options, Cafe Felix being a recent addition. The word “Felix” roughly translates to happy or lucky according to google and the cafe does look like its name, happy and bright.

I had added this cafe to my to-visit list after reading some great reviews in Bangalore Times. I went here this Saturday and was instantly charmed by the bright interiors and glass walls. The place looked perfect for a lazy lunch with its comfortable seating and rain pattering against glass walls.

The menu is not very big, but filled with delicious dishes. I ordered for a portion of fish & chips and asked my server if they had any cold coffees (there were none on the menu). He graciously agreed to get an iced caffe latte for me according to my specifications.

Boca Grande, Koramangala

After being stuck at home for most part of Saturday(first due to a long jam and then thunderstorms), we decided to go out for lunch on Sunday. Boca Grande was chosen because of its beautiful photos and tempting menu.

We reached the cafe around 1:30 and took a table inside. Their outdoor seating is picture perfect with wooden benches and cobblestone ground, but it was quite hot to sit outside. So we moved in and took our time choosing a table since the place was almost empty(now I think we should’ve taken the hint :)).

Muffets and Tuffets, Koramangala

Muffets & Tuffets is a beautiful cafe in Koramangala that derives its name from an old nursery rhyme called “Little Miss Muffet“. We went here for lunch this weekend and had some surprisingly good food.

They have a big menu with loads of stuff to choose from, everything from sandwiches, burgers, salads to delicious sounding mains. There is also a very tempting dessert counter which is not to be missed 🙂 The cafe has decent amount of seating and is very quiet & peaceful. Seating is very comfortable and service is pretty good.

Grapevine, HSR Layout

A dreamy little cafe, hot cup of tea, some yummy snacks and a crossword puzzle with Mr.H and I felt I could spend my entire evening here. How could I have failed to notice this place!

This charming cafe has simple yet classy decor, an open bookshelf built around a huge tree trunk and a wine rack with some wines on display near the entrance. The place has a cozy feel to it, and the glass wall on one side makes it look bright and spacious.

I think I spent first half an hour just gazing around at the lovely surroundings, and then my eyes fell upon coloring sheets and a crossword puzzle on our table (yay!). Our server handed us their beautiful menus and a big case of color pencils for the coloring sheets 😀

They have varieties of coffees, teas, shakes and appetizing dishes. We asked for coco berry tea, macchiato, a portion of spinach & artichoke onion rings, and started off with the crossword puzzle 🙂

Service was super quick and our server appeared soon with our food and beverages. Tea was accompanied by delicious chocolate cookies. Both tea and coffee were excellent, but the showstopper was onion rings.

Slices of onion stuffed with spinach and cheese, dipped in a light batter and fried to perfection, sinful and delicious 🙂 I loved the light batter, which made the onion rings light and fluffy rather than weighing them down. The dip served along with the dish was equally good. I wish they start serving even number of rings, so that we won’t have to fight over the last piece 😀

The cafe is an absolute delight, and we had an amazing time with incredible food and puzzles. It’s a perfect place to relax. I am definitely going back for dinner soon!

Tea Trails Bistro, HSR Layout

HSR’s food scene is rapidly evolving, and it’s good to see so many new places popping up. Tea trails opened its first outlet in Koramangala a few months back, followed by this one in HSR recently.

It is a small cafe located on HSR main road with a sizeable tea menu. They have some seating on first floor as well, but it was reserved for a private party when we visited. They have an extensive tea menu and a pretty good food menu too.
