Whenever I plan to go out, more than the place I first zero down on the locations. Which are either; Bandra, Andheri or Lower Parel. This time I plan to explore some unexplored territory. I started thinking where, then through a Google search I found this newly opened café, called Café Corner. It happened to be the only Café in Santacruz East and so I decided to give it a go.
Café Corner, is easy to locate hardly, 5 minutes from Santacruz station. When you enter, it has a section for books and games, one can come alone and enjoy the company of books. Ahead on left, it has a beautiful hand painted wall with nice messages. Further ahead is an open kitchen which is decorated using are some nice Turkish lanterns- Beautiful and Unique in their own way.
We got comfortable on a 4 sitter table and started chatting and playing UNO.
We started our evening with coolers
Mojito – Authentic, has a strong minty taste the kind a Mojito lover prefers.
Pina Colada –More like a Milkshake, was sweet, milky and thick
Turkish Ancient tea – From the time I started watching the Turkish serial Fatmagul, I wanted to try the Turkish tea and here I got the chance, a must have to experience something nice and different
Country Lemonade – Exactly the kind of drink I like.
All their coolers do complete justice to your palette.
Now comes the food
The Paneer Tikka wrap, tandoor roasted cotton cheese with veggies like tomatoes, onion and capsicum with the perfect blend of sauces, makes it melt in your mouth, there are many places where they serve this dish but nothing like the one served at Café Corner.
Next, we ordered, Chicken Club Sandwich and Exotic Veg Sandwich, both were quite satisfying for the appetite and taste, they came along with some freshly made french-fries served in a mini stand holder.
From pastas, we ordered Pesto Chicken Pasta, it was prepared in a way I have hardly seen anywhere. Contrary to the thick sauce pastas, this was dry, cooked in pesto sauce with perfectly cooked chicken
Finally, we called the night by ordering 2 pizza’s, one veg and the other non-veg. We asked them for half-an-half i.e. we got to enjoy 4 different Pizzas, while ordering only two.
Highlights of the Café, they serve perfectly cooked, golden crunchy French fries with nearly all the dishes. So, if you have free-time or finding a new-place to try with friends? Now you know where to go.
