Asha Tiffins, HSR

‘Asha Tiffins’ is a small place in HSR that serves super-cheap but incredibly delicious snacks and filter coffee. We always used to eye this place with curiosity, since it was always packed with customers, and all of them standing. Upon visiting, I discovered there are some benches inside to sit, but as always the place was packed; so we took a table outside.

Menu is very basic and has the usual: vada, idli, filter coffee, some soups, couple of meals etc. The eatery is very clean and service is fast.

That Garage Cafe, HSR Layout

“That Garage Cafe” is a garage themed cafe in HSR and part of the place rents/sells cycles and bikes too. The cafe is not very big and has an interesting decor with tables shaped like bike tyres, napkin holders made out of audio cassettes etc. There are some board games as well like scrabble, monopoly etc.

I saw some massive stunning Enfields(I could identify only Americana) outside for sale/rent. So if you are a bike lover, do go to this place.

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.

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.
