Chai Pe Charcha

This is primarily a tea and coffee joint. Regardless, their food offerings are excellent, including the likes of samosas, vada pav, Amritsari paranthas, sandwiches, and upma. Their chai varieties range from the usual adrak (ginger) and Irani chai to hajmola and Inssidewala snaan (detox tea)! As for coffee drinkers, they offer the modest yet irreplaceable south Indian filter kaapi (filter coffee). With plenty of seating space, cute and colorful décor, and a laid-back environment that encourages patrons to linger awhile, this super affordable eating joint is a must-visit. They have two outlets in the city as of now.

Their outstanding happy hour is an added bonus.

Grandmama’s Café

This cute café with outlets in Lower Parel and Dadar does comfort food like few others in the city can. From Rajma Chawal and Keema Pav to homemade Ravioli and Shepherd’s pie – their selection is for Mumbaikars missing home-cooked food. Even the décor here is curated to transport you to Grandma’s kitchen with flower pots, floral prints, old tin boxes, and clunky framed art. With comfortable seating, Wi-Fi, outdoor seating, and being open from 8am to midnight, this is a good spot to bring your co-workers and get some work done.

Lower Parel: Kamala Mills, Senapati Bapat Marg, Next to Gate 4, Lower Parel, +02 224 944 401

Dadar: No.20&21, Pritam Estate, Dr. BA Road, Dadar East, Lokmanya Tilak Colony, Dadar, +02 233 126 045

The Hive

This Khar space is where Mumbai’s creative folk, particularly musicians, gather to collaborate and showcase their talent. With decent coffee, a range of chais, and modestly priced food including sandwiches, pav bhaji, kheema pav and a few choice of pastas, they are equipped to keep your colleagues well-fed. The artsy, cute décor only adds to the whole package.
